AeroKat* Feline Aerosol Chamber
The AeroKat* Feline Aerosol Chamber (FAC) is designed to be used with a Metered Dose Inhaler (puffer) as prescribed by a veterinarian to deliver aerosol medication to cats with feline asthma, chronic bronchitis or allergic rhinitis.
When the AeroKat* FAC is attached to the puffer it allows your cat to breathe normally and inhale the aerosol medication which goes deep into your cat's lungs, where it is needed.
The Flow-Vu* Indicator takes the guesswork out of using your cat's aerosol medication. The Flow-Vu* Indicator will help you count the number of breaths your cat 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 cat inhales, the bright green Flow-Vu* Indicator will flutter or move towards the cat (if you have a good facemask seal). When your cat 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.
AeroKat* Chamber comes with 2 masks (3.2cm & 3.9cm in diameter). The mask should cover you cat's nose and mouth but not the eyes. Metered dose inhaler not included. Please see your cat's veterinarian for a prescription.
Remove cap and shake inhaler.
Insert inhaler into back of chamber and gently apply the mask to your cat’s face.
Press the inhaler to release the medication when the Flow-Vu* Inhalation Indicator is moving toward your cat and hold the mask in place for 5-6 breaths.
Giving your cat their inhaler medication is not always easy. Here are some tips and tricks from some other AeroKat* Chamber users.
