AeroDawg* Canine Aerosol Chamber
The AeroDawg* Canine Aerosol Chamber (CAC) is designed to be used with a metered dose inhaler (puffer) as recommended by a veterinarian to deliver aerosol medication to dogs with respiratory diseases such as chronic bronchitis, laryngeal paralysis or tracheal collapse.
When the AeroDawg* CAC is attached to the puffer it allows your dog to breathe normally and inhale the aerosol medication so that the medication goes deep into your dogs’ lungs where it is needed. The Revolutionary Flow-Vu* Inspiratory Indicator Using the Flow-Vu* Indicator takes the guesswork out of using your dog’s puffer medication. The Flow-Vu* Indicator will help you count the number of breaths your dog has taken through the chamber and may help to ensure there is a satisfactory seal between the muzzle and the mask, to optimize the delivery of the medication. As your dog inhales, the bright green Flow-Vu* Indicator will flutter or move towards the dog (if you have a good facemask seal). When the dog stops inhaling or exhales, the indicator will return to the vertical position. The ideal time to activate the puffer is when your pet starts to inhale and the Flow-Vu* Indicator is moving horizontally towards them.
Chronic Bronchitis is one of the most common respiratory diseases in dogs2
Common signs of chronic bronchitis include daily coughing, gagging or swallowing after the cough, difficulty breathing or wheezing for 2-3 months or longer.
Your veterinarian is the best person to speak to about your dog’s condition.
Remove cap and shake inhaler.
Insert inhaler into back of chamber and gently apply the mask to your dog’s face.
Press the inhaler to release the medication when the Flow-Vu* Inhalation Indicator is moving toward your dog and hold the mask in place for 5-6 breaths.

"I got the AeroDawg* as a last effort before putting my five year old dog down. I didn’t know if it would work, but I was willing to try it just to keep her a little longer. She can breathe again, and I just wanted to thank you for making this product. If we don’t remember to give her the AeroDawg* she will go sit under the shelf where we keep it until she gets it. Thanks from my dog Penelope and me!"
"I just wanted to let you know that he has been to the vet recently and he reported that Bullet’s breathing and heart were in excellent condition for a 7 year old Yorkie. He commented that the Flovent† treatments were remarkable and attributed the dog’s good health to using the medication with the AeroDawg. The vet said, barring other illness, that Bullet could easily live another 10 years. Thanks to the AeroDawg we will have Bullet around for many years to come."
"My partner Philip has just invested in the AeroDawg canine aerosol chamber, as our pet dog called Sydney has Chronic bronchitis. Prior to this, we had given Sydney steroid tablets and other medicines but after time failed to help him after being on them, but after only the first time in using the aerosol chamber we have seen the difference in Sydney...We are very happy that Sydney seems to be a lot more at peace.”

“I have just used the AeroDawg inhaler on my sheltie for the first time ever and though [sic] I would let everyone know how amazing it is.”
"The AeroDawg is amazing. My Miniature Schnauzer doesn't mind it all all, and because he is now able to use Flovent in the AeroDawg, he is doing much better."
