I do...my Ophelia was diagnosed with asthma several years ago. In my research on this, I found a site I consider wonderful - click here
Ophelia was initially treated with brethine. When that lost effectiveness we switched to an inhaler (using a nifty device called an aerokat
) She is now on every other day prednisolone, a smallish dose, and this is maintaining things pretty well, though she still has occasional mild attacks. She def. reacts to change of seasons, with spring being the worst for her. If my dh's allergies are up, she's having attacks..something bothers them both!
