    Default Hiccups in Puppy

    Bear has a hiccup spell (minutes long) at least once a day, every day. Is it similar to human babies/toddlers that it is a sign of him growing quickly or is it something I should be concerned about? He will be 15 weeks old on Friday.

    Dozer (my 11 week old) has had them regularly since we got him a few weeks ago too, it's normal from what I read. Here is one informative article - Why does my pup get dog hiccups? - Dog health, Dog training, Dog adoption - Dog's Best Life

    First, LOVE the name Bear!! Joey went through the same thing, she is just over 1 year old now. When she was a baby she would get an episode of hiccups when she was tired. We figured out after a few episodes that she wanted sleep....quiet time. She does not get them anymore but when she was young it signaled a nap coming up
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Our Basset puppy did the same so I don't think there's a need for worry unless it seems to really bother him

    Extremely normal... I always heard the saying that means they are growing, skin kids too... Lol
