He just heard it thru the stethoscope and he did not say much about it and daid it is really nothing to worry about (no grade or anything) but being a first-time doggie mommma--or a momma in general--I tend to worry..
I did google and, as others have said, the grades deterine how serious they are, and the vet did not ask for/suggest anything regarding what abnormal rhythms he may have heard..
It does explain Frankie's tendency to have his heart beat super-fast with fairly light exercise (he is not overweight by any means, he is exactly 11 lbs, the vet said that is where he sjould be)..and then he does pant a lot for no apparent reason (he gets plenty of water, and we constantly krp hos bowl filled) and he seems to pant at night..
It probably is nothing to be concerned about, but when it comes to any abnormalities, some of us doggie mamas get a little overly cautious..
The vet apparently did not even write the 'finding' on Frankie's chart, because as I was leaving, I asked the receptionist, who was holding Frankie's charts, what exactly Frankie had, and she looked, and did no find anything written down..
So I guess it is a very minor thing..for now..?
I may seek another vet. I know this one is good, though, but you feel 'rushed' when you go there(waiting room is always packed) and his staff is usually no very helpful in offering answers..
Thanks again, everyone!!!
