Puppy Hiccups

HELP my puppy has hiccups!

This will be the shortest article at this website, but it is a question that I get asked at least once a day. "Help, my puppy has hiccups, is this normal?"

Yes, this is very normal and they happen frequently from 6 weeks - 20 months of age, sometimes later. This happens because your large or giant breed puppy is growing very fast and he is having muscle spasms, that's all. Relax, they will out grow it in time (and can happen to smaller breeds as well).

But, it is important that they are on a food that will allow them to grow slow and even to avoid growth problems such as HOD, OCD or Pano.

I have provided you with Feed Programs for Giant, Large, Med-Small and Toy breeds, at this website.
