Has anyone had any experience with horse nebulizers? Which brands and what do you put in them for treatments or meds? Anything I should know about before I purchase? Did you notice any benefits from using it on your horse?

I was also thinking about off setting the price by offering treatments at races? Has anyone ever done this with any luck?

My trainer uses it for my mare he's running. I forget the brand. He was using it on her when I got to her stall at okla city & he showed me the stuff in it that came out of her lungs. It wasn't much, but even a little is not good. As for using one that someone has at a show, personally I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't want my horse to use a mask that has been used on other horses. To me that isn't sanitary, but thats just my humble opinion.   

  ETA ---  He used equi resp on abbie

That's a good point. I've seen people advertise it. I wonder if they have a way to clean it or change the mask out?

I've seen them either clean it or put a different mask on it before I've had it done to my horse at a show. The theraplate people and the nebulizer people usually hang out together so I'll just walk my dude over there when we have some down time and he stands on the plate and gets a treatment for a little pampering during those 3 day shows :

I'd maybe talk to the company about the best way to sanitize it between uses. Even if you're only using it on 1 horse only surely you have to clean/sanitize it between uses I would think??

I won an Equi-Resp, I haven't got it yet, but I'm excited to try it. 

 

Other than my sister and my friend that I haul with I don't plan on working on anyone elses horses.

I have an equi resp and I use it a lot. I do not offer it at races, but I use on my horses and I ALWAYS clean with clorihexidine wipes between horses and I will let hang dry after I am done. I never just swap from one horse to another... I have used it on my gelding with allergies, my colts that get a upper respitory infection, etc...

Those that commented they have used it, have you noticed a difference that made it worth while?

Does the Silver Horse work the same as an equi- resp? Good results?

I have a Flexineb. Super easy to use and both horses I used it on didn't mind it. I used drugs the vet prescribed but I did not tell any difference in his breathing. They are not too bad to clean but I cleaned mine after every use.

I was listening to the owner that came up with the equi rasp and one of the things she stresses is do not use essential oils or any frangrance!  Silver or the prescription from the vet. and if you use meds to follow vet instructions.  I seen how she cleaned and there is no filters and easy to clean.  I was really unsure bout using one til I seen her demo  She also says you shouldnt use just to be using to be sure you have a reason to use it.  It definetely would be great to have on hand for allergies, and sickness!

I'm wondering if this would be better to use on my c.o.p.d. mare rather than having her on tri hist. She doesn't compete anymore. We found out last year that she has c.o.p.d. & watching how she breaths you can tell she has it. We live in okla where the summers suck with humidity  :(
