View Full Version : Dog Hiccups
Can anyone tell me how to cure puppy hiccups? My new pup seems to get them a fair bit and I can't find anything online that tells me what to do :idea:
Taken from Purina ONE website :
Puppies quite commonly get hiccups. When puppies eat and drink, they tend to ingest large quantities of air. Air, as it enters the esophagus and stomach, tends to trigger the hiccupping response. The authors have never seen an instance where hiccups was the result of any disease disorder. Consider hiccupping normal and common in dogs, and especially in puppies less than eight months of age.
There is really nothing you can do for a puppy with hiccups, other than have him rest quietly until the hiccups are gone. If you find certain circumstances such as extreme excitement seem to trigger the hiccups, you can try to avoid those types of situations.
It's nothing to worry yourself over. My pup is 6.5 months old now and still gets the hiccups.
Thanks Karnif00l :D
thanks for this info.... my puppies both get so excited and i have just noticed that little shiraz its getting them more often too...
I think thats because the older they get the more exercise and excited they get!!!
cute little babies!
