Links at manufacturer's website (including dosing sheet and instructions on use):
Examples of Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI) are listed below.
Important: that when the veterinarian writes a prescription for a MDI, it should be an “EVOHALER” (as only this design will fit the AeroDawg).
An MDI should be made available only after a diagnostic workup with a veterinarian. A MDI may be available from a veterinarian, or a veterinarian may direct a client to purchase one from a pharmacy. A prescription is required.
Examples of suitable MDIs available in Singapore:
Flixotide 125 Evohalerdelivers 125 mcg of fluticasone per dose (120 doses)
– Long term management, to avoid or reduce dose of systemic steroidal medication
Ventolin 100 Evohalerdelivers 100 mcg salbutamol (albuterol) per dose (200 doses)
