BreathePlus *Our top-of-the-range respiratory support
In domesticity, the equine respiratory system is continually being challenged from stable environments, school surfaces, dusty bedding and feed.
For significantly compromised respiration, and especially if bacterial or viral infection takes hold, alleviating the symptoms, addressing respiratory distress and supporting immunity is vital to enable the immune system to fight the pathogens.

- 9.6.21 - Hi Carol. Just an update on Indi, and I can confidently say the BreathePlus has worked wonders. After just 1 week I noticed improvents, no chesty cough or snotty nose , even when she was stabled for 5 days due to bad weather. We've walked out in hand and she is like a different horse. She normally struggles with hills due to her breathing but she has been marching up them without even the slightest struggle and with plenty of energy. Really really pleased with the product. It smells divine and she loves it. Thank you so much. I will highly recommend you. Roxanne & Indi
- Dear Carol, I received the BreathePlus about 10 days ago, I began giving it to Panos straight away and can tell you that he is well on the way to recovery, I cannot believe how fast he is improving. Today he was chasing Sirocco around the field and didn't cough once, once this really hot weather is over we will be able to get them out for a ride again. Many thanks, Vivienne in Corfu
- Excellent results from Breatheplus, my 20-year-old mare's snotty nose has cleared up and she has got her 'sparkle' back. Highly recommended. Thank you.
- My mare has had a cough for 3 years and struggled to canter stemmed from a virus she had, she would always cough when we went into trot, since she has had a 4 week course of this she has not coughed again and much happier to canter. very happy, Thank you. ( she would also stop to rub her nose on her leg, this has also stopped).
- Thanks for the BreathePlus. It arrived on the Friday afternoon and I gave it to him Fri and Sat in a single feed, I rode him Sunday, I can't believe how quickly it has worked and I have been telling all my horsey friends about it.
- Hi - have only been using BreathePlus for 5 days, what a difference it has made. She had previously been on Ventipulmin which didn't work but this has! She's perfect when ridden now- amazing!!
