Default Awwwwss

A few weeks ago when Pipper was eating, he swallowed his food whole and choked a bit on it and did a lot of snorting. He was so scared. Ever since then, he acts like he is afraid to eat. He wants it so bad and will go up to his dish to eat and eat a mouthful and then goes and just sits there looking scared. He will eventually give in and eat. He is so afraid he is going to choke and it breaks my heart to see him scared like this. Do you think this paranoia to eat will go away or what can I do to help him get over this.

The same I'm not sure but he might learn that if he eats slower it won't happen and then Gradually gain confidence. Sending hugsxx

There are special bowls that make them eat slower. Right now I would soak his food in water so that it's soft until he realizes that it's going to be OK to eat.
