Is your horse coughing?

Ola ola,

Let’s start this post with a disclaimer. If your horse is coughing and you don’t know why, you should go to the vet.

Last week the Netherlands decided to become a tropical paradise with 30 degrees and sun everyday. This was all fun and games until Grumpy decided he was going to start coughing his lunges out.

In case you don’t know, coughing is really bad for horses as it can rip the lounges apart or create long lasting issues. It’s therefore important that you deal with the issue quickly. In this case I knew Grumpy didn’t have a virus as he’s had this issue before. When it gets to warm in combination with dust he starts coughing.

Normally I call the vet and get a dose of Ventipulmin, but at the lovely cost of 150 euro all together I was hoping to find something else that would work. A stable mate recommended NAF respiratory boost to me, and I figured that I had nothing to loose so on I went to the shop to buy it.

And it works! Even within two days he was significantly better and now it’s almost gone. For a liter bottle you pay 50 euro which is a lot less then 150. Definitely worth a shot for those with horses that have dust allergies or bronchitis.
