Respiratory problems are frequently implicated in horses as a cause of poor sportive performances. The most frequently occurring lower respiratory tract disorders are Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO) also known as Heaves, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) and Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Haemorrhage (EIPH). Typically, their treatment includes systemic administration of drugs using injections or the oral route, however, AEROSOL THERAPY is now known to be a more specific way to treat respiratory disorders with a better efficacy/toxicity ratio. Nortevs Flexineb is an easy-to-use drug delivery device that produces a very fine mist of aerosolised drug enabling this form of therapy for the horse.
Here is the treatment protocol for utilizing Equisilver with the Flexineb.
25cc Equisilver 2x day for 3 days
25cc Equisilver 1x day every other day or as needed
It is recommended to administer 15-20cc of Equisilver Head and Throat wash on the off days if possible.
