Default Seeing their heartbeat?

How many of you can see your dogs heart beating when they are laying on their sides? Is there anything wrong?

Both Sabo and Kia have easily visibility when they lay on their sides. I can see pulsation under the ribs right tucked near the "arm pit".

I know in skinny humans you can see aortic pulsation in the umbilical region...is it the same with dogs?

I see my dog's as well. Especially when they are really relaxed...I guess because they are laying on their sides.

First time I saw it, I freaked out, too. It didn't look like the classic "lub, dub". But my pup is fine.

I think I posted something about Dexter's heartbeat months back. It really freaked me out too and I thoughtmaybe he had some heart issues because it would be 3 times and then two. I took him to the vet and he said it was normal.
