Dealing with respiratory problems can be stressful, especially since they can impact overall health and performance. In addition to veterinary care and a management plan, the right combination of ingredients in an equine respiratory supplement can also help support healthy lung function in horses with respiratory issues, so you and your horse can enjoy your rides!
When looking at a respiratory supplement, there are certain ingredients to look for. MSM provides support for a normal response to inflammation throughout the body, including in the respiratory tract. Meanwhile, grape seed extract, super oxide dismutase, vitamin C, and bioflavonoids offer support for respiratory cell health. Finally, there is N-acetyl cysteine, which has been shown to help protect airway tissues from seasonal respiratory conditions.
SmartPak’s SmartBreathe Ultra Pellets provides comprehensive support to help soothe and maintain your horse’s airways. This equine respiratory supplement offers those ingredients, along with spirulina, a freshwater blue-green algae that has been reported to help horses prone to respiratory issues, and DHA, a specific type of omega-3 from fish oil, which was shown in a recent study to provide benefits to horses with airway syndromes.
