How to Help a Choking Dog – Smaller Dogs



if you have a small dog that is choking then you would in the same way as we showed with boo you would very carefully open open the mouth and have a look make sure you're not putting yourself at risk of being bitten and then with a small dog you can put them hold them by their thighs and you can actually shake them to see if you can dislodge whatever is got stuck and then again you would move on to the Heimlich maneuver where you make a fist put it under here and up and squeeze and you do that up to five times and then get them off to the vet as quickly as you can

  1. OH MY GOSH YOU JUST SAVED MY NANS DOG. she was in the bath and I was sitting on the lounge and he started chocking and I’m 11 and OMG u just saved him Thank you so so much

  2. I saw this video as soon as I got my pupper, which was about a year ago, just to be prepared. And today it happened, he ate his food too quickly without even chewing it and started to choke badly!! I panicked for a micro-second but quickly got to action and performed what I remembered from this video on my dog.
    You guys literally saved my dog – and so many others as well.
    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this straightforward and informative video.
    Cheers from Portugal! 🙂

  3. Your Hero my dog savior I'm such an awful dog mom instead of thinking straight I panicked and just left my poor baby alone and she started shaking and now she's okay ????????????

  4. The time of the video is life saving. When an emergency such as a dog choking time is crucial and long videos might not come in handy. Thank you

  5. I've been doing this to puppies for three years now, and never knew I was doing it right… (Although, I held her by the torso.She's a 1 1/2 month old Shih Tzu by the way…)

  6. Used these techniques on my small dog this morning while she was choking on her breakfast. It was successful but took longer than people realize. Keep going and don't stop trying.

  7. The smaller being held by only the two hind legs seems a bit harsh. Wouldn’t their tiny Kim’s possibly snap while trying to force out the foreign object ?

  8. My dog was choking on a big bone and couldn’t breathe and I put my hands down his mouth and made him throw up
    He’s ok now..
