Equine Haler, inhalation mask
It has been developed specifically for accurate administration of Pharmaceuticals to horses with inflammatory respiratory diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (recurrent airway obstruction - RAO). The Equine Haler is a convenient method of administering all available types of metered dose inhalers (MDI) to horses. The MDI delivers the medicine at a suitable particle size (< 5 microns) for direct distribution to the small airways. The Equine Haler has been developed in Denmark and has been tested at the Centre for Equine Studies, Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, UK. Documented studies show that medication is distributed to the small airway system.
