    General Dog Discussion
    I read somewhere that when a dog pants, the breath is synchronized with the heartbeat. Is this true? Can you give me link to read more about it? I want to figure out the relationship between systolic/diastolic phases to inhale/exhale. Please email me -- [email protected]
