Breathing & Respiratory Problems In Pets

Choking can be a serious problem, but often it looks worse than it is. Animals are very good at clearing an obstruction themselves, so give them time and space to try to clear the obstruction. Do not push your fingers down the throat of an animal, as you may push the item down or get bitten. If the animal becomes unresponsive, chest compressions can help to clear an obstruction. Prevention is best, so make sure food is safe to eat and stored out of reach.
