Choking on raw?
I put my three chihuahuas on a raw diet a couple of months ago, and the benefits are extraordinary. All three of my chis have gone from being lazy to active, and my overweight chi, Chloe, shed all the pounds I've been trying to get her to lose for three years.
I feed a wide range of meats, though I mainly stick to chicken and beef as those are readily available near me.
Everything had been going swimmingly up until recently. Occasionally, my dogs have been choking when feed RMB. I watch them while they eat, and just as I think they're in the clear and that there's nothing left that they could possibly choke on, bam. They're struggling.
Today, Chloe had a particularly bad choking attack, and it took ten minutes of our assistance to get the bone free. And now I'm scared to feed raw again. I honestly thought I was going to lose her tonight.
But I don't want to stop feeding raw unless absolutely necessary as it's so healthy for them, and they're like different dogs now. They're no longer the lazy little lumps they used to be.
So any tips to prevent choking while feeding RMB would be appreciated, as would any tips on how to relieve choking symptoms as I've heard varied information about this and would like to be fully prepared so I can help my dogs in the correct way.
Thank you in advance
