    I've just been told there is a bag of hay waiting for me in reception () so will contact them tomorrow to book an appointment on choking Hopefully your Jaspy will be fine

    very well written
    I never knew about the bunny heimlich till after parsley choked but from reading your description this is what I managed to do instinctively. (albeit probably more rough than needed, but he was critical)
    Thankfully he's had no other problems since being on Rabbit Royale. *crosses fingers*

    Default Choking bunny

    Wish I'd known about this yesterday, we lost our lovely 5 year old mini lop., started to eat her pellets, poor thing choking and as I rushed her to the vets, she fitted in the car and died in my arms. Lots of frothing so I think she aspirated a bit of pellet. So sad :-((, now I have to console her mate .

    Thank you so much,feel v guilty as I'm trained to do it in people but just didn't think about a rabbit, all I could think of was how fragile they are , is it normal to be so teary !!!!
    I've now got to work out whether to get another one for Haribo her mate :-/

    I always worry about Bella choking as she's so greedy and eats so quickly, I always hand-feed her the pellets to prevent any incidents (which she finds really annoying as I make her wait for the next one until she's finished chewing ). I don't quite understand how to do the whole "swinging" thing though?
