    Default Hiccup question

    Guinness always gets hiccups sometimes after he eats and sometimes out of no where...they last a few minutes but they are pretty forceful. Is this normal? any suggestions? It doesn't seem to bother him though

    I know my boys have had their share of hiccups also. I wonder if the puppies are similar to 2 leggers? My newborn gets the hiccups, sneezes and coughs randomly and the dr said all 3 are normal for new babies due to their nervous system not being developed completely. I bet the puppies are similar and once he gets bigger he wont get them so much.

    Jozi gets them without fail. I just always
    thought it was a normal thing for Bulldogs.

    Hiccups are usually caused by eating too fast or gulping down water, and it is very common in puppies. A slow feed bowl may help relieve the bouts of hiccups to some degree, and is overall a good thing to use with your bulldog anyway, to slow down eating and also help in the prevention of bloat.

    Stig sometimes gets hiccups too. But it goes away after a couple of minutes or so. It doesn't seem to bother him as well.
