Can you use an albuterol inhaler on a dog?
Just like people, dogs and cats get asthma. And just like humans, they benefit from using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. The Proventil Albuterol Inhaler quickly delivers the active ingredient, albuterol, deep in to your dog or cat's lungs, where it opens airways and makes it easier to breathe.
Animals are a common trigger of asthma symptoms. You might be allergic to just one animal or more than one. Often it's cats, dogs or horses - but other animals such as rabbits, mice, hamsters, guinea pigs and gerbils can also make asthma symptoms worse. For some people, birds may also trigger asthma symptoms.
- Of all companion animals, cats and horses are the most likely to suffer from diseases that are equivalent to, if not exactly the same, as human asthma. In cats, the disease is so similar that veterinarians usually do simply call it feline asthma. Allergic bronchitis is another term you might hear.
- Yorkies are moderately easy to train. They are terriers, and that means they have a stubborn, independent streak. House training a Yorkie ranges from easy to difficult, depending on the individual dog. Some Yorkies do not like the rain and will refuse to step outside when it is wet.
- There isn't a dog that is hypoallergenic, seeing as it is dander which mainly causes allergies. Therefore, do not believe the breeder who tells you that your Shih-poo (or any other breed) is completely hypoallergenic. The Shih Tzu-Poodle mix is a small dog, being a cross between two small-sized breeds.
The belief about chihuahuas curing Asthma has been around for a very long time. Unfortunately though, the Chihuahua cure just doesn't work. Due to Chihuahuas having less hair, it is true that they are less likely to provoke allergies than some other breeds, however, owning a Chihuahua will not cure Asthma.
- We've all heard that chocolate is toxic to dogs, but you might be surprised to learn what other foods are on the list.
- Alcohol. Alcohol (ethanol) is highly toxic to dogs.
- Some Fruit Seeds, Pits and Cores.
- Grapes and Raisins.
- Chihuahua Temperament: What's Good About 'Em, What's Bad About 'Em. Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs. They are absolutely brimming with personality – often a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. Other than that generalization, Chihuahuas are extremely variable.
- It is too much to expect a puppy to learn both an indoor and an outdoor method. Remember that as the Chihuahua matures, hours will be added to the time that he can hold his needs. By the time a puppy is 6 to 8 months old, pee pads in the house will not be needed if home alone for 7 or 8 hours.
Reverse sneezing is a fairly common respiratory event in dogs, but is rarely seen in cats. Small and brachycephalic breeds are more prone to the condition than other dogs. Reverse sneezing is caused by a spasm of the throat and soft palate that is triggered by an irritant.
- Reverse Sneezing. Another condition common in small breed dogs and also brachycephalic breeds is the tendency to reverse sneeze. While it is indeed a sneeze rather than a cough, the sound a dog makes while it's happening can be mistaken for coughing or choking. In a regular sneeze, air is pushed out through the nose.
- White dog shaker syndrome (also known as idiopathic steroid responsive shaker syndrome, shaker dog syndrome and "little white shakers" syndrome; Latin name Idiopathic Cerebellitis) causes full body tremors in small dog breeds.
- Like we said above, a dog's cold symptoms can be very similar to human symptoms — a runny or stuffed up nose, watery eyes, sneezing and coughing. He may be more lethargic and not eat as much as usual. But it's important to distinguish a cold from other dog illnesses that could be more severe.
