Default Scary moment!!

Today I gave Titan a treat and while chewing he did a pop. This resulted in him starting to choke on the food and doing a gagging movement. He did this two times and stopped. I watched over him for a hour and he seemed okay after gagging one more time. Is there anything I should look for or is he okay now?
Thank you!

Bumping this up. I'm not sure what the proper after-care is for a choking episode but it would be good to know. Hopefully someone here has experience with that.

He seems to be doing just fine now.

I got a little nervous last night because I think my girl might have brieftly choked on her food-- she was eating and then stopped after swallowing and then gave two short, forceful hisses like she was trying to force airflow. It seemed to help her and she went back to eating, but it made me nervous that if she ever choked on her food I would either not be in the room to know, or would not know how to handle it!

My hedgehog Molly came with a variety of medical issues- one was poor teeth. At the end her food would get caught in the roof of her mouth and I would have to take a Q-Tip and take it out. She made a gagging motion when that happened.
If it keeps happening maybe check the size of the kibble they are eating- it may need to be crushed into smaller bits.
