continuing on our theme of pet safety here is some info on choking and the Heimlich manoeuver. My daughter saved her Dachshund last year with this procedure. It is a little easier with small dogs , Heimlich Maneuver for a Choking Pet

Thanks. I have often wondered how to do this as I know it's always a possiblity that a dog could choke on something they are chewing on. I try to watch the bully sticks or whatever, and take them away when they are small enough to fit in Willow's mouth. I heard that Oprah Winfrey had one of her dogs choke to death on a tennis ball. That would be horrifying.

We once had a meatball roll off the table and on to the floor (there is a camp song about that) and our Cairn Terrier grabbed it and swallowed and it got stuck in her throat. I stuck my finger down her throat and pierced the meatball and pulled it out. A dramatic dinner time rescue.
