I have a border collie cross (not sure with what) who is now 14 months old. I notice that his heartbeat is very irregular. Other than that, he is very healthy. He was neutered at 6mths. We take him for a 30 minute off leash run every day which he loves. Is this irregular beat normal?

What has the vet said about this?

Thanks for the quick reply. I just noticed it today so thought I would see if it was a normal findiing and if not, I will certainly get to the vet.

Your very welcome.:)

I would get it checked out.Just to be safe.

This way maybe the vet might want you to slow him down on the exercise.Or cut it down.

And I know border collies LOVE to run around.My sister has one.:D

Do you have a pic you can post?.We love seeing pics.;)
