I get the hicups all the time. Mom is worried that it means I am getting too much air and is a sign of bloat. Is it? Do you pups get hicups frequently? Is it dangerous?

My head- rattles...

When Diesel was little he got hiccups all the time. ALL the time. He eventually outgrew it. I wouldnt worry about it.

Elvis gets hicups all the time. I've checked with my vet & other Dane owners and everyone says it's perfectly normal.

Kacie - Is it nap time- yet?

I get hiccups 1-2 times every single day. My breeder says that it's because of the deep-chest growth, and not to worry about it. My mom was scared of bloat too...but no worries!

When I was a pup I had them constantly..but I outgrew it. Mommy and Daddy were scared too (they are first time dane owners too) but the vet assured them it is okay. Dont worry

I used to get hicups yes my mom worried but only because i had a very ruff start in life and would of died if it wasnt for my mom and my vet Dr Jerry Henke and the special vet guy Dr bush who my vet sent me to for help.
