Keep an eye on him but he should be fine.

I feed turkey necks but if they are fat in circumference i usually smash them with a hammer.

Yes, this happens often with raw feeding. They try to swallow too much I suppose & gag & then "re-chew" it again. If you've ever watched video of wolves eating in captivity (or seen it live) they eat the same way. I just keep an eye on them, as you obviously do, when eating things like turkey necks/bully-sticks - anything like that. Smashing it up with a hammer sounds like a great idea too if you're still freaked out.

I think from now on with the bigger necks i will smash up the big side for future after this scare.. Im sure it got stuck cutting off his airway thats why he panicked and almost collapsed.. Silly gulper..

Thanks for the tips ad hammer idea

Dawn, I wouldnt hammer or smash it at all. You dont want to create sharp pieces of bone. This is how dogs learn how to eat. I bet the next time you give him a neck he will chew it more thoroughly!

Oh how scary! Have you been feeding turkey necks for a long time? I'm so afraid to try them for this reason.

I've been feeding turkey necks for 5 months he's been good chewing his food everytime and usually if food is stuck he regurgitates it up and eats it again this time it got stuck but just slid down his throat 3 mins after the fact he scared the shit outta us..Scared him (us) since then he chews his food allot more and he's fine!!
