Description of AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber
AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber is a device used for delivering metered doses of medicines to dogs. Pet owners buy AeroDawg Canine Aerosol to provide relief to pets suffering from chronic bronchitis. The drug delivered is generally a corticosteroid spray or a bronchodilator. The medication generally prescribed contains Fluticasone.
Indications & Dosage of AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber
The AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber is used for delivering the drug to pets suffering from asthma. Pet owners buy AeroDawg Canine Aerosol for administering the inhalant to dogs that have chronic bronchitis. The AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber is also used in the case of pets with a tracheal collapse or laryngeal paralysis. The CAC is available in two sizes. A small size for pets below 20lbs, and a large size for pets above 20 lbs.
Pet owners often buy AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber because dogs cannot inhale like humans from metered dose inhalers. This attachment allows pet owners to time the aerosol inhaler’s delivery to the inhalation of a pet dog. It is a simple transparent plastic attachment for the mouth of the inhaler. At the other end is a soft cup to be placed on the mouth and nose of the dog. Pets learn to get used to this with the help of their caretakers. AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber is a simple device that has a short learning curve when it comes to drug administration.
AeroDawg Canine Aerosol Chamber is apt for asthma symptoms such as persistent cough and an inability to do normal exercises that are necessary for the pet’s health. The veterinarian has to be consulted if these conditions persist. The AeroDawg CAC has an indicator which allows the pet owner to count the number of inhalations taken by the pet. The inhaler system is preferred because it delivers the medicine to the lungs directly, thus reducing the side effects of the drug. The drug is generally given twice a day to dogs.
The inhaler itself is available in two strengths. One is a 220 mcg dose and the other is a 110 mcg dose. The veterinarian will prescribe the dosage according to the weight of the dog and the severity of bronchial asthma. It is usual for heavier pets to be given 220 mcg, and once there is a significant improvement in the bronchial condition of the pet, 110 mcg can be given two times a day. A single aerosol inhaler contains enough inhalant to last a month.
