My Hailee seems to get the hiccups alot, not sure why but i was currious if anyone else's gets them? and if anyone knows how to help them get rid of them when they do? well thank you in advance for the help
Don't know how to make them go away. Henry gets them less now that he's older, but they used to be pretty bad when he was a little feller. :wink:
Now he get's them if he eats too fast or is startled awake. I don't think they're a problem. Sometimes I rub his tummy and throat to get him to calm down. They usually only last about a minute.
Same here, Sophie had them all the time as a baby - but she has basically grown out of them. On a side note and don't know if it applies to dogs, but my hubby had them in the hospital after his heart attack and they lasted for 3 days. They were horrible and finally had to knock him out cold to get rid of them. His cardiologist said they were caused from lack of oxygen to the body and being fed through a tube. Whenever he had another attack of hiccups, we had to sit him upright in bed and have him breath deeply so that he could get as much oxygen into his lungs as possible. Strange, but it worked to get rid of them.
