who can tell you if your pup is going to be ok? youe Vet couldn't tell
you if your pup is going to be ok. how do you know he choked from
something on the floor? maybe you should take him to Vet to be
on the safe side.

I have a 7 year old daughter who left her legos on the floor and went into the room and i heard choking. He hacked it out. But now he looks to hve ruptured his capillaries.

Not a medical professional here, so this is an uneducated opinion.

There is nothing the vet can do now anyways. I would just keep an eye on him and watch for unusual behavior. Glad he got it out or down.

If he starts vomiting, develops an enlarged belly, becomes lethargic, begins salivating profusely or panting hard for no apparent reason I would head to the vet.

i'm thinking go to the Vet now to lessen the chances of any of
that happening and to check his eyes. i'm not a medical professional.
that's why i think going to the Vet is the best choice.

This^^ 100% don't you want to make sure your pup is ok? The choking wouldn't bother me, it would be how you say the eye is now.

I was told by my vet to watch him. I took him in anyway and was told he will be fine after examining his eyes.

Great!! at least you can have a peace of mind now. I do not run to the vet for everything for sure, but when it comes to the eyes and possible obstructions, it never hurts to make sure.
