Do animals get hiccups?

I’ve had dogs before, but none of them ever exhibited having hiccups. Not that I noticed.

But now we have a Pug puppy (10 weeks old as of 09-29-01).
I swear he has the hiccups. WTF?

Is this normal? None of our other dogs had hiccups. At least not that we noticed.

My dogs hiccup all the time. It’s as harmless as ours. Not horribly common but nothing to find odd.

Zen gets the hiccups on rare occasions, much to my amusement. I could only wish that my cat had the opportunity to suffer such an indignity.

My two Old English Sheepdogs get the hiccups.
Not “all the time”, but often enough to recognize when it happens…
…then we laugh at them.
