was it just your vet that diagnosed the heart murmur?  I strongly recommend taking your puppy to a veterinary cardiologist for a complete workup.  Also establishing a relationship with a cardiologist will aid in lifelong follow up care and management of any underlying conditions.  They can also give you the best advice about exercise restrictions and lifestyle.  Puppies can have benign heart murmurs that go away by about 15 weeks, but I have never seen a 4/6 murmur go away. Good luck!
