FOUND THE ANSWER-Well sort of
Q: I have a 12 week old shih tzu who has frequent cases of the
hiccups. They don't last long... sometimes they are silent and I can see his body shake and other times they are lound and disturb him. Should I be alarmed??
A: Hello Joanne,
Hiccups are common in little puppies - they are no cause of concern. Most puppies will outgrow the severe hiccups by 6 months.

I was also readin that dogs get hiccups,cause they ingest too much air..which would account for hannah getting em while shes eating and playing hard...
