dog chokes?
i have an old daxie with heart problems. just lately i have started giving him some pellets as an add on to his normal raw food diet and i have noticed that he chokes on them it seems. is this from his heart? he also seems to eat like a really greedy dog now and gulps his food down, worse than before.he does not cough at all but just seems to choke a bit.

I think you have to take him back for the vet to have another look. It sounds like it might be cushings disease.
