Breathe Better. Live Better.
Is Your Horse’s Wheeze Keeping You from Riding?
The Aerohippus* Chamber allows you to manage you horse’s respiratory conditions. For example, equine asthma, allergic bronchitis, inflammatory airway disease and recurrent airway obstruction (heaves). All of these are just some respiratory problems horses have.
This chamber targets delivery of inhaled medication to the lungs. Additionally, its design comes in partnership with the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. Therefore, the Aerohippus is specific to horses.
It provides an easier, faster, and safer option than the side effects of prednisone and dexamethasone. The Aerohippus chamber’s design helps your horse perform to their maximum potential. so you can keep on riding.
Make Every Puff Count
With the design being made specifically for horses, the Aerohippus chamber guarantees that medication reaches the lungs. It’s exactly where your horses need it. Furthermore, you save on drug costs by not paying for wasted medication.
How it Works
The Aerohippus Chamber works with metered dose inhalers (MDIs). Thus, the chamber will capture and hold the medication in it until your horse breathes it in.
- Tight mask seal – ensure a proper seal to avoid getting medication on skin or eyes.
- Chamber holding medication – chamber has been designed to hold medication longer. Therefore, it helps those who can get in distress when taking medication or need extra time.
- Flow-Vu* indicator counting breathes – this indicator will show you that medication is being taken correctly. Additionally, that you have a proper mask seal and how many breathes are being taken
How to use the AeroHippus Chamber
Equine asthma uses the same treatment humans with asthma do. For example, corticosteroids and bronchodilators reduce inflammation and open airways up during an asthma attack.
Horses can’t use a puffer or metered dose inhaler the way humans do. Thus, they need a chamber (sometimes referred to as a spacer) with a mask.
The Aerohippus chamber will allow you to “puff” the inhaler medication away from your horse. Also , it decreases any chance of scaring your horse by a sound they may not understand or like. There are many ways to help your horse become familiar to using the inhaler. For example, treats are a common option
