What is Nebulisation? 

Nebulisation is a treatment technique in which tiny spherical droplets of aerosolised medication are generated and inhaled by the patient.

 Why use a Nebuliser? 

A nebuliser device enables the horse owner to easily administer care to their horses airways and lungs. The device incorporates a mask that fits on the nose and a technological means of generating a fine mist. Old style technologies are based on a compressor technologies which plug into the main supply. Newer technologies are ultrasonic devices, while the most up-to-date devices (e.g. Flexineb) incorporate a vibrating piezo component. Each of these technologies can generate the fine mist which ensures the mist goes directly into the airways and ultimately the lungs.
