A: While more is being learned about what triggers human asthma attacks, the three most common causes are a protein found on cats, dust mites and cockroach feces, according to veterinary pulmonologist Dr. Philip Padrid.
"We don't know for certain what triggers asthma in cats," he notes.
"We know pollution or secondhand smoke are not primary factors, though.
It could be that some cats have a genetic predisposition.
In any case, the current best treatment (which Padrid helped develop) is, indeed, a kitty inhaler, which contains a steroid.
Previously, steroids were given to cats via injection, and over time, adverse side effects could occur.
"This is a much safer option," Padrid says.
With positive reinforcement training, most cats can be conditioned to tolerate the mask which the delivers the steroid.
In fact, Padrid, of Corrales, NM, says that in one study 85 percent of cats readily took to the inhaler.
