    Default Choking

    We just went through a HUGE scare with Heff.
    Heff is a very fast eater (we have tried everything to slow him down to no avail). Tonight he started choking and it got to the point his eyes became very watery and he started to fall over and lose his balance. He was finally able to cough it out.
    My question is is there some sort of bulldog heimlich maneuver? Or what can a person do when your bully is choking?

    Oh ..I bet you were terrified..and this is a great question. Jake also eats way too fast..but we've been able to slow him down with a slow feed ball enough to keep him from throwing up. I'll be watching this thread to see if there is something to do in a case like Heffs.

    Please lets not turn this post into how to slow down your dogs eating.
    I would like to keep it to what to do in a emergency choking situation.
    Thanks

    I have heard from a friend of mine who has bulldogs that she had a young one choking on food, she opened up the mouth and went in after it. That's scary, I think that's what I would have to do too. I don't know if Heimlich would work or not, hope I never have to find out.

    Bo choked one time precisely as you described @heff101. I opened up that mouth and thrust my finger down his throat to dislodge whatever was stuck in there. It was like having a heart attack, right before work..... Interestingly, Mr. Fast Eater did slow down a BIT after that incident. I also switched to smaller size kibble after that as an extra precaution.

    My reply was not intended to you.
    I just know how threads can go and I just was saying lets keep it to the subject at hand.
    Sorry if I mislead you.

    Based on the width of a bullies mouth man CPR would be hard to do to them.

    @heff101 haha that's true, just have to keep their mouths shut and breath through their nose. I've done that on a couple of pups before and it works. I just held their mouth shut and breathed through their little nose.
