This is a sound that occurs when there is a structural abnormality in the heart.  This causes the blood flow to be abnormal.  There are multiple causes of heart murmurs, from birth defects to disease to aging.  Some of these are no cause for alarm and some are very serious.  A veterinarian should be consulted for proper understanding of what the specific sound of your dog’s heart means.
