Had a choking issue...
Miya has never been one to gobble her food down, but this morning we had a choking episode. It was severe enough for my husband to give her the heimlich and also pat her between the shoulders pretty hard. The heimlich worked thankfully and she is ok now, but it scared all of us pretty bad. She was eating when it happened so I'm guessing she just didn't chew her food enough.
We began feeding Acana Wild Prarie about 3 months ago. When we first started feeding, I noticed the kibble was bigger than ideal for a small dog like Miya or Domo. They didn't have any problems with it, but since today's event occurred, I am thinking of switching to a smaller kibble. Does anyone else feed Wild Prarie?
I have considered adding water to the kibble to soften it up but Miya and Domo don't eat on a normal schedule. They get a small amount of food at 7AM and 6PM, and sometimes they skip breakfast and only eat once a day. Sometimes they eat 3 times a day, so it's really random. I don't want to add water to it and it be soggy and go to waste. Any advice?
