Examples of Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI) are listed below.

Important: that when the veterinarian writes a prescription for a MDI, it should be an “EVOHALER” (as only this design will fit the AeroDawg).

An MDI should be made available only after a diagnostic workup with a veterinarian. A MDI may be available from a veterinarian, or a veterinarian may direct a client to purchase one from a pharmacy. A prescription is required.
