Coughing on tennis ball threads?

4806 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  danielai
My dog, Bailey, loves playing with tennis balls but she also likes chewing them. She tries to rip out the "furs" and ends up eating them. Then, because it gets stuck in her throat,he ends up coughing. Should I not give her any more tennis balls? I'm afraid she might really choke on it someday...

Best to talk to your vet. Tennis balls can be risky in several ways, choking and foreign body being one. Vets also often see a lot of damage to the teeth of dogs who chew tennis balls, so you should ask for a recommendation that is best for his health.
