Ventipulmin is used for the treatment of respiratory disease in horses where airway obstruction due to bronchospasm and/or accumulation of mucus is a contributing factor, and improved mucociliary clearance is desirable. Ventipulmin can be used alone or as adjuvant therapy.
1.Acute, sub-acute and chronic infections where the presence of mucus and/or micro-organisms may stimulate bronchospasm or cause airway obstruction and thus increase airway resistance. For example, bronchitis, bronchiolitis and bronchopneumonia alone, or associated with equine influenza and other viral respiratory diseases. 2.Acute, sub-acute and chronic respiratory allergies. 3.Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
In cases accompanied by bacterial infection the administration of antimicrobial agents as well as Ventipulmin is recommended.
