|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

We took Repede and Bandit to the vet for their check up and vaccinations a couple of weeks ago. While there, the vet said that both of them looked great and she didn't vocalize any concerns with either of them. Well I just happened upon the paperwork today and gave it a closer look and realized that they listed Repede as having a cardiovascular arrythmia, which is new to us and they didn't say anything during the check up other than that he was nervous (he really hates the rectal thermometer
). So now I'm concerned that he has something that might be serious, but I don't know why the vet wouldn't say something to us unless it truly wasn't a concern of hers. Everything else checks out health wise--he's active, eats normally, normal BMs etc.
Should I be pushing to get this explored, or should I just let it be since the vet didn't have any concerns and since he's healthy otherwise?
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This is one of those cases where I'd say "I was looking at the information you gave me about Repede ..." and basically ask her for an explanation.
One of my favourite medical sites for dogs really suggests that it might not be a real problem. It could be nothing more than a very rapid heartbeat from the rectal thermometer.
But I'd still call her .....
