Treatment of respiratory disease in horses where it is considered that airway obstruction due to bronchospasm and/or accumulation of mucus is a contributing factor, and improved muco-ciliary clearance is desirable. To be used alone or as adjuvant therapy.
1.Acute, sub-acute and chronic respiratory allergies.
2.Acute, sub-acute and chronic infections where the presence of mucus and/or micro-organisms may stimulate bronchospasm or cause airway obstruction and thus increase airway resistance. For example, bronchitis, bronchiolitis and bronchopneumonia alone, or associated with equine influenza and other viral respiratory diseases.
3.Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
In cases accompanied by bacterial infection the administration of anti microbial agents is recommended.
