Sophie is a one year old domestic short hair cat who was adopted in January from a local shelter. A few weeks after arriving at her new home, she began to hack.
It sounded almost as if she was trying to pass a hairball, but something wasn’t quite right, so it was off to see Dr. Erinne Branter, an Internal Medicine Specialist at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Los Angeles.
A few tests and a radiograph later and Sophie was diagnosed with Feline Asthma, and recommended to ‘use an inhaler’ twice a day. What a difference: Sophie is now able to run, jump, roll-around and dream of what cat’s dream about without the hindrances she had to endure.
Thank you Dr. Branter.
NOTE: Sophie’s owner is none other than Shannon Brown, our high-energy, always ready to serve others, ACCESS Hospital Representative.
