Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Aerosol Chamber - Bronchitis -

Find a very small carrier that you can cover with a towel, then you can push the medication into the small environment with him in it. Leave him in the carrier for at least 15 minutes afterwards you can go longer if he is doing okay but no more then 30 minutes is needed. Hope this helps. I do nebulization this way on cats and ferrets and it works really well. Best of luck.
