THANK YOU!!! With that said, thank you so very much for the pharmacy info and gaernel kitty info. Our cat Smokey was diagnosed with feline asthma, after I mentioned it as a possibility to the vet. We were prescribed two inhalers. Both flovent for everyday use and albuterol for when he has an attack. We didn't notice much change with the flovent but the rescue inhaler seems to work during an attack. I have decide to try the flovent once again utilizing the pharmacy you suggested. SO much cheaper then the Canadian pharmacy I had used and WAY cheaper then the pharmacies here in NV. I am still going to try the 125 but up the usage per day. The vet had suggested 110 or 125 and we opted for the 125. Since we didn't notice too much of a change I really appreciate what you said about 225 being safe. If this one more go of 125 doesn't work too well, then I am going for the higher dosage. Luckily Smokey is okay most of the time w/out steroid pills, but with the weather getting colder I am noticing his flare ups happening more frequently. I am also considering buying a humidifier since our weather here in the desert is horribly dry. Once again THANK YOU for all of your help. Although our vet actually called me at home after she researched various pharmacies and prices (very nice and out of her way) your knowledge about the disease and the treatment has far surpassed what I have gotten elsewhere. Continued good health for your beautiful boy Charlie and I am hoping with time and patience our boy Smokey is as good a boy as Charlie when using the inhaler. THAT is a work in progress. And I have the scratch marks to prove it! Reply
