What is the normal heart rate for a Spaniel? We just got a 6

Customer Question

What is the normal heart rate for a King Charles Spaniel? We just got a 6 year old who has a very fast, loud breathing - sounding like she is snoring. Her heart rate is 128. I tried to hear her lungs, but there was the "snoring noise."

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Is the snoring a new feature for Jazz? Is she making this increased noise when awake?

Any coughing, sneezing or congestion?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count your dog’s breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Thanks for your response, but I called my vet & took her in today. Thanks.
