Since the day we've got him (it's been almost a month), our lab puppy Rocky hiccups EVERY time he gets up from sleeping/napping. It goes away relatively quickly, but since it's so consistent I'm a little worried. Could something that I'm not seeing be going on?

heh weird. how old is he and is he otherwise in good health?

my 1st thought would be maybe just some congenital abnormality like an elongated palate or something.

or maybe if he had an infection or kennel cough when he was really young it scarred his tissue a little? dunno just guessin

If I'm remembering correctly, frequent hiccups are very common in young dogs and they grow out of it naturally. But a quick call to your vet should ease your mind.

Hey, this happened to my dog all the time. Dog Hiccups is normal and good for puppies, BUT if it happens a lot a lot, you may want to consider getting him checked out. Also, using lower quality foods that are high in grain can cause a puppy to hiccup more...
