The youngsters hiccup more often than adult dogs, and usually it's at the rate of a hic every two to three seconds. When Mitzi was young, she had double hics every two to three seconds. Bruno hics very rapidly, at the rate of about three a second. It scared me when I first saw it because I thought something is wrong. After a few times of this, I realized it's just hiccups (I think).
Does anyone else's puppy have "abnormal" hiccups?
Maggies seem to be pretty normal except that they jerk her whole body poor thing. And she gets really tired.
Hiccups have got to be one of the most annoying, aggravating things on the planet (for dogs and people). Thankfully, Pebbles doesn't get them often, but when she does they don't last long.
I'm so sad that Baloo has grown out of his hiccups. They were so stinkin' cute.
He would do one every 2-3 seconds or so.

Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
I love the puppy hiccups, too. I think Piper's come about 1 every couple of seconds or so. Yet, even at that, the incidences of hiccups are fewer and further between now.

The first time I saw Cooper hiccup, it freaked me out. I had no idea that they could even get the hiccups and then I did a search on here which made me feel better. It used to happen every few days or so, but now that I think about it, it's been at least a few weeks since I saw any. :-\
Buddy gets hiccups all the time, just out of the blue. His whole body will bounce each time, then they just stop. Weird. Don't think we've ever seen Champ hiccup.

Ruby is the one who used to get the hiccups all of the time. I used to think it was because she ate SO fast...and sucked in a lot of air. She doesnt do it nearly as much as she did when she was younger.
Remy gets the hiccups several times a day...they are so funny! But they seem pretty normal..

Same with Cooper. I would say he doesn't get them as often as he once did but still gets them and just like you say, out of the blue.Originally Posted by AmazonGold
