Teaming up with renowned veterinarian and spokesperson Dr. Judy Morgan, National Pet Choking Prevention Day will be recognized for the first time on June 22, 2023 with a simple mission of “Target: Zero. Spreading education to pet parents all across the globe about the everyday pet choking hazards around your home.” The National Pet Choking Prevention Day campaign 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.

As we approach, National Pet Choking Prevention Day, here are five 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 and Long Term Chews
  • Food Packaging & Trash

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.
