I've never noticed it before ever.. but last night i was laying down Nanook looked like either he had the hiccups or ... idk.. he was twitching. I freaked out because my dog a few months ago died (that i adopted) of distemper (got her from the shelter-didnt know she had it) and he looked kinda like this slight twitching... eventualy he stoped and today has been fine.. any idea?shrug

BTW: yes he is current on all his vaccines.

I think I've had hiccups a couple of times, but they subsided very quickly. Good question. Do you twitch with Distemper?

From what I understand, Distemper causes neurological damage which in turn, causes twitching.

As for the hiccups, thanks for asking this! Chim was sleeping on my living room floor this weekend and was squeaking in his sleep along with a twitch.

I was convinced they were hiccups, but I wasn't sure.

At the beginning she twitched with distemper when it first showed symptons.. then it was seizsures.. but he is fine today.. and i only noticed it for a couple of minutes until i passed out.. i was exhausted.. and he didnt show pain.. just kinda sitting there...

whew... probably was just hiccups then.

Chim,

or (seeing i didnt see it) could have been dreaming. Indy used to do it all the time. squeaking and twitching.. it was her dreaming... it was hilarious would do it all the time. she does it occasionally now.. but after 9 yrs i really dont notice it as much as i used to

Cotton used to wake up with hiccups every morning. It was only about a year ago that she stopped getting them frequently. She is now 4 and she still occasionally gets hiccups. It used to kind of scare me becasue she would wake with rapid succession hiccups- hic,hic,hic*breathe* hic, hic, hic*breathe... I am thankful she doesn't do that anymore.
I dont' think Abby has ever had hiccups since joining our family. She was about a year when she became permanently mine.
