Does your dog suffer from hiccups?

This is particularly common with puppies and can be uncomfortable.

Where it comes from and how you should react.

Cologne – Hiccups in dogs are often a normal reflex, which can occur very frequently, especially in puppies and younger four-legged friends, and only last for a short time.

Most of the time, the cause is relatively harmless, but if it persists for a long time, this can also indicate a disease.

This tells you whether hiccups are still normal and when you should see a doctor.

Hiccups in the dog: Martin Rütter gives the all-clear

Puppies in particular often get hiccups.

This is because they take in too much air while suckling breast milk.

This expands in the stomach, the diaphragm is irritated and the protective reflex occurs.

The little ones can also get hiccups from too wild romping and playing - because they simply swallow more air by chasing around.

However, eating and drinking too quickly or excitement and stress are also among the causes - this applies to dogs of all ages.

For Martin Rütter, hiccups are often harmless, just like in humans.

Hiccups in the dog: Bitch becomes a TikTok hit

A video that recently went viral on TikTok shows the remedy used by a woman from Brazil.

After her dog Charlene is plagued by a fit of hiccups, the young woman Luisa Marun chooses a more violent method.

She startles her dog by suddenly and unexpectedly letting out a loud "Hah".

Is that necessarily the method of choice?

Questionable!

But Charlene seems to have helped.

This animal is also frightened by its owners.

The hiccups are over, but the dog seems quite irritated by her owner's behavior and immediately tries to calm her down.

However, the users on the net obviously liked the video.

It has now been viewed more than 700,000 times.

However, if the hiccups last longer than 60 minutes, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian.

Even if the dog also shows other symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, heavy breathing and panting or vomiting and diarrhea.

This could be due to certain parasites, worms or other diseases.
