Otter with Asthma Learns How to Use Inhaler

(Image: King 5 News)

Mishka is a sea otter that lives at the Seattle Aquarium. She's the first sea otter ever diagnosed with asthma. Her caretakers at the aquarium have trained her to use an inhaler. It delivers to her lungs the same medicine that humans with asthma use.

To get her to take her medicine, the trainers taught Mishka to nose a bottle and receive a treat. She eventually got so good that they could use an inhaler in place of the bottle.
