Thank you all for the support. My pumpkin, aka ppants, pants, pman ect.
lol, he is 6 years old and he looks like an average orange tabby. My husband
found him on the side of a house while he was at work. He was about 2 months
old then. He has a mini tennis ball which is his favorite to chance around
but is a bit bored cause no one will throw it to him right now. :/
Today he seems like himself. I think the stress from the doctors caused
the fainting episode. As for the medicine the doctor was on the fence about
1x a day or 2x a day. He said with his weight he can get away with 1x. He's
only 14.4 lbs so I don't know. He goes for a follow up in 2 weeks to make
sure hes doing well on the medicine.
Question what does everyone do for the car ride to the vet, PPants was
breathing heavy and panting a lot. I think its just stress of being
transferred but im just being a worried mommy. At home his breathing seems fine I do
notice somewhere around 5 breaths he'll do a double in take but that's it.
Otherwise its steady. Other info about him is that his heart murmur is a
grade 4/6 that's what it said on the summary report from my vet.
