My puppy just turned 8 weeks yesterday. Jake however seems to have the hic ups more than the normal amount. Is this normal or what can be done to prevent them ? He eats and drinks water fine, plays alot, and runs alot. Any help would be appreciated.
Daisy had them from day one at 8 weeks old, and had them lots and lots and is now nealy 6 months. It really is just a puppy thing and they will grow out of it, nothing seemed to make Daisy have them, she could just wake up from a deep sleep and have them, they were just intermitent - when ever. As mentioned Daisy is now nearly 6 months and has virtually grown out of them.
Zoey used to get the hicups all the time! She is almost 7 months now and doesn't have them nearly as much. As others have said, it is a puppy thing and will outgrow them. It is kind of cute though when they have them!
