Ive had my puppy for 4 weeks now. She is 10 weeks old. One day I noticed she had the hiccups, i didnt think anything of it. But it seems like everyday she has them at least three times a day. Sometimes it is repetitive, like one every second.Almost like coughing.
Is this something I should worry about? Should I see a vet?
Hi I agree with contacting your vet as you can never be too careful.. but just thought i'd let you know that both my pups used to get hiccups alot sometimes a couple of times a day and i was advised this is quite normal.
Our pup gets hiccups at least three times a day, every day and he just turned 17 weeks. We asked the vet at our checkup if this was common/normal and he said not to worry at all unless its accompanied by something else such as vomiting, retching, or whining like he's in pain. He normally gets them when he scares himself, gets scared or scolded by our other dog. The vet said most puppies get hiccups and he will most likely grow out of it as he learns things aren't scary.
