Asthma can make it harder for your pet to breathe. The Proair Albuterol Inhaler makes it easier. This prescription medication is a bronchodilator that opens up airways in the lungs and provides quick relief for dogs and cats.
Albuterol sulfate, the active ingredient in the Proair Albuterol Inhaler, is one of the most common and effective medications prescribed to ease asthma symptoms in dogs and cats. The medication gets down deep into the lungs where it opens up airways and makes it easier to breathe. Administering this medication using only the inhaler can be difficult with some pets, so consider using the Proair Albuterol Inhaler in combination with the AeroKat or AeroDawg Aerosol Chamber.

A:My vet says cats can't take albuterol
A:ProAir HFA (albuterol sulfate) 90mcg is a prescription medication intended for individual use and should only be used as directed by a licensed physician, or veterinarian. ProAir may be used in both human and in veterinary medicine for the treatment of asthma; however, the dosage of ProAir for asthma in veterinary medicine can differ from the dosage that is prescribed for human use. Pet’s also require an aerochamber or spacer to ease administration. You should follow-up with your pet’s veterinarian to help you determine what dose is best for your pet and what spacer/aerochamber and mask are needed. The veterinarian can also help you decide if other albuterol containing inhalers are an option, such as Ventolin HFA, or if additional medications are needed for the asthma (e.g., inhaled corticosteroids).
