dc.description.abstractObjective: To describe a case report of feline bronchial asthma detailing standard and novel treatment options for the emergency patient. Case Summary: A 5.5-year-old, castrated male, Domestic Shorthair cat presented with acute onset of dyspnea and tachypnea. Crackles were auscultable in all lung fields, and the patient was tachycardic. Diagnostic procedures, including thoracic radiography, electrocardiography, complete blood count, biochemical profile, and bronchoalveolar lavage supported a diagnosis of feline bronchial asthma. Treatment was initiated with dexamethasone sodium phosphate, terbutaline, and oxygen supplementation. The patient was discharged 24 hours after initial presentation with instructions for using inhalant beta2-adrenergic and glucocorticoid medications to manage his disease. Keywords: feline bronchial asthma, bronchodilators, corticosteroid, leukotriene, beta2-adrenergic, methylxanthinesen_US
