|That brings back memories! Buckeye used to get hiccups everyday when he was a young puppy. It was worrying, but when he slowed down as he got older, it became cute to watch! He would be sleeping and you would suddenly hear him hiccup. It was startling to both him and us! He was a silly puppy.
Puppies get hiccups for several different reasons. If they are playing, they can breathe in too much air, making them hiccup because of the sudden air consumption. If you notice hiccups after eating or drinking, it could be because they ate or drank too fast.
Either way, its completely harmless when your puppy gets a case of the hiccups! As they start maturing, you'll notice that the hiccuping will become less and less often. I rarely see my two adult dogs get the hiccups, but I do remember when Buckeye got them ALL THE TIME as a puppy. Its nothing to worry about!
