Here are two way of checking a pulse on your dog. You can feel for a heart beat the heart is located
closer to the left side of the dog under the armpit and above the elbow. The femoral pulse is the strongest and easiest pulse to find. Just feel where the thigh and the dog's body meet. Pulse rate varies from about 60 to 180 beats a minute, but it really depends on the dog's size, activity and health. Small dogs and puppies heart rates are faster then bigger dogs. Count how many beats in 15 seconds then multiply be 4, this will give you your dogs pulse rate per minute.
