Did you know that one of the most common pet emergency seen by the vets is CHOKING?
The causes could range from a swallowed toy ball to a broken bone or anything else that your pitbull decided to eat. This happens especially with puppies.
Knowing which steps to take first could literally mean the difference between life and death.
The first step is to open your dog´s mouth sweeping it with your fingers to see if there is something that is visibly obstructing it.
If you can´t see anything then the next step is to grab your dog and put him upside down. (you can do this if the dog is not too heavy).
If your dog is too heavy you need to have him lying down on one side and then do some thrusts in the abdomen area.
To see how these techniques are done in details I highly recommend getting the CPR for Pets DVD It´s made by a professional vet and is very handy in case of an emergency
