My Siberian Husky inhales his/her food, occassionally choking. What can I do about it?
Most Siberian Huskies eat with vigor. This is a good thing, as likely you’ll never have to deal with a picky eater. However, what you describe is potentially dangerous, and obviously upsetting to you. I have found two methods work best for this situation. 1 – Add a small amount of water to the dog’s dry kibble or 2 – place a non-edible object in their dish (i.e.: a stone bigger than the size of your fist. The first makes them slow down in order to drink the “juice” that is made from their food, the latter forces them to “eat around” the object. Both have worked well, but I find adding water to be a sufficient deterant for an aggressive eater.
