Default Hiccup

Hello, our Westie Archie is now 13 weeks old and seems to get hickup very often and we are not too sure what might cause it and if this is normal... it happens after he has eaten or drunk sometimes, but again sometimes when he has not done so....really random but quite frequent.

Any experience with this and what we could do to help him?

Thanks a lot and here are some more recent pictures, he is growing so fast!

Aw, gorgeous pup! Both my puppies used to get hiccups a lot, it seems it's perfectly normal and you usually find they start to grow out of it and don't really do it anymore by about 5 months if I remember rightly.

I have never had a problem with hiccups distressing my puppies so unless it is upsetting yours I wouldn't worry about it - it's like human hiccups, there's quite often nothing you can do, they just stop on their own.

Hope this helps

Yep. Hiccups are common in pups, and they do generally grow out of it, usually by 20 weeks.

I myself get hiccups when I eat too fast, I think the cause also has to do with the inhalation of a little too much air as I take a bite, lol

Perhaps Archie (which is absolutely adorable ) is eating/drinking his food too fast, and as a result he gets the hiccups.

I hold my breath for 15-20 seconds, and that gets rid of them for me...hmm, you think Archie would try that one? lol

Well, of course he has hiccups - you're getting him drunk!

Just kidding of course. Bay had hiccups a good bit as a pup and had them only now and then as an adult. I've only seen Ming get them once.

I get them a lot!

Actually - I do get them a lot but it's due to a medication I take.

Otherwise, they're common and I'd not worry at all unless he gets them constantly for several hours. I've never heard of that happening in dogs, only humans.

Archie is such a cute little dude! Great to see a new pic to see how he's grown. I'm sure he'll grow out of those hiccups ... most pups are over it before you realize they've quit doing it.

Colbi used to have hiccups all the time when she was a puppy. Actually, she still gets them on rare occassions.

What a cute pup Hiccups are so common in pups. Max used to practically inhale his grub and then spent the next hour with horrendous hiccups. They grow out of it when they get older. They're like human babies really- they hiccup all the time after a feed!!! Good luck and enjoy you pup xxx.
