Rottweiler pup with hiccups

by Terri Fossum
(Spokane, Washington)

My Rottie seems to constantly get the hiccups for no apparent reason.

I was just wondering what causes them and if it’s ok that he keeps getting them?

Hi Terri
Puppies do get hiccups, some more than others, but it’s nothing to worry about as long as he’s happy and healthy in every other way.

I honestly don’t know exactly what causes them, but I do know that they grow out of them. Adult dogs do not hiccup – strange, but true!

Hope this puts your mind at rest. Good luck with your Rottweiler.

They hiccup because they eat too fast, usually if trained when a little older they slow down and the problem goes away. Enjoy and take care of your pets 🙂

Rottie hiccups NEW
by: Terri Fossum

When I previously asked the question about my Rottie and his hiccups, I never said he was a puppy. In fact, he is a 3yr old. He still gets hiccups, sometimes even when he’s sleeping. I was just wondering if that was ok.

the unveiled facts NEW

yes even adult dogs of all breeds get the hiccups. saying they don’t is like saying once a infant grows into an adult that we don’t get hiccups. Come on people if your going to post advice make sure when you claim the information is a fact that it really is. to all the people who have read this information please understand that its based on an opion not a fact. all dogs regaurdless of age breed or size do for a absolute fact get the hiccups.

My mom used to say that our Rottie was growing every time she had the hiccups. Silly and unscientific for sure, but still what I go with now…HAHA
