Lesson Learned

Last night my wife hurriedly brought our 15 lb. Bichon-Shitsu down the steps. The dog was gagging and obviously not breathing well. I took her and instinctivley applied the Heimlich maneuver three times. Something popped and she immediately started playing again! My first ever application but it worked, even for a small animal.

I have saved my wife twice over the years with this technique.
She no longer talks while chewing.
