Question about Choking

Dont worry, i dont have a hedgehog, and nobody is choking.
But if a hedgehog is choking, is there a Heimlich maneuver for them?

hold them in your palms, face pointing away, lift them up and carefully lower your arms rapidly while holding on. Do this a few times to try and help them. The centrifugal force (i know it doesn't technically exist) will help the hedgehog to clear its throat.

I think that is what i remember reading. I could be wrong.
