Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 13 years and I'd like to help with your question.

If your question is whether ProAir can be used in cats... the answer is yes. Asthmatic cats can use proair as a rescue inhaler in an asthma attack but it is not meant to be use on any long term or regular basis. If you use it on a regular basis it will become less and less effective.

Has your cat be diagnosed with asthma? If so, you would be better off using a steroid inhaler with an appropriate spacer chamber. The ProAir would just be for use during an asthma attack... which I would hope happens less than once a week.

I hope that helps, but if you have more questions or if you were looking for different information let me know.
