This is exactly why I have been hesitant to feed prey model raw for the last while, because of the choking hazards. I fed them fresh prey model stuff over the weekend and I did keep a close eye.. I watched my little Shiba basically swallow part of a turkey neck and a game hen thigh whole, he doesn't chew very much and it kinda scares me but he gulps it down with ease. Thumper on the other hand, he crunches and gnaws a bit before swallowing. I'm still going to feed their premade commercial raw diet on a regular basis, it has the meat, bones and organs and its safe for them to eat, but on the weekends when I dont have time constraints and can sit and watch them eat, they get fresh prey model. I haven't had any choking hazards yet so lets hope it stays that way..
