I have a cat with asthma and we do all of this (minus the bundling restraint since she's used to it by now), except we are sure to wipe her face with a wet cloth/paper towel downwards afterwards to clean the medicine off of her face. I did it incorrectly at first and she had a bad reaction to the meds getting in her eyes from her wiping it there when cleaning. I don't know if you clean faces after treatment but just a comment that maybe you should consider doing so?

Shauna, that's a GREAT point. I have not experienced that with any of my patients, but it makes sense that it could happen, and better safe than sorry. Thank you for sharing!
