Welcome to FAIM! Feline Asthma Inhaled Medication Users Group has been formed to provide a focused forum that encourages discussion among current and prospective inhaled med users, veterinarians and medication and modality developers.
The primary goal of this group is to provide a meeting place of the minds - caregivers, veterinarians, product developers so that with our combined knowledge we may positively influence the future of our beloved asthmatic felines and for those to come. The secondary goal is to act as an information resource for those caregivers and prescribers considering inhaled med therapy as an alternative to traditional medications. Expectedly, through our discussions a valuable research archive has been formed.
If you are new to feline asthma and are looking for general info on symptoms, triggers, diagnostic tests, medications, prognosis etc. please check out Feline Asthma with Fritz the Brave
It gives a wonderful overview of feline asthma related topics and is respected by the leading feline respiratory specialists worldwide. Most importantly, it contains photos and videos of the inhaled med delivery process.

Cats and circumstances are variable so what may work for some may not work for all.
