Bought a puppy for my bro about a week and a half ago. Boxer puppy. Anyways, he took the puppy in yesterday for its first checkup, and the vet said
she could hear a faint murmur (she did not offer a grade) and indicated that she will monitor it when he comes back in in a couple of weeks for the
next series of vaccinations. She said not to worry as they usually go away in puppies. Puppy barely turned 8 weeks this past weekend. I called the
breeder and he said he had all his puppies checked out by a vet and the vet never indicated this to him. He said if anything comes up fatal, or if it
doesn't heal let him know and he would work something out.
The vet my bro took the puppy to also indicated that the puppy looked too lean. I thought the puppy was built just right. So I don't know. Differing
oppions between two vets and a breeder. Either way, my bro loves the dog and is going to keep it...
Obviously, it's not ideal, but there are different grades. I think my vet told me, that if they are going to out grow them, it should be gone by 3
months of age? I don't think if it is gone by then, it does any damage to the puppy. Is it eating normally? Sleeping too much? (Hard to gauge
with a puppy, I know.)
