I can actually see his heart beat

wasn't sure where to post this...never noticed this before on any other dog/pet I've had. When Bogart is laying on his side, I can actually see the movement of his heart beating. Is this normal? He is 4 1/2 months old.

I can see both my dogs hearts beat when they are still and lying down on their sides. Pretty strange, huh?

I never noticed it before, maybe it was a stupid question, ha ha , glad to hear its normal

If you are seeing a more rapid beat, I would check with your vet -
Being able to see the heart beat is easier than taking their pulse. You can kind of keep track of your dogs heart rate.
