Respiratory function is crucial to your horse’s performance. Reduced respiratory capacity will impair performance and reduce the fitness of a horse. Feed supplements are available for the respiratory system, the lungs, the trachea, the throat and the pharynx that help support your horse’s respiratory needs. Spray products can also be used to improve your horse’s environment. Audevard proposes a range of medicines for the respiratory system.
Equine respiratory comfort
Your horse’s environment can affect his or her respiratory comfort. Breathing can become more difficult in the winter when it is cold, but also in spring or summer due to dust or pollen. The discomfort causes horses to wheeze, reducing their capacities and performance when working. The feed supplements, syrups and spray products in the Audevard respiratory comfort range have been developed by vets and contain ingredients that support your horse’s respiratory system: essential oils, eucalyptus, garlic, nigella, lemon, rosemary, paperbark, pine, thyme, terpineol. Audevard proposes a range of medicines for the respiratory system: Dilaterol containing clenbuterol (selective beta-2 sympathomimetic agent, SPC), Thioveol containing thenoic acid (other systemic medicines for obstructive respiratory diseases, SPC).
High-risk seasons for horses
Your horse can be vulnerable to environmental attacks from bacteria, viruses and parasites. This can be exacerbated by factors such as cold temperatures in winter, strenuous training and living with other horses, all factors that can promote a loss of fitness and weakened immunity. The nutritional supplements in Audevard’s high-risk season range have been developed by vets and contain ingredients that stimulate and boost your horse’s immune system: Glucafeed, Yea Sacc (Saccharmoyces cerevisiae), vitamins (A, C, E), selenium, echinacea.
Your horse’s lungs can be put under a lot of strain during effort. The pulmonary blood vessels are fragile in horses and can burst, causing bleeding. The feed supplements in the Audevard effort range have been developed by vets and contain ingredients that support your horse’s respiratory effort: red vine, sweet clover, Orthosiphon, horse chestnut, dandelion.
