    Jenna has been getting bouts of hiccups since she was a pup. It's not so frequent anymore but she still gets them most days.

    Hi Laura,

    i had a bitch once who got the hiccups regularly. No idea why, though. Anyone?

    Floyd sometimes gets hiccups, well i think that's what they are, he's tummy & chest wobble & he makes this funny sound, he sounds like a gurgling drain - blopppp blopppp bloppp sound

    When my charming teen was a baby she used to suffer colic badly & hiccup heaps, i asked her doc as to why she hiccups a lot & what causes us to hiccup, doc told me that hiccups are a form of wind, either we burp, pass wind or hiccup to expel excess gases etc.

    Wonder if its the same in dogs, do they burp, hiccup to rid their body of excess wind, omg i know which way i would rather Floyd rid himself of wind, hiccup or burp, cause the wind that comes from he's bum is bloody disgustingly smelly

    I know that wind is diet related etc, dont know about what rest of you guys feed your doggys or what their farts smell like, but omg Floyd's roo farts are bloody shocking, not sure if its the roo or just a Stafford thing to have smelly farts, i'm yet to meet a Stafford that don't have smelly farts

    It is cute when one of the pups, lying on it's back has hiccups and still stays asleep.

    My dog has a lethal fart too. So lethal that we all cleared out of the lounge room last night while watching Animal Rescue. It was rank!

    Gawd, we've gone from hiccups to farts pretty fast. Lol.
