Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello,

My puppy is 12 weeks old and his name is Deacon. I just created this account and have not been able to upload any of his pictures yet. He is a beautiful black(with some grey) husky. My question is: he gets hiccups after every meal, and usually after he drinks water, then other random times during the day. Is this normal?

Hi and welcome to the forums! Very Happy

My puppy used to get the hiccups after every meal too, also sometimes at night and when he was in the car. As far as I know it's perfectly normal at his age and will slow down eventually, you could always call your vet and ask if you're really worried. Personally I would only be concerned if he hiccups faster and then started gagging or making other odd noises as that would mean he's about to throw up. Although at the same time my puppy only ever threw up if he was hungry/motion sick/just got some shots and that's also apparently normal at a young age... xD

yes, it is VERY normal for puppies to get hiccups. They usually occur right after eating or drinking because the tend to eat so fast they swallow extra air.

Try slowing down the feeding either by hand or with one of those clever obstacle bowls. It would probably help.

Thank you all for all the input. It was very helpful. I have actually been considering getting one of those obstacle bowls because he eats so fast.
