One of the main ways to check that an animal is healthy is to check its vital signs. These include the core temperature, respiration rate and pulse rate. If any of these are not within their normal range there is cause for concern and treatment should be sought. We strongly recommend that you seek veterinary advice in such cases, as it may be life-threatening.
