She’s The First Ever Otter With Asthma, Watch Her Learning To Use An Inhaler.
A sea otter in Seattle, Washington, is breathing a lot easier thanks to her inhaler. Mishka was recently diagnosed with asthma after the wildfires in her state last month. The smoke made its way into the Seattle Aquarium affecting the otter’s breathing.
Her inhaler contains the same medication as humans. Food is used to encourage Mishka to learn how to breathe into the inhaler. It is expected that the marine life will need her puffer for the rest of her life. The sea otter is the first of its kind to be diagnosed with asthma.
