Katos_Mom Kato did this a few times when he was younger from 8 weeks old to about 3.5 months old. It was very unnerving to watch him breathing so hard and fast. He is fine though, there was nothing wrong with him when he was doing it. You're not alone!

Vet went really well she said he is in excellent condition and looks like a very content pup (smug face hehe). He weighs 11.8kg (26 lbs). We micro chipped and he had all the rest of his shots....I feel like he is officially ours now that he is tagged ahaa!

SoCal Rebell It concerned me so much 20 years ago I took him to the vet, as everyone said the vet said it was normal for a pup.

rumhelka I don't know why they breath so fast (my puppy did it as well). But that's normal. Even now, being three years old, she can breath fast when she's anxious.

carrieincolorado Once Chevelle kept me up all night laying on my bed panting... panting... omg go to sleep. She has recently decided she likes to sleep in the bathtub. She doesn't pant as much at night anymore, but she still gets hiccups.

Your Finnick shares the same whelpdate as Karlo(Karlo turned 5 this March though!)
Glad to read the "hiccups" pup had the hiccups too often it seemed like....but as you stated...."but seldom do you see older dogs get them." spot on. My girl hasn't had a hiccup in months. pups over the decades were fast breathers as well.
