Otters! They're just like us! Meaning, they deal with certain medical conditions the same way we do!
Mishka the sea otter is believed to have the first case of asthma seen in its species, and is now learning to use an inhaler to combat the coughing!

The adorable animal — who currently resides at the Seattle Aquarium — was diagnosed by a doctor with the lung disease after smoke from nearby wildfires was making it difficult for her to breathe.
So, the one-year-old's trainer is teaching her to push her nose up against an inhaler and take a big breath! And the craziest part is that she's actually taking the same medicine that humans use for their asthma as well!
Mishka will probably have to use the inhaler for the rest of her life, but ch-ch-check her out trying to learn the ropes (below)!

We decided that the title of this post didn't need anything flashy. To the point. The crazy, can't believe it exists, point.
Tired of drinking coffee and soda and tea?? Now you can just inhale your caffeine! Lucky you!
It's called AeroShot.
Here's what it does:
AeroShot's delivery system is a light, plastic inhaler that shoots lime-flavored puffs of powdered caffeine to the tongue, where they are instantly absorbed. Each inhaler contains three puffs, providing a total of 100 mg of caffeine — about as much as in a large cup of coffee. The product also contains 100% of the recommended daily allowance of niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. It's sweetened with stevia, an herbal sweetener that is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar and has no calories.
Give us some of that!
It's slated to cost $2.99 an inhaler, which only has three puffs, and will be sold at places like Starbucks. And it's not a drug, so it didn't need FDA approval — just don't be an idiot with it.
Is it something U'd like to try???
