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 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.
AeroDawg* Small Chamber includes small and medium sized facemasks (3.2cm & 3.9cm diameter).
AeroDawg* Large Chamber includes medium and large sized facemasks (3.9cm & 4.7cm diameter).
