Pro's & Con's to each. I just bought the Flexineb but want to hear everyone's opinions or advice and what med's do you use with your nebulizer. How often do you give treatments, etc. Have you seen a difference in your horse?
Thanks so much.

Ive used both, the Flexineb is by far the best product. I use equisilver for maintence few times a month but I primarily use it to give my mare her albuterol just prior to her run. My vet also has mixed up custom solutions for various horses/conditions.
I have the Equiresp "pro" unit and the equimist. Don't waste your money on the Equimist. It's not worth the money. I got it to hopefully prevent having to haul a generator to small shows or try to find electricity. Right after the "warranty" period it stopped working. I don't feel it helped my horse nearly as well as the regular unit does. I do have plans to get a Flexineb as I have heard they are even better than the nebulizer machines. I use mine a few times a month for maintenance and before I run with my guy who is a bleeder.
Has anyone ever used Silver Horse Care nebulizer? Curious because it's significantly less expensive but it does have some excellent reviews. I know it's probably not as high powered as the flexineb and it's probably a you get what you pay for deal. But looks like their best system is around $400.00.

That is the one I have. It gets the job done but I think I'd like it, and use it more if it was cordless. I don't use it as much as I thought I would, but it does come in handy at times.
I will be getting a Flexineb next week myself. Would love tips/tricks or anything anyone has learned with using yours!

No tricks to it!!! Its plug and play. I love that I can put it on and walk my horse around while its nebulizing. When they are walking they take deeper breaths.
I bought the Flexineb, so far I really like it. Very easy to use and both my mares seem to like their treatments. I am using Saline solution and I've purchased the Silvaplex.
That's great that you have had the PRO for EIGHT years. It was our very first unit. And we have many still out. On the EquiMist if you EVER have a problem we will work with you. All you have to do is call. We have many still working grear 3 years out. The main issues that happen are owners don't charge with med cup on, thus depleting the battery, not cleaning the med cups correctly or not replacing the med cups when needed. Anything nebulized will in time get stuck in the mesh. We are happy to work with you, all it takes is a call.
I love my SilverHorse system. It's easy and dependable. I use a couple of different silver products and albuterol if needed. It's a good tool to have during our long summers which can be dry one day and moldy the next. Becky is great to work with. Super knowledgeable about her product. Even my nutty horses enjoy it.
