      Hi all,

      We first posted a week or two ago, gnat had been diagnosed with heart
      disease only 10 days prior to our scheduled move to CA. We decided to
      drive rather than fly, and in a fit of overcompensation, rented a
      motorhome to complete the trip. Our reasoning was that Gnat would be
      happier and more comfortable in the larger space. Well, to make a long
      story short, it wasn't the most comfortable trip, but Gnat seemed to
      weather it okay. The 3000 bumpy miles took 5 days of driving. She
      seems awfully tired now that we've got to our new destination, and our
      furniture still hasn't arrived, so things are a little strange
      (although all the favourite blankies came with us).

      I guess we need to get her to a new doc asap. Currently, she's just on
      6.25 mg Lasix daily to keep down the fluid build-up. She's also CRF,
      but every time I try and give her even a small amount of fluids, she
      starts wheezing again.

      I know we're at one of the centres of feline health here in Davis, CA,
      but can anyone recommend a really good, sensitive vet? Should I just
      take her to the UCD vet hospital. Any thoughts?

      Cheers,
      Kim, Gnat & Wiggy

              Well, I live in SoCal and don't know the specifics about Davis area
              vets, but I have emailed a few vet cardiologists at UC Davis (about
              giving my cat acepromazine for a vet trip -- no) and they kindly
              responded to my email. I would definitely take advantage of any
              specialists you can up there!! Unfortunately, I do not have any vet
              cardiologists in my area...

                  There's a vet cardiologist up there named Dr. Kienle--he travels
                  around to various vet hospitals in the whole bay area by
                  appointment but he's based in Davis. We saw him once for
                  an ultrasound and were impressed by his manner and sensitivity.
