    Default Chester scared the you know what out of us..

    Last night he was choking on a treat that he wolfed down with hardly chewing it .. it was so bad he wasn't getting any air After about a minute (and I was starting to freak out).. he had SEVERAL episodes of vomiting and it came out This morning he was still doing a "snorting" "gagging" kind of thing, but he hasn't done it now in a few hours..so hopefully that is the end of that too. Almost like he had some mucus (or vomit) stuck in his nose - as the vomit was coming out his nose too last night My poor boy - I though for a minute there we were at a point of no return
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    Yep... pretty scary!!! I hate that they devour their food or treats like they will never get another. I now give my dogs bite size treats for this very reason.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    How Scary! I'm glad he is ok now. HRH would do something like that. We have learned not to give her big treats. She does not chew, just sucks it down too. She has choked and vomited before, just not THAT bad.

    I'll bet there is the equivalent to a heimlich one could do on a dog, but I wouldnt know how to do it. I think i will do a google and see if I can find instructions.

    Poor Chester! I know you must have been totally freaked! Belly had something caught from just a few seconds and I was practically in tears! Hope Chester is feeling better in a little! Poor guy vomiting out his nose!

    They also teach dog first aid and cpr ... I know none of us would ever want to have to do this, but it could be better to be prepared than not. I started to think about it after seeing Shorty bring someone in to teach his employees these things (Pit Boss on Animal Planet - we are a little in love with this show and Pit Bulls and Parolees). Something I am thinking about doing this summer with my daughter since she takes care of other dogs besides Chunk too.
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Oh wow...I bet that did scare the out of you. Glad to hear he is okay. Don't they know not to scare us like that. Brodie was outside and hid from me today. I called and called him but no Brodie. Ran into the house in a panic and called him and called him, no Brodie. I walked back into the living room to go back out and look AGAIN and there he was standing in the doorway with dirt all over his face. Scary, my heart was in my toe! I told him not to scare me like that and he gave me a look that said "oh okay" and turned and went outside. I swear he knew he scared me.
