What to do with choking animal?

Indy was eating a bone and he coughed a bit and it made me wonder what I should do if he got something stuck in his throat.
If he started choking what shall I do?
or the cats...

Sounds scary.
What if the dog is struggling against you or it is a little puppy?
We had a very small yorkshire terrier that was choking and we kept slapping him on the back, in the end we took him to the vets but it was after hours and no1 would see him.
Luckily we managed to get it out.

I have read that article before and its very informative and great information and something worth keeping hold of incase it ever should happen. I always say if your unsure get to your vets asap as there are many reasons a dog can cough and in the time your messing around the dog could die, the vets in this country all offer out of hours service so whatever time of the day and night theres someone around especially in an emergency

In one of my classes i learned its easier for humans to choke then for animals. Over evolution as people where able to talk and make sounds to make words our larnix moved, and we deveoped two tubes in our throut. and its easier for humans to choke because of it. that our tubes are arnt connected. The phrase if have you kinda choke "i swallowed down the wrong tube" animals have 1 tube hence not being able to talk (other then a bark or a meow), and its not touching their larnix but humans have 2 thats why its easier for us to choke. I will need to make sure this is true its in one of my text books but i think thats fairly right or close anyway. This is why humans have a higher chance of chokeing.

The nearest vet to us is at least driving fast half an hour away.
I would give that advice a go but I just think it would be quite hard as both you and the dog would be panicky.

Thats human nature to panic but if your in that kind of situation the adrenalin kicks in and you get through it some how with a focused mind especially if its the difference between life and death for you pet!

We learned this in vet tech, I'm glad too, I'm sure I'd still be very nervous.
