A sea otter in America has been given an inhaler to help with her breathing after being diagnosed with asthma.

Mishka started having trouble breathing after smoke from nearby wildfires blew into her aquarium.

A vet examined her and discovered she'd developed asthma, which is a common disease in humans and means they sometimes struggle to breathe properly.

Now Mishka's trainer Sara Perry is teaching Mishka to use an inhaler, which is a gadget that helps her take her medicine.

Watch this clip showing Mishka learning to use her inhaler.
