National Pet Choking Prevention Day THIS Thursday-June 22, 2023

Renowned Veterinarian Dr. Judy Morgan Teams Up with Safety Experts Bow Wow Labs to Champion a Nationally-Registered Day to Raise Awareness and Educate Pet-Parents on Keeping Pets Safe and Helping Prevent Tragedy.

Tragically, there are over 200,000 pet choking incidents in the United States every year, not only resulting in millions of dollars in veterinarian fees, but more importantly, also costing pet-parents and veterinary professionals an immeasurable and irreversible physical and emotional toll.

Inspired to bring national attention to how scary, how common and how avoidable pet choking really is, Bow Wow Labs, Inc. is championing this education and awareness campaign for pet safety by officially registering June 22nd as National Pet Choking Prevention Day.

shares the shocking statistics of how common (and avoidable) pet choking is, but most importantly, it shares the simple yet important ways we can come together to help eliminate common risks from toys, chews, and more for our beloved pets.

Sadly, pet choking tragedies (or near-tragedies when the pet does survive) cause panic, fear and anxiety to pets, pet-parents and veterinary professionals worldwide that try to save their lives, but retailers and pet-parents alike must come together to educate and promote prevention.

As we approach, National Pet Choking Prevention Day, here are 5 everyday choking hazards for both dogs and cats that are commonly found in and around the home.


  • String
  • Window Blind Cords
  • Fishing Pole/Wand Type Toys
  • Plastic
  • Rubber Bands & Hair Ties


  • Balls
  • Sticks
  • Chew Toys
  • Bully Sticks, Treats & Long Term Chews

At the forefront of prevention is an affordable, simple to use product that can save more pets lives–the Bow Wow Buddy safety device is life-protecting, veterinarian-approved and dog-loved. Each Bow Wow Buddy device tightly secures bully sticks and other long-term chews, helping to prevent dogs from choking on that last small bit while at the same time reducing the potential risk of obstruction on the tail-end of the treat.
