Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.
I have a question before I can help you properly.
Can you tell me how long ago this happened?
Thank you I have one more question, does this particular bottle say what it's strength is? Usually something that says mg/ml, or a %.
It's pretty dangerous stuff if ingested so we should assume he did.
Thanks, that's the amount, I need the strength.
It appears Dr. Dan has left the conversation. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. My name is Rebecca.
I looked up albuterol inhalers, it looks like there are 2.5 mg albuterol in 3 ml. If that is what it says on the label of your inhaler, he got about 2 mg. If he got all the liquid in the inhaler, he could develop a dangerously high blood pressure and heart rate, and should be started on drug called a beta blocker to conteract these symptoms.
How is he doing? Are his gums pink or pale? Can you count how many times his heart beats in 15 seconds?
If it spilled out, he will be fine. If he ingested the contents, he will need to see a veterinarian.
How is Brody doing?
Glad to hear that, thank you for for letting me know. Rebecca
