Diabetic helped with Inhaled Medication

My cat had developed diabetes from the Prednisone and depo shots for asthma. Anyway, since being off the steroids (since 11/02), and with a short time on insulin, she is back to normal blood glucose levels. She has not had a shot of insulin since 2/28/03! Also, I went and purchased the AeroKat® and albuterol, with the blessings of my vet, and she had been doing great! She has never been this long off any steroid based medications, and the albuterol seems to catch the cough and deal with it.

Asthma - on four legs and two

Hi there! This is kimlovescats from Pet Talk. I just visited Fritz's website, what a gorgeous boy he is! It is just amazing how kitties can suffer from the same ailments as we do, and now even receive the same treatment. I suffer from allergy induced asthma myself, as does my 14 year old daughter. We both use the albuterol inhaler with an AeroChamber®! Thanks for the information, and a delightful web visit! Kim & Kitties

  • Hello Fritz, I'm glad to learn about you on your website and find that you are doing so well. I teach an on-line Animal Medicine course in the Veterinary Technology program at Manor College in Jenkintown, PA. Would it was ok if I put a link to your site in my on-line notes? My last lecture this year covers Feline Asthma and I find your website to be a great summary of the disease as well as containing several helpful links. Thanks for the great site and for your consideration. Sincerely, Mary Ann Seagren, DVM
  • I am writing to once again thank you and your husband for the work on the website. We get lots of feedback. And for the AeroKat® work which has become the first line of treatment now in our asthmatic kitties. I am taking an online course through VIN (Veterinary Information Network) which last week was feline pulmonary medicine. One of the slides that was presented showed you administering the medication to Fritz and I thought it important to let you know the contribution you've made. Hope that this year is good to you all. Sincerely, Randall Ulrich DVM
  • I am a veterinarian from Poland, Europe. My field of interest is cardiology and respiratory disorders. A lot of my patients are cats with asthma and coughing dogs. Actually I am writing an article concerning respiratory problems especially cough in dogs and cats. Not so far ago I have found possibility of new method of treatment using the inhaled drugs. Normally we use aminophylline drops and steroid given orally or by injection. During my web search I have found site. It is really interesting. Now I am starting to explore it. Best regards, Rafal Niziolek, DVM, Warsaw, Poland

Vet Tech Gains Info to Help Others

Hi, I really enjoy your web site. It is very useful. I just found out that my cat has asthma. As a vet tech I enjoy researching any medical information I can get. One of the doctors at the hospital I work at gave me your web site. Thanks again.

Success with Inhalers

I would like to thank you for the time you spent to put this website together. I am now using the inhaler for my seal point Siamese Molly and we are thrilled with the success. I had the inhaler but was not successful in using it on her until I saw your website and tried your method. I just want you to know that I appreciate your work. My vet studied under Dr. Padrid at UC Davis and she said he was the expert. Molly sends her loves and purrs to Fritz.

Inspired with the Right Vet

Thank you so much for offering all this asthma info on your site!! The first thing the new vet brought up was inhaled treatments! She is very experienced with all treatments listed on your site. Thank you again for the wealth of info.
