Edson just made these hiccups noises only for a few seconds. I have NEVER heard any sounds before so this was a first. He was just sitting on his towel and started hiccuping and then went off to drink some water and eat some hay. I assume it was nothing more than hiccups right?
yes little Laith had hiccups twice. scared me at first. I would see a jump and a jump they hiccup so fast. then it went away when eh had them another day I wasn't so worried it was funny to watch poor guy.
rabbits hiccup especially if they drink to quickly. if it continues for more than an hour that can be very very serious. it develops a large gas ball inside the rabbit which causes pressure and pain. you can help with that and avoid a costly vet bill by giving a dose of baby gas-x (available in any pharmacy). it will help break up the gas ball so the rabbit can pass. but if your hiccuping is not more than an hour or so you should be ok. for an x-ray of a hiccup gas ball you can see one from my rabbits on my website

Don't make a big deal out of it as long as it takes a minute or two. It's just normal
But yes, my Buttercup hiccups regularly.
