"We have been using Flexineb as a part of our care routine for our horses for several years now. Ensuring their respiratory health is taken care of is as important as making sure their feet are in good order and well prepared. We are happy to be a part of Team Flexineb and know by using the nebuliser, we are ensuring our horses respiratory health is in the best condition it can be all year round, at home, when we are flying to competitions and in a lot of different climates." - Bertram Allen
