CHOKING
 
It is rare for animals to choke. Animals that are choking are usually very anxious because they are having difficulty breathing. Be careful in trying to look in the mouth or extract any foreign objects because the animal may bite, even if normally they do not bite. If choking is due to a foreign object, check the gums and tongue color. If they are pale or blue the animal is not getting enough air and must be seen immediately if you can't dislodge the object. You can try to perform a mini-Heimlich maneuver by pressing quickly around the chest to force an object out of the upper throat area. Transport your pet to a veterinarian or Animal Urgent Care immediately.
