What? Research shows that supplementing the horses diet with anti-oxidants aids the respiratory system, the blood vessels surrounding the lungs and provides valuable nutritional support. In a recent study of 37 horses feeding RespirAid showed positive benefits in just 7 days. RespirAid also includes Vitamin C as Ascorbyl Monophosphate. This is the form of Vitamin C that is highly absorbed in horses, unlike Ascorbic Acid which is commonly used in supplements but very poorly absorbed by horses.
Why? Respiratory stress is common for today's horses. Environmental factors such as stabling conditions, bedding, quality of ventilation, stress, travelling, mixing with other horses and many other contributing elements can all harbour dust and fungal spores which accumulate in and irritate the sensitive lining of the lungs and respiratory tract.
When? RespirAid should be fed on a daily basis to help support a healthy respiratory system. It is also ideal for horses and ponies that are stabled for long periods of time with restricted turnout, or exposed to stressful situations i.e travelling, competition, change of yard or a change in hay and feed.
Instructions for Use and Feeding Guide Level 25ml (21g) scoops per day.
Maintenance – to support respiratory health:
Pony - approximately 250kg1.5
Horse - approximately 500kg2
Large Horse - over 750kg2.5
For horses requiring extra respiratory support: Scoops per day for 10 days*:
Pony - approximately 250kg3
Horse - approximately 500kg4
Large Horse - over 750kg5
If after 10 days respiratory symptoms are improved, reduce to a maintenance dose. Introduce slowly, mix thoroughly with feed and split between meals where possible.
Do not exceed the recommended intake.
