Sounds a little funny in the title; it wasn’t while it was happening.
My fourteen-year-old pug has had most of her teeth pulled, but she still manages fine on dry dog food - up until now. This morning she started choking while eating her kibble, then fell over on her side and her tongue started to turn blue. She wasn’t breathing. I remembered a poster showing how to give the heimlich maneuver to a baby, and figuring that a pug was pretty much the size of a human baby, arranged her on my arm, head downwards and butt upwards. I thumped her several times between the shoulder blades, and she gagged up four or five kibble and then started gasping for air. Thank the god of canines I was there watching her eat.
From now on, she gets canned Mighty Dog.
