I use the Silver Horse Care nebulizer.  I have a bleeder.  It has made a huge difference.
They worked with my vet to come up with a treatment plan.
Definately worth the money.  I think Silver Horse Care may be less expensive than Equi Resp.  Not totally sure.

You can make a red neck one and just buy the meds to go with it..... MUCH cheaper. I will add you must have a nebulizer of some sort (you can find them used for $150 or so) but the attachment can be made from tubing, a bucket, and a towel to go around the edge.

I also use the one by Silver Horse Care, amazing product, I have 2 horses with lung issues and the results have been almost unbelieveable. They both have made HUGE improvements in a very short time and their runs are proving it. I wish I had one of these a long time ago, but I will never be without one again....definitely worth the investment!!!

I have been wondering about this too as my horse has really bad allergies. However I read on the Silver and its says there isn't much studies done on it and it could cause harm, so I am still on the fence.  Too much on Google to read!

Have you done the immunotheraphy for allergies?  I am going to start mine in a few weeks, but if it doesn't kick his cough I wonder if something like this would.  I guess I better start Googling now!

I have a Centurion Transpirator and love it!! We have a horse that had a chronic cough for about 6 years but when scoped we could never see anything or find anything to get rid of it, after a week of treatments last fall he has not coughed once!!

No I haven't, but now you got me interested. Would love to know what you see for results. Its so frustrating trying to deal with it.  We still have about 4 feet of snow here, so I don't think we'll see Spring till at least May!! Keep us updated how it works out.

I spoke with the guy that "created this" last weekend at a barrel race. Wasn't impressed on what he had to say about it. I personally don't have a bleeder but am a RN so I have know I'm talking about when it comes to lung issues, neb treatments, etc. Anyways to me it was glorified water and as for his education on the matter he has none.....I don't know if I would throw down the $350-$700 bucks on the machine just yet. JMO....But there sure was a line up for everyone wanting the try new fad!

I bought the $350 model. I use an RX from my vet for a horse who has inflammatory airway disease and then follow up with the equiresp silver. I tried it on one of my horses at the Glen Rose American qualifier in november and in one treatment she did have a reduced cough warming up. The day before she gave about 4 good coughs. that night when I treated her she coughed once.

I like the machine and have seen results with the horse we consistently use it on for her IAD.

I don't believe it is a fad. People have been nebulizing for years. It just hasn't been this affordable. I know you can make your own for less money but for me this was just more convenient and still drastically cheaper than other models out there.

I'm with you...I dont' have a need for it, but have been waiting to hear if there are any fungal issues that come up with these machines.

I wouldn't hook my horse up to a mask and tubing that had been used on 50 other horses. I don't care what they say. Hospitals aren't sharing this equipment among humans for a reason.

I predict a big ole virus spread of something if this keeps up.

They have you sanitize it between horses. I actually sanitize mine twice. Before, and after.

I would also think the silver they breath will help kill any extra fungus that might be there.

I just keep extra tubing.  I have a different set for every horse.  I don't share any of it.
I had bronchitis a few weeks ago and used it on myself.  It helped me get over it alot faster.
