Description

Albuterol is a bronchodilator prescribed by veterinarians primarily to treat bronchitis or other respiratory conditions in cats and horses. While constricted bronchi in dogs is rare, albuterol may be used to treat if present. May also be used for coughs in dogs, cats and horses.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

Uses

Albuterol is used principally in cats and horses for its effects on bronchial smooth muscle to alleviate bronchospasm or cough. True bronochoconstriction is rare in dogs, but when present, albuterol may be useful.

Possible Side Effects

Most adverse effects are dose-related and those that would be expected with sympathetic agents including increased heart rate, temors, CNS excitement, and dizziness.

Drug & Food Interactions

The following drug interactions with albuterol (primarily when albuterol is given orally and not via inhalation) have either been reported or are theoretical or animals and may be of significance in veterinary patients: Beta-adrenergic blocking agents, digoxin, diuretics, inhaled anesthetics, other sympathomimetic amines, and tricyclic antidepressants.

Precautions

Albuterol is contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to it. It should be used with caution in patients with diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypertension, seizure disorders, or cardiac disease (especially with concurrent arrhythmias).

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

    Great product!

    By Courtney on Aug 3, 2021

    My 24 yr old gelding has developed heaves over the last few years. He only has symptoms in the summer but his symptoms have gotten progressively worse. He doesn't respond to steroids so I've been giving him breathing treatments to get him through the worst of it. We were giving him several treatments a day until I found this syrup, which keeps him stabilized and needing far fewer aerosol treatments. Love this stuff!

    Albuterol syrup

    By Kitty on May 16, 2020

    My cat has asthma. She doesn’t need a lot of this, just 1 ml once a day or so, not always every day, more like every other day. The vet was encouraging me to try the inhaler type because he said it’s more effective and causes less side effects. My cat hasn’t had any side effects and it works great. I don’t know about animals that would have to take it a lot. Maybe they might have side effects. I’m really glad I tried this first before the inhaler! Easy, effective and cheaper!
