My 4 month old Pug once in a long while looks to be getting hiccups. And like some dogs he doesn't make the hiccup sound from his throat as some other dogs/humans do. Just the chest expansion/relaxing/expand/relax...then it goes away.

First time I saw it I was concerned. Fearing the worst but otherwise he's been very healthy. Tons of energy when awake. Good appetite. Looks terrific otherwise.

And they don't look like "reverse hiccups".

Has your puppies or older dogs had it? My 2 previous dogs never did.

Pax get hiccups once in a blue moon...

...and just like humans I can startle him with a quick jolt and "BOO!" and they are gone. May be a bit mean but it works!

Puppies are notorious for getting hiccups. It has mainly to do with how much air they gulp while they eat and drink. He will outgrow it. :)
