      We give Fuzz a dose of Buprenex before we leave. The vet is 40 mins away and he travels poorly. After his first recheck he arrived panting, etc and when we got home, his respiration rate was around 100. So it was suggested to try the Buprenex for the next visit and it works like a charm, totally calm and stress free.

      ((This was meant for the group:))

      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.
