RABBIT HEIMLICHE MANEUVER!

You never know when your rabbit may have an emergency, so it’s good to always be prepared.

I am sharing a linking from “The Bunny Guy” on how to perform a proper heimliche maneuver which can be used if your rabbit is ever found chocking. Signs of chocking include:

1. The rabbit pointing it’s nose to the air
2. Gurgling noises
3. Labored breathing
4. Turning blue
5. Pawing at the noise/mouth area
And, in my personal experience, increased mucus.

This really works and it helped me save a foster’s life. But I wasted valuable time looking up this information before I proceeded to try and help clear his airways.

Memorize this now, and give your bun the best chance in surviving an emergency situation.
