Overly Excited or Anxious Behavior
A common cause of hiccups is when your pup becomes stressed or even overly excited. Along with fervent playing comes rapid or irregular breathing.
Eating or Drinking Too Fast
Drinking or eating too fast usually leads to swallowing air along with their meal and unwanted hiccupping.
Some even believe that dogs hiccup when they’re trying to relieve an upset stomach. As such, it’s important to invest in good quality dog food for your pup to aid in healthy digestion.
Regulate Their Breathing
A good way to do this is to get your pup on their back for a good old-fashioned belly rub. Some light exercise might also do the trick.
