Learning to perform the Heimlich maneuver on a cat or small dog is a helpful skill for emergencies. Perform the Heimlich maneuver on a small pet with tips from a veterinarian in this free video on pet care. Expert: Dr. James Talbott Bio: Dr. James R. Talbott is a staff veterinarian at Belle Forest Animal Hospital and Kennel in Nashville, Tenn. Filmmaker: Dimitri LaBarge
I did a Heimlich-like maneuver on my cat last night. The cat was very hungry and eating food in the bathroom near the toilet (which was where I was sitting… no more detail on that). The cat began sticking his tongue out very far and moving it around and pawing at his mouth with both front paws. I did not immediately see food nor did I hear breath sounds, so I turned the cat upside down and pushed a few times on the upper stomach in a direction towards the diaphragm.
For the person who asked if you can stick your finger in the cats mouth to grab the item causing them to choke: I’m sure, just like for people, a medical profesional would advise against that. When you try to reach in and grab the choke item you will most likely push it deeper into the trachia. Also, the animal’s gag reflex will already be engaged by the item they are choking on.
cant you open their mouth and stick your finger in to see if you can grab it or cause a gag reflex to dispose the thing the animal is choking on?
I’m so sorry 🙁 Well now you have a chance to save another animal with this small mistake
my cat would’ve made it if it wasn’t for the advertisement
Thank you so much, my little puppy was choking on a small glump of food lodged in her throat, she was trying to puke it up but it was stuck. I quickly came to this video and re-watched it, preformed what you had suggested and I saved her life. She coughed it out. Thank you very much.
Can you put up a video where you do it on a manikin, please? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
SOMEBODY HELP ME IM GETTING A KITTEN TODAY AND HOW LONG CAN U WAIT TO GET IT DE WORMED?
Thank you so much this will come to use one day!! (Hopefully not but I like to be prepared when it comes to my dog.) But can anyone answer if its appropriet to call the vet after you have done this method? (Im 13 don’t judge) Lol Thanks
If there wasnt an ad for this video my dog wouldnt have died 5 minutes ago.
1:18 “I am not okay with this” XD
Thanks for the helpful info!!
This video is lousy! By the time this studdering dude gets to the point someone’s cat would be dead!! Good thing the other videos realize most ppl look these videos up when the choking begins or their animal has swallowed something ..Worst yet, we have to wait for a useless ad to finish before this video even begins playing, smfh ..useless
That’s what my sisters cat is doing. I was so scared too…
Do U know Squidward Sawchuck (Cindy’s cat)? I wonder if he ever chokes. It’s like performing the Heimlich Maneuver on people.
hey both my cats sometimes sort of heave and wretch for about 20 seconds sounds sort of like huh… heh… heh… huh huh. it scares the hell out of me but they both always stop and are fine a moment later (never seen any other cats do it) im thinking it has something to do with a hairball but nothing ever comes out. could anyone tell me what this is just so i dont hav 2 worry
yes that means he is not happy
so if his gums are blue, that means he is choking?
It’s not funny when your beloved pet is in serious distress. I saved my 1 year old puppy with this method. He was chocking on a thorny rose branch. I at the time didn’t even know if you could Heimlich a dog, I figured it was his only chance. Thank God it worked.

Thanks for the vid, my dog chocked tonight but he got it out by himself. So just knowing how to do this makes me feel better.
go to a vet
Dude…don’t feed the trolls..
I’d recommend this over sticking tape and a pencil down an animals throat like a different video had….and my God never NEVER give your animal any kind of cooked BONES to chew on!!
It’s okay now, she’s dead now.
you’re sick why the fuck would you feed your cat your own shit, thats disgusting, get a plumber in you dumbass!
I have a question, I broke my toilet (i live in the city) and i have been feeding my cat my feces. It’s been 3 days and my cat is now coughing up orangish liquid. please help!
I only looked this up, because I just fed a pretzyl rod to my dog, and I suddenly got paranoid that he’d choke XD lol
Thank you, potentially very useful information. Just about the same as on humans, glad I know this in case one of my animal buddies should ever need it.
Never know when this will come in handy but at least I’m prepared. Thank you.
Wow!!! It’s always wonderful to hear from you.
