Mr. Peepers was choking....

Earlier today I just got done putting my boys' bowls down and heard Mr. Peepers making the wierdest noise. Horrible weezing noise. I went up to him and watched him and seen that he was still breathing but it was very hard.

I didn't know what to do. I thought if I try and take him to the vet, he could be passed out before I even got there. And since he could still breath (very labored though) I decided to try and help him get it out. I didn't want him to freak out so I sat on the kitchen floor and called him. He came up to me and sat on my lap. I rubbed under the chin on his throat hoping it would help him to swallow it. He would get this huge coughs, like he was trying to dislodge it. So I just kept holding him and petting him, trying to keep him and myself calm. Eventually he let out a huge cough and out flew the food.

I was so dang scared. This was happening for over a few minutes and I just kept thinking that my boy was going to choke to death right in front of me. He was breathing but it was so bad that his whole neck would suck in from him struggling to get air.

So scary but at least he is o.k. now. :)

Yikes! :shock: That had to be horrible for you I am so sorry.

I too had a similar experience with Ginger. I did not witness it but my parents were dog sitting one night and Ginger got up on the table and grabbed a baby stepdad caught her and I guess being scared she either inhaled the carrot or tried swallowing it so not to be caught...anyway she started to parents called me at work yelling that Ginger wasnt breathing. Before I could wrap my head around what they were saying I heard them say..."oh thank god she caughed it up". I was about ready to scream at them over the phone to tell me what the heck was going on. I am glad I wasnt there to witness that becuase I guess her tongue got blue and she wasnt making any noises... :shock:

I couldnt imagine watching your chi not be able to breath. I am so glad he is okay. Did you ever find out what it was he was choking on? Gosh they can make us worry cant they.
Glad to hear he is okay Kari!
