What else should I know about Flovent?

  • A built-in dose counter on the canister makes it easy to track the number of doses left. 
    Be sure to check the dose meter regularly to ensure your pet is receiving a full dose of Flovent.
    Using special feline and canine aerosol masks (sold separately) helps ensure that your pet receives the full dose of Flovent. Be sure that the facemask you use to administer Flovent fits your pet properly – it should fit snuggly around the muzzle and corners of the mouth.

  • Flovent is a human-labeled medication that may be prescribed for extra-label use by a veterinarian to treat certain medical conditions in dogs and cats. As a pet pharmacy, VetRxDirect only dispenses this medication with a veterinarian’s prescription for use in animals.

What problems could my dog or cat have with Flovent?

  • When prescribed for dogs and cats, it may take 7-10 days for Flovent to show its full effect.
    Flovent is not an effective treatment for acute bronchospasm, active wheezing, or shortness of breath in dogs or cats.

  • Inhaled steroids usually cause fewer side effects in dogs and cats than when these drugs are injected (given by shot) or given orally (by mouth).

  • Flovent side effects in dogs and cats are uncommon and may include a sore throat. If this sign is severe, worsens, or continues to be a problem, contact your veterinarian. 

  • Although unlikely, long-term, high doses of this drug could cause “Cushingoid” effects. If you see greater thirst and need to urinate, increased appetite, weight gain, pot belly, skin or coat changes, hair loss, or weakness, contact your veterinarian. 

How do you use Flovent?

  • Shake well before use.

  • When using an aerosol medication, a special mask is usually used to fit over the face of the dog or cat to allow more medication to reach the lungs. 

  • Most effective when used with a spacer or chamber like the AeroKat or AeroDawg Aerosol Chambers. The chamber mixes the drug with air so that your dog or cat will breathe in the medication instead of swallowing it.
