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 whi is commonly used in supplements but very poorlly 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.

There’s plenty of marketing and claims surrounding feed & supplements but how do you know that what you are feeding is safe and more importantly legal?
When we talk about positive tests in horses people generally associate this just with deliberate doping but this is not the case and many high profile cases have involved feed or supplement contamination.
