Well, if finally happened - the scare of my lifetime! A while back we were posting here about what to give our kritters to chew. My vet recommended Denta Stix or Pedigree Denta Bone. I chose the Denta-Stix, as they seem to be able to break off small pieces and chew them up!
I gave our guys their usual Denta-Stix this morning - only to have my worse nightmare happen! Schatzi got a piece stuck in her throat. Thank dawg her hoodad stays calm & cool during a crisis (Schatzi had gone limp & her eyes were rolling back in her head). He was able to open her mouth, reach in and very gently & quickly pluck it from her throat. (all the while her hooman Mom is crying her head off!).
Schatzi had an watching over her today - she is fine, fully recovered. (Me? Not so quick to recover)
Did I mention my husband is my hero? (again). No more Denta Stix ever in my house.
So, please be careful what you give your furkins to chew.
