My 12yr old Labradoodle recently had GOLPP surgery and the doctor suggested moving to a large kibble to help avoid any future regurgitation or aspiration pneumonia. I want to find a good wuality food but in a larger size. Any suggestions?
You increase choking factor with larger pieces of food. Instead, create a 45 degree angle when eating & drinking. If you have stairs, that’s as many steps between front/ bag legs of size dog comfortably, keeping throat from being horizontal. No stairs, use a chair, hold the bowl. The right angle is key. Grind up kibble or mix in wet food for less (open mouth) chewing. Also fing the medication to reduce larynx swelling.
