Is anything being done to help dislodge the blockage? I had my colt choke twice in one week when I switched over to new feed. My dad and I massage up and down his throat to help dislodge the feed. He coughed multiple times and ended up coughing a chunk of feed onto me. How is he acting? Is he just standing there with his head down? Good luck to your boy, I hope everything turns out okay. It is definitely a scary thing to deal with.

OK, just got home, home is close, can't get ahold of the vet, he seems a lot better than the first time this happened. Does anyone know of a vet near elkins wv? Or something I can do for him while I wait??

Massage his neck while you're waiting. Start underneath the jaw and rub with firm pressure all the way down the base of his chest, then back up towards the jaw. I did this with my colt both times he choked and it helped dislodge the blockage. Within 5 minutes of coughing the feed up he went back to eating his feed like nothing ever happened. Good for you already making contact with the vet.

Tracy is our regular vet. He is breathing OK, and is very normal acting

Good job! If he is willing to eat or drink anything, then he should be in the clear. I wouldn't give him anything to eat though until the vet clears it.

He wants to eat everything, but puckered up again like choke... Still can't get a vet on the phone!

If it's going to go wrong it's going to go wrong today I guess... Still no answer from the vets...

We let him have a tiny bit of food and all is good so far.
