Hiccups after eating

My 12 week old does not seem to eat as much as she should be. Maybe 1 cup of kibble at a time. She ate that much at 8 weeks. Vet said not to worry. She weighs 23 lbs. we did notice she gets hiccups after eating. She is not inhaling her food so it is not related to that. Should we be concerned?

My pup's coming on 11 weeks and he's been having hiccups at least once a day for the past week and a half before eating, after eating, in the middle of the night. I think it's just a puppy thing.

Our pup is 9 weeks old and is a finicky eater too. Most times we have to coax him into finishing just a 1/2 a cup of kibble. The vet recommended sprinkling a little parmesean cheese on top which helped. And hes gets the hiccups after just about everything he eats.

Fezzik jog his memory

My pup always got hiccups as well. We added warm water to his food and got him a kong food bowl so he had to work a little for his food and slowed him down. He quit having hiccups shortly after

Puppies get hiccups. Too much air intake or something like that - try spreading it out on the floor so she eats slower.
