Heimlich maneuver

I just got a BIG scare-- Comet was eating his dinner and then started coughing.... then he seemed to just stare at me. No noise just big eyes!
I had to do the heimlich maneuver on him and then he
Afterward he then went back to eating like nothing happened.
He and Oliver are now playing like nothing happened.
I am so glad I was home and had taken that pet first aid class.

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

OMG!!!! I'm glad you took that class too. Now I'm going to be searching for a class near me. I'm glad he's OK.

I thought I might need that class for an injury......never gave the heimlich maneuver much thought before this.

Sally--what did Comet choke on? How scary! I was taught that you should still follow up with your vet because some internal injury could have occured that you are not aware of. I am glad Comet seems to be doing fine!

Sally, I'm so glad Comet was okay. What's the difference between the one for dogs and the one for humans? Is there a site we can look at and learn or do we need to go to a class?
