Can anyone direct me to a useful site where i can learn how to do this manouver?? My girl Zoe gave me one hell of a fright this morning, she choked on a big piece of steak that the cat knocked off the bench. The poor girl, i am sure i was so close to losing her.
One bitten finger and very freyed nerves later i got her breathing again.
I'm not sure about it but it would be helpful to know. I've had to turn a pug or two upside down and shake and that seemed to work to dislodge a food object for me. Came flying right out. Was scary when they go limp you know then your in trouble.
That is what frightened me the most, she had like a fit then went limp. She came around pretty quick when the meat dislodged. She is a problem child,lol.
Google Heimlich dog (note the spelling) and you will find a lot of stuff.

There is a sticky in the Health Forum for this: https://www.pugvillage.com/forum/pug-...-manuever.html
On that thread, there is a downloadable .pdf file to print and hang in your house for quick reference.
