first of all if you not happy with your answer as you seem not ot be my advise?


change vets some are more concerned about making money than the pets healthy it seems

second i suspect their heartbeat is different than ours and what seems to be faster might be normal

have you checked it if its not the same during the day?

they are NOT like us in the phisichal sense but do get it checked it you are that worried with a second opinion

and here is the link that maybe be able to help in many ways I think

Maybe your baby is just experiencing some REM sleep? Is the pup twitching too? Are the eyes moving under the eyelids? Mine sometimes look like they are chasing in their sleep.

I hope the best for your baby. Let us know how it goes.

my vet told me that sprite has a faster heartbeat than normal. but that i shouldnt worry about it. that its a "just to know" fact so if a vet tells me that sprite needs meds or something---that she shouldnt need it. something like that.

Well the x-rays came back fine but he is still have the excessive heart rate at night while he is sleeping and he acts like he can't get a good breath like he makes these yawning faces i called the doctor this morning and they are setting up an eco cardiagrapham for Maxi , i mean he does this only at night and it is very upsetting to me i feel like he is uncomfortable
so i will do this if only for peace of mind

how is max? have you had the results back yet?

sometimes I think benji is having a heart attack
at night as he even barks in his sleep twists and eyes roll I just let him be he is having either a nightmare or dream either way he is fine all the same for that so try not to worry too much they are tough litlle things :ph34r:
