There normal right? Spartacus is 14 weeks old and has had 2 little hiccup bouts. Its adorable and I think normal but I thought I read somewhere that they could be an indicator of potential heart problems? Or do I just have puppy OCD?:rolleyes:

It's normal. Puppies get the hiccups a lot through 6 months of age. It's leftover amniotic fluid in the lungs that they are still trying to expel. Wolfie used to hiccup all the time. I haven't heard him get the hiccups in ages. He just burps all the time now.

Thanks for posting this topic. I have a 13 week old with the same thing but she gets the hiccups all the time. I was worried too but now I know it is fine and she will grow out of it.
