Flexineb® is a portable equine nebulizer trusted by equine professionals around the world for fast, safe and effective transfer of medication for respiratory conditions in horses. It operates silently and without the inconvenience of cumbersome hoses and electrical cords.
Around the world, horses of all disciplines, breeds and ages are challenged and limited by respiratory problems including but not limited to RAO, IAD and EIPH. While some horses are genetically predisposed to these issues, others are impacted by changes in the season, frequent travel or a pesky allergy. In the past, veterinarians, trainers and owners have treated these issues orally or through injections. Today, the Flexineb® offers a safe, affordable and simple alternative for treating these respiratory conditions with less side effects than traditional treatment.
How does it work? With state-of-the-art components and an unparalleled design, the Flexineb® produces a very fine mist of aerosolized drug at the perfect particle size for direct delivery and maximum effectiveness. It has been proven in veterinary clinics and barns around the globe in treatments with antibiotics, bronchodilators, corticosteroids, mucolytics and natural oils. Treatment is silent, fast, worry-free and highly effective.
Respiratory problems in horses are frequently the cause of poor performance. The most frequently occurring lower respiratory tract disorders are Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO, or "heaves"), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) and Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage (EIPH, or "bleeding"). Typically, their treatment includes systemic administration of drugs orally or through injections. However, administration via inhalation through horse nebulizer masks is now considered to be a viable alternative for the treatment of respiratory disorders (including breathing, airway or lung problems). Flexineb is an easy-to-use delivery device that produces a very fine mist of aerosolized drug or natural therapy solution, enabling this method of treatment for the horse.
There are three Flexineb E3 Mask sizes available:
-Foal / Pony Size: will fit sizes from foals/small ponies to yearlings
-Standard / Thoroughbred Size: will fit 2 year old Thoroughbred to large Warmblood breeds
-X-Large Size: only available on special request and will fit the largest of horses
Mask: The mask and its components can be disinfected using the likes of Accel TB or Steri-7™ without having any adverse effect on the materials.
Nebulizer: We recommend cleaning the nebulizer with clean warm water and dish washing soap.
Wash the mask in clean warm water and dish washing liquid and rinse off with clean water. For a more thorough cleaning, dismantle the mask components and wash them individually. To clean the nebulizer, put a few drops of dish washing liquid and clean warm water in the medication cup, close the cap and shake it. Gently squeeze the cap to push warm water through the mesh screen. Rinse out afterwards with clean warm water and shake dry. It is essential that the water is clean, otherwise it may clog the mesh. DO NOT USE WELL WATER.
