having trouble swallowing Can't Post

i noticed that today Teddy is having problem swallowing. He used to swallowed his meal like Im gonna take away his meal everytime. But today, he seems to be muching one biscuit at a time to small pieces and play around with it. He loves bread very much and will tend to swallow. But today, with the normal pieces that I tear for him, he cannot manage to swallow at all.

This is weird and frightening. Maybe yesterday night he actually swallowed something sharp and got stuck some where?? I tried looking into his mouth but cant see anything as he is moving...or mayb its really deep inside his throat??

Anyone encountered the same thing before? I will be bringing him to the vet to hv a look. See what i can get from there.

Please advice. I am worried sick right now.
Regards
Lisa

Hi Lisa, understand the worry but the best thing to do is let the vet have a look. This does happens to my dog once but his case was because he's bored witht he same food. Having changed the brand, he's now gobbling down his food like crazy. I usually leave him alone to have his food coz I don't want him to get choke. Sometime I just stand a distance in front of him just to let him know that I'm there while he eats. Otherwise, he'll gobble up the food quickly to begin playing. Like human, it's better to let them chew before swallowing. Oso I try not to rub or touch him too much while he's eating. just letting him enjoy his meal Wink. Do let the vet look-see

Hi Lisa,

I once have the problem with one of my mongrel Kiddo. For Kiddo's case it was due to changing of teeth when she was about 5-6 months old.
How old is your doggie?
Anyway as Jason says do let the vet take a look and keep us posted on the status .

Many doggie cheers,

Cheng See

Well, he is going to be one year old next month so i dun think its the teething problem.

yeah will bring him to the vet, but bf told me to monitor first before sending him there. Then this will be a day delay.

sigh....will see la

Hi Lisa,

I totally understand your worry and fear, as my Bonney (yellow lab) she is now coming to 4 months old, last week she swallowed something ( sorry to tell that i not sure what is that) but after few days, she is OK now, but my worry come again, as yesterday night, when i let her out in the living room running around and playing his toy (basketball) she accidentally swallowed a small portion of the plastics from the broken ball. Not sure whether the missing part of the basketball will come out when she poo poo this coming evening or day after. I had call the vet, and has been advice that if she still has appetite, then is OK, if not will need to bring her for examination.

Will keep you all posted on the updates.

By the way, Cheng See, how can I change the unwanted and worrying behaviour from my nauthy Bonney.
