HOW DOES IT WORK?
Pulmonary haemorrhage or "bleeding" experienced by equine athletes following demanding physical exertion is a problem that has plagued the business of racing horses since its inception. It is primarily due to the escape of blood cells into the lungs from the capllaries where the exchange of gas occurs.
PulmonAID contains Lecithin (a source of inositol, choline and B vitamins), vitamin A, chlorophyll & calcium which help to maintain cell membranes and strengthen the walls of body cells and capillaries in animals. They also play a role in the correct functioning of mucous membranes.
HOW IS IT USED?
After a horse has suffered a bleeding attack, spell it in the paddock for at least 8 - 10 weeks (at least 12 weeks after a severe bleed).
The very first day the horse comes back into the stable after spelling, commence feeding 60g (2 level scoops) per 450kg bodyweight per day of PulmonAID.
For the first 5 weeks of feeding PulmonAID the horse should not be subject to strenuous exercise.
This allows the important nutrients in PulmonAID (Lecithin, Chlorophyll, Vitamins A, E & D3, Calcium etc.) time to build up to sufficient levels to aid lung capillary wall strength.
Four days prior to each race or trial, increase the dossage to 120 grams per 450kg bodyweight per day (4 level scoops).
Where possible reduce the amount of dust in the stable and in the feed.
Avoid swimming known bleeders.
Make sure the horse is well warmed-up prior to hard work.
When used in this manner, results have shown over an 80% success rate at helping to prevent a rebleed.
