My Rotweiller is 10 not at all heavy he does have a heart murmur but that seems fine is this normal with aging he doesn't do this getting up just grunts when laying down

Jaxey used to do that. I think it's just old bones that come a long with aging. They get a little stiff and sore. I gave her a cushy bed. She still did it, but I felt better that she had a soft bed to lie on.

Have you ever after a long hard day of work sat down finally and let out a sigh. This would be about the same thing. I do not think thishas anything to do with the heart murmur.
