A total of 26,642 dogs with the history of systemic diseases were presented to the medical ward of University administered Veterinary Hospital, Bhoiguda, Secunderabad and Campus Veterinary Hospital, College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad over a period of 26 months i.e., from October 2008 to November 2010. Of these 784 dogs were showing the signs of respiratory disease such as dyspnoea, cough, fever and nasal discharge etc. Among them bacterial respiratory disorders were detected in 370 dogs. From the present results the nebulisation is best method of administration of steroidal and non steroidal drugs particularly for treatment of respiratory diseases in dogs. The benefits of nebulisation of drugs with respiratory diseases is, they do not absorbed into the systemic circulation, requirement of nebulisation drug is very less, do not produce any unpleasant side effects and immediately relieves the breathing difficulties by decongesting the respiratory mucous membrane. Drugs used in three groups of dogs belonging to Ib, IIb and IIIb that had been received nebulisation in addition to the specific drugs showed faster and marked improvement of clinical signs and haematological parameters when compared to those dogs of the Groups Ia, IIa and IIIa received only specific drugs without nebulisation
