Unusual view of my dog

About 3 years ago one of my dogs (a long-haired Chihuahua) was diagnosed with a "Heart Murmur" - meaning there was a problem with a valve in her heart.

 

When she was originally seen by the vet they took an x-ray of her as part of the diagnosis procedure. The vet very kindly gave me a copy of the X-ray as I'm interested in such things. I have no idea what we are seeing here, other than in very basic terms, but perhaps it is interesting to you too?

 

What IS clearly visible in the picture (even to me) is a part of her collar and the microchip under the skin of her neck.

 

*** Teko is now 12 years old. I'm delighted to say that she is happy, well, sometimes noisy and as energetic as always. All she needs is 1/2 a pill each day to help her, and long may that continue.
