Breakthrough in nutrition helps horses with respiratory problems

A new respiratory support formula, WINERGY VENTIL-ATEä, is providing a breakthrough for horses at risk from respiratory challenges such as Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO).

Developed as a result of a massive research project conducted by the WALTHAM® Equine Studies Group, in collaboration with the Animal Health Trust (AHT), WINERGY VENTIL-ATEä is the only equine respiratory supplement to have been proven in published scientific trials.

Horses breathe over 70,000 litres of air a day and even more if exercised. A healthy respiratory system is vital for overall well-being, yet a number of environmental factors such as pollens, dusts, atmospheric pollutants and stabling regimens may severely compromise the condition of your horse’s airways. The lungs normally provide natural defences to combat these respiratory hazards including the secretion of mucus and also by the specific production of antioxidants. Work at the AHT in collaboration with WALTHAM® showed that horses with RAO have much lower levels of a key antioxidant than healthy horses.

This research also demonstrated that a unique form of supplementation can help improve lung health by increasing key antioxidant levels.

WINERGY VENTIL-ATEä contains a unique and balanced blend of antioxidants, including vitamin C, which has been scientifically proven to support the horse’s natural lung defences. It may be especially beneficial for horses with compromised respiratory function as well as all stabled horses.

The George Veterinary Group has an equine clinic near Malmesbury, which covers a wide area of Wiltshire. They see hundreds of horses each year and recommend WINERGY VENTIL-ATE™ to support healthy lungs. They said: “The research behind WINERGY VENTIL-ATEä enables us to confidently recommend it as beneficial to those horses at risk of RAO.”
