Respiratory Rate

21 Feb 2019

One of the monitoring checks our vets and nurses undertaken regularly in practice is respiratory rate (breathing rate). Knowing what is normal for your pet makes it easier to identify when something may not be quite right, and breathing rate is one of these identifiers.
But how do you know what is a normal breathing rate for your dog? The only way to find out is to learn how to measure their respiratory rate and 15. Geriatric dog photorecord it, and we’ve found a great little app that can help with this.
Please do be advised that this is not a diagnostic tool or an indication of the overall health of your dog, just an aid to help owners understand and learn what is normal for their own dog. If you have any concerns about your dog’s health, contact your vet.
