I noticed it twice and it passed after about 7-8 minutes but I have found nothing online about why its happening and what to do about it. The only thing online is preventative measures when they choke on grain or hay or treats or something. Any suggestions?
My foal had a major choking episode on a piece of apple he was getting for a treat, I rang the vet immediately and he told me to keep him on his feet and keep him walking, which I did, it was such a scary experience, he hasn't had any apple since I can tell you, I have had no more problems with him choking but he is an absolute glutton and would eat all the time if allowed so just a keen eye to make sure he is taking his time and feed little amounts of grain at a time helps also
