Seeing your dog pawing at his nose, giving high pitched coughing sound may be an indication your dog is choking on something. It is important to act FAST and check it out. He might have just gotten something in his eyes, or have a cold. But if he is actually choking, you’ll want to be ready to help. At this point, your dog may not be able to breathe. Watching this video BEFORE a traumatic experience might just save his life!
Dr. Andrew Linklater explains how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver to clear the airway if your dog ever is at risk of choking on a foreign object or food.
