Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Oscar swallowed a small amount of albuterol solution. I am assuming this medication was meant for a human and it was not a medication for Oscar. Is that correct?

It would also be helpful to know about how much Oscar weighs and how much you think he may have swallowed. Neither of these have to be exact, but an estimate would be helpful to get an idea of what treatments if any are needed.
