My 7 month old V choked yesterday!!!!! I have never been so scared or felt so helpless in my life! We were playing out in the backyard I still don't know what she choked on...my guess would be a stick, but I am not sure. I saw her trying to vomit so I ran to her of course, I feel I need to comfort her when she is getting sick, then I noticed she was really struggling to breathe, I screamed for my husband he came running and we had no idea what to do, I checked her mouth and couldn't find anyting. She became extrmely limp and flopped on her side, rolled on her back and stopped breathing for about 10-20 seconds!!!! I picked her up (probably pretty roughly while on her back to run to the vehicle and get her to the emergency vet, while holding her she made a loud gasp noise and started to breathe, whatever it was had gotten dislodged and she was breathing again! That was so scary!!!! I now have researched the heimlich maneuver on dogs and found its the same as humans, good to know for future disasters!
