Mishka is the first sea otter in the world to have been diagnosed with asthma. Mishka is in Seattle and has to take an inhaler just like those of us with asthma do. You’ll want to watch this video of them training her to use her inhaler (Flovent) and hear more about Mishka and her asthma. More research will have to be done to look at environmental factors and impacts on asthma to see how changes in the environment affects everyone, not only humans.
