I also have a seperate setup for each horse I am doing it on and I don't really use it on any horses other than my own.

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 was afraid of that. I looked at one and was not impressed with how little "steam" it puts out. I too have been concerned with cross contamination from horse to horse. I'm anxious to see results on some horses I "know".

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.  

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 watched the guy do 3 treatments on horses while I talked to him. He didn't sanitize anything, he wiped it out with a dry rag....

I sanitize my unit too! I have different nebuizer cups and tubes for each horse. The only thing they use the same is the actual mask which is cleaned out and sanitized.

I'm seeing some confusing things on here about Equi-Resp.
1. The product EquiSilver was created by Dr. Michael Cavey, DVM from Lexington KY. It has been used extensively in the race horse world for over 10 years. Some of the top vet clinics in the world use it on multi-million dollar horses. You can go to the EquiSilver website to learn more about the product. It has been used by the Olympic Equestrian teams that went to both London and China. Also can be used day of race at Churchill Downs. It is far from "glorified tap water". It is a patented process of silver and is 100-110 parts per million. Most colloidal silvers are 10-50 parts per million. A good test for any silver product is to pour a little in a bowl and add salt. If it has enough silver to be effective, it turns milky. EquiSilver was designed specifically for nebulization, nothing else. That is why the top three systems in the world, The Transpirator, Flexineb and Equ-iResp all have specific protocols for EquiSilver.
2. Equi-Resp was developed because the other two units mentioned above are very expensive. The Transpirator is $8400.00 and the Flexineb is $1000.00. Neither mask fit a horse properly, the Equi-Resp mask was designed with vets and engineers to ensure enough volume within the mask to work with the PSI of a horse's lungs and the gasket was designed to keep nebulized product from escaping. Why let the product go out the top and not be breathed in by the horse? 2 years of research and work went into the development. It is patent pending. It was also designed with two models, one for serious issues or multi-horse use to help get deep into the respiratory system. The smaller unit is strictly for those horses without issues but you want to keep their system clean. Both are the most cost effective units on the market that use EquiSilver.
3. All you have to do is go the Equi-Resp facebook page and see all the happy customers and great comments about how this is truly helping horses. Real, true results! I doubt anyone would make those posts if they were not seeing results.
4. If you have any questions about the product all you have to do is call the owner and developer of the company, A WOMAN, and she will be happy to answer any question you have. She is as surprised as anyone at all the great, wonderful things being said about her company and how it is TRULY helping horses.

SG. - 2015-03-20 2:07 PM Where is the air filter at? 

I'm going to second the question SG posed above.  With no filter, what is keeping the pollutants in the air (dust, mold, etc.) from being pushed deep into the lungs in the process of this treatment?  If there is a filter, can it be removed and cleaned?

Silver has been around forever as an inhibitor of bacteria because it prevents bacteria from forming. Its currently used in human medicine for MANY different purposes for this reason.

Colloidal silver (a colloid consisting of silver particles suspended in liquid) and formulations containing silver salts were used by physicians in the early 20th century, but their use was largely discontinued in the 1940s following the development of safer and effective modern antibiotics.[8][9] Since the 1990s, colloidal silver has again been marketed as an alternative medicine, often with extensive "cure-all" claims. Colloidal silver products remain available in many countries as dietary supplements and homeopathic remedies, although they are not effective in treating any known condition and carry the risk of both permanent cosmetic side effects such as argyria and more serious ones such as allergic reactions, and interactions with prescription medications.[10][11]

It is currently used in wound dressing for burn victims or anyone coming out of surgery with skin conditions. Had a horse stitched up at outlaw equine and he sprayed this on him. I've never seen a wound heal so quickly, sorry no pics on this computer. The silver wound spray is really amazing stuff and many vets are using it now. The silver cream for humans is extremely popular among physicians as well and I know my aunt's doctor prescribed a silver mix cream to help her with sores on her legs from poor circulation.

Wikepedia needs updated LOL

I use the silver spray on EXTERNAL wounds as well. It does form a nice protective barrier. But that is different than pushing it to delicate lung tissues.

I LOVE MINE!!! I have tried everything under the sun for my mare to keep her IAD in check and NOTHING as worked as well as the Equi Resp! Cannot say enough great things about this product. Best money I've spent since her diagnosis. So excited to never pump another steroid into her as well!

btw, I sanitize mine ;)

Also, to add a note about silver -- My mare CANNOT have antibiotics. They make her sick sick and I deal with the repricussions for months following.. as I have with the steroids that were pumped into her last year. I work closely with a vet as well as a naturopath who does live blood cell analysis on her every 6-8 weeks. Her latest blood check came back with a severe bacterial infection due to her lymphatic and immune systems shutting down in response to the steroids. My naturopath put her on EXTRA strength silver that is 400ppm. She Has been on it for 5 days so far and already she is starting to feel better. Silver is considered one of the best natural antibiotics on the market.
