Proair Albuterol Inhaler

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.

  • Fast acting relief from the symptoms of asthma
  • For dogs and cats
  • Most effective when used with the AeroKat or AeroDawg Aerosol Chamber  

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.  


What you should know about Proair Albuterol Inhaler:

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product. 
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses. 
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

DRUG Albuterol

One strength, 90 mcg dose


  1. It is more rapidly acting than the oral or sq or i.m. form of terbutaline
  2. It is more effective than the theophylline compounds (theodur)



Asthma in cats

  1. Maybe be used daily or as needed for asthmatic cat already on daily steroids – if there is increased cough, wheeze, or increased respiratory rate and effort at rest
  2. Usually used only as needed for cats with intermittent signs of asthma (not daily signs)



  1. Musculoskeletal twitchiness
  2. Excitability, insomnia, anorexia



This drug is very safe-with profound overdose (cat chews canister) there are reported problems with potassium regulation-I have never seen this.



  1. Rx the drug as the generic (albuterol MDI) - two puffs into AeroKat BID (GIVEN INDIVIDUALLY).
  2. Cat should breathe the drug through the mask and AeroKat for 7-10 seconds.
  3. Positive clinical effect should be seen within 5-10 minutes.
  4. Can be used every ½ hr for 2-4 hrs as needed in crisis.

  • Q:

    Can cats use Ventolin HFA (albuterol sulfate) 90 mcg my vet tells me no I need help for her but  can't aford the high cost of other like $200.00 when this cost $53.89
    Asked on 1/20/2015 by Mali from Illinois, United States

    1 answer

    • A:


      Ventolin HFA and Proair HFA inhalers both contain the same active ingredient, albuterol sulfate, and are commonly prescribed for cats. However, these medications differ by the inactive ingredients that they contain which may be the reason for your veterinarian’s concern. Please consult your veterinarian regarding switching or starting any new medications in your pet.

      Thank you,

      My vet  says cats can't take albuterol

      Answered on 1/20/2015 by Mali
    • 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).

      Thank you,

    I bought my dog Arnold this product 2months ago . I am wondering if I can use it for my asthma this morning . Help !
    Asked on 11/4/2013 by marie

    1 answer

    • A:


      You should never use medications that have not been prescribed for you.  Many medications used in veterinary pharmacy are human medications, but we do not dispense for human use.  You should consult your own physician for the appropriate medication for your asthma.

      Thank you,

    Does this come with a mask?
    Asked on 9/10/2013 by Virginia

    1 answer

    • A:


      ProAir and other inhalers do not include a mask. You would also want to add an AeroKat Feline Aerosol Chamber or AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber to your order.
