The Equine Haler is an inhalation device, which has been developed specifically for accurate administration of pharmaceuticals to horses with inflammatory respiratory diseases including equine asthma (RAO = recurrent airway obstruction). The Equine Haler is a convenient method of administering all available types of metered dose inhalers (MDI) to horses. The MDI delivers the medicine at a suitable particle size (< 5 microns) for direct distribution to the small airways. Equine Haler has been tested at the Centre for Equine Studies, Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, UK. One treatment takes 1–2 minutes.
