At 3 years, Ranger still gets the hiccups almost every day. I hope it's not something bad! The first time I head him hiccup, I thought he was getting ready to throw up...poor guy had no idea why i scared him off the bed and chased him outside. I don't remember my old border collie ever having the hiccups in the 14 years we had him.
The funny thing is that Ranger is so intrigued when my little foster guy has the hiccups! He runs over to Scout and pokes poor Scout with his nose, trying to figure out what's going on. Then when Ranger has the hiccups, Scout runs over and does the same thing!
Thanks - I agree it's real cute. But I guess as a new parent I'm just worried it'll affect something else (respitory, heart, etc). Glad to know it's normal with your dogs too... Was anyone able to get a vet diagnosis?
Just like we get hiccups, dogs can get them too. It's just an indication that they've swallowed food with their meals. Ori had them everyday when he was a pup, and Jasmine's are only just smoothing out now and coming a little less frequently. They'll still occasionally have them when grown though. It's certainly nothing to worry about.
