Clyde and his inhaler

Clyde had a long history of a dirty discharge from his nose, ever since he was a kitten. He had usually responded well to treatment with antibiotics but in July 2011 his condition deteriorated to the point where we decided to refer him to the Edinburgh Vet School for specialist advice. After a battery of tests including: a full blood test; CT scans of the head and chest; video scope of the nose; bacterial culture and biopsies of the nose and upper airways, Clyde was started on an aggressive course of antibiotics and steroids for a complicated pneumonia. Part of this treatment was an inhaled steroid delivered via this specially designed feline inhaler. Now this remains the only treatment that Clyde requires, which he accepts quite happily and without a struggle.
