What is Albuterol Sulfate used for?

Albuterol Sulfate is used primarily as a bronchodilator. It can also be used to improve hypoxemia in horses.

What should I do if my pets illness worsens?

Contact veterinarian if animal's condition deteriorates or if it becomes acutely ill.

What should I do if my cat does not like the face-mask used with Albuterol?

When using inhaled albuterol with an appropriate spacer/face-mask in cats, the following tips have been recommended: Allow cat to get used to and investigate the device over several days. Reward fearless approaches to device and start placing it near cat's face. Practice with the mask over the cats face without anything in the chamber. Pre-load the chamber with a puff of albuterol. Make sure the mask is placed snugly over the muzzle for 4 to 6 breaths.

    I bought this in the hope that it was the spray type but I was wrong. I'm sure that it works well , but you have to use this type in a NEBULIZER. So I need to return it as soon as CHEWY sends me the paperwork to return it back to them.

    Life savor for asthmatic cat

    By Catmomto7 on Nov 7, 2021

    My Big Red Cat has severe asthma. We put 1 vial in his nebulizer and put him in his carrier to breathe it in. Takes about 10 minutes to do a treatment.

    This is not what we needed. We will have to return, I will contact to find out the process. We need an inhaler, that looks like what people use. We purchased the inhaler through Chewy as well but earlier, and had 1 inhaler but now we need to order it. Thanks
