Ventolin HFA (albuterol sulfate)

If your pet has intermittent asthma, it’s a good idea to have an inhaler at the ready if symptoms arise. Your veterinarian may prescribe the Ventolin HFA inhaler with the active ingredient albuterol sulfate which helps open the airways for easier breathing. 

  • Relieves the symptoms of asthma
  • For cats and dogs
  • Use in combination with the AeroKat or AeroDawg Aerosol Chamber  

Dogs and cats can breathe easy with Ventolin HFA Inhalation Aerosol. The active ingredient, albuterol sulfate, is a bronchodialtor that opens the airways quickly. This inhaler can be used only as needed. The AeroKat or AeroDawg Aerosol Chamber make it much easier to administer this inhaled medication.

  • 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.
