Respiratory problems (such as COPD, IAD, RAO/heaves and EIPH) in horses are frequently the 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, administration via Inhalation through horse nebuliser masks and inhalers are now considered to be a viable alternative way to treat respiratory disorders (including Breathing, Airway or Lung problems). Nortev’s Flexineb is an easy-to-use delivery device that produces a very fine mist of aerosolised solution enabling this method of treatment for the horse.
