Each and everytime after he eats, he hiccups. Is he eating too fast? or is this nomal puppy behavior?

Thanks for your responses.

Buster also gets hiccups after eating. It could be a meal or just a milkbone. He's a 4 1/2 month old Saint Bernard.

Its normal for puppies and some breeds to get hiccups regularly. Both of our dogs still occasionally get hiccups. Puppies tend to eat quickly and a consequence of that is swallowing a lot of air. Swallowing air can irritate the diaphragm and that is one of the causes of hiccups. So I would say its nothing to be concerned over and I would guess it gets better with time.

Levi started getting hiccups a couple weeks after we got her (2 1/2 months old). She used to hiccup often, but now hardly does. She still gets occasional hiccups (she's around 5 months now). Our vet told us it's normal for puppies to get the hiccups.
