    I had a horrible choking episode years ago when one of my lionheads groomed her partner's mane too enthusiastically and got a huge skein of fur caught up in her throat. She was coughing and drinking water constantly from a bowl so her throat wasn't 100% blocked.

    I didn't realise she'd swallowed fur and thought she was close to expiring with a death rattle, so rushed her to an emergency vet at midnight. £100 later, they had extracted the long clump of fur using dental tools and she was back to normal.

    Very useful advice here.

    It was terrifying! Still so vivid in my mind ten years later.
