Affeldt revealed details of the incident on Instagram on Wednesday. Kodi, the family’s dog, choked on his food Monday. Affeldt said he performed mouth-to-mouth four times to save Kodi. When Kodi started breathing again, Affeldt took him to the emergency vet.

After a few days at the vet, Kodi was reunited with the Affeldt family Wednesday. In a Twitter response to SWX reporter Sam Adams, Affeldt said the entire ordeal was one of the most traumatic times I’ve been through.”
