Global Voices of Flexineb®

"The most important aspect about Flexineb® is the fact that it is a self-contained, very easy to use and tolerated brilliantly by horses. Hence you're unlikely to get treatment failure with such a simple and effective product."
Dr. Martin Thunig
Director of Internal Medicine at Equine Clinic Leichlingen, Germany
"Here at our Equine Clinic Leichligen, the Flexineb® is being used successfully on foals and on grown up horses for the treatment of respiratory diseases. Handling the device and medicating is easy, as well as the cleaning and disinfecting process. What is also very captivating is the robust corpus of the inhalation mask, because it won't break even when being used wth an uncooperative patient."
Professional Equine Pysiotherapist, Germany
"As a professional physiotherapist for horses for more than 15 years, experience daily, that horses suffer more and more frequently from chronic respiratory disorders. Initially many of those horses don't cough at all or just a little, but carry already solid mucus/phlegm deep in their lungs. In my opinion, next to enhancing the species-appropriate conditions, inhaling is the best therapy. Until a few years ago all inhalation devices came with a long flexible tube, which was a cause of stress for many horses. Thanks to Flexineb®, even customers with fearful/nervous horses have no difficulty of letting their animals inhale."

"I am absolutely amazed at how much my pony improved this winter since using the Flexineb®. I acquired my beloved pony Robin in 2009 because his airway disease had become difficult to deal with. He has been managed well with environmental changes until this year when it became evident he needed more. The Flexineb® has literally changed Robin’s life. It’s easy to use, silent, and very well tolerated. My pony is happy and healthy today because of it. I would recommend this product to anyone with a horse suffering from recurrent airway obstruction."

"We recently started using the Flexineb® product in our practice and are so impressed with the ease of use and how quietly the system operates. All types of horses have tolerated treatments well and owners are pleasantly surprised to see how comfortable their horses are during treatments. This product has changed the way we approach respiratory cases."

"I have used the Flexineb® adult mask in a few horses with pneumonia and I was impressed with how well it works and how silent it is. The horses tolerate it very well and it is much faster than what I had used before."
"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."
"We have been using Flexineb on our horses for several years now, and know first hand how important it is to ensure every detail is taken care of when it comes to our horses. Travelling to shows, and places where lots of horses are coming from lots of different barns, can expose our horses to respiratory virus’, and that can impact their performance for quite a while if they pick something up. Using Flexineb regularly, we are always confident our horses are getting the gold standard of care for their respiratory health."
Team Fuchs & Head Show Groom
"We at Team Martin Fuchs have been using Flexineb® products for a number of years and feel they help enormously in our sports results and general well-being of our horses. With long hours spent travelling to shows by road, sea & air and constantly changing stable environments the Flexineb® nebuliser gives the horses that extra help to ensure their airways are as clear and healthy as possible- when needed most and we are confident it makes a difference in those milliseconds between winning and losing ! Thank you @flexineb for your trust and ongoing support of Team Fuchs."
"We have been working with Flexineb for over 4 years now and really we only have great things to say about their team and of course their great products. My Horses do not leave home without the Flexineb nebulizers. They are really efficient, very practical, easy to use and most importantly, my horses all look quite relaxed when using them. We travel every week to shows around the world, with different climates and this of course may sometimes impact their respiratory system. Making them feel at their best is my top priority and I am convinced Flexineb is a great part of this. I am really thankful to them for always supporting my Team and I highly recommend everyone out there to try their products.
"I have been using the flexineb nebulisers for a number of years now and couldn’t fault them. They are a revolutionary piece of equipment that enables me to deliver natural therapies and nebulised medications directly to the airways of the horse. They are particularly effective with horses who have wind or breathing issues but I use the nebuliser with all my horses, right up to five star! It really is a super piece of equipment and a fantastic addition to my yard. It’s so lightweight and portable it’s also brilliant to bring with me when I’m away at both national and international events. It really is a fundamental part of their care routine. The battery life is fantastic and the fast cup means I can easily and speedily nebulise all my horses before they go cross country at a one day event and I tend to use the nebuliser before all phases at an international. I love how easy to use and easy to clean they are and all my horses love getting nebulised. It gives me great confidence using the nebuliser, knowing I have done everything possible for my horses. I would highly recommend."
Top 100 FEI National Showjumper, Italy
"When we got to a large national competition, having been traveling a lot on the continent and competition circuit, I found Castallo Z had a dry cough from all the environmental and temperature changes he was being put through. The travel by road and air can take its toll on the resiratory system. Two treatments with Flexineb® and he was himself again. We went on to win the jump off in Grand Prix for the Italian Team and he has been in great form since. As he is a stallion he does a lot of calling to the mares in the stables also. Using Flexineb® with just saline has helped him with his sore throat and keeps his lungs in perfect condition. He is an elite athlete after all! We would not be without our Flexineb® E2, it is an essential part of out equipment which we bring all over the world."
"Flexineb is an essential part of our program to keep our performance horses competing at their best. When we are traveling in the summer, we use Flexineb to help deal with allergies as well as adjust to any temperature or climate changes. it is effective and user friendly. Since our horse's respiratory health is a priority, Flexineb has become an important piece of equipment in our program."
Irish Racehorse Trainer
"The Flexineb® is the best thing I have had as an aid to my horses! It is a crucially important piece of equipment and so easy to use."
Professional Eventing Rider
"We’re often travelling long journeys and staying in temporary stables which, not only is it a high volume of horses coming together with a potential for virus’, but also don’t always have the greatest airflow. It’s such a game-changer to have Flexineb as part of our regular routine. I know that I can ensure my horses respiratory health is maintained as well and as importantly as their soundness- keeping those airways clean and clear no matter the air conditions, the travel or stabling. For top performance in any phase, the importance of the respiratory system is everything. So commonly we underestimate the affect that breathing and lung capacity has on our horses wellbeing & ultimately-performance. The natural products like Immunosan, do wonders physically, but our horses love it and they feel calm, relaxed and ready to perform after their Flexineb."
Professional Event Rider
"I used the Flexineb® on Portersize Just a Jiff last summer in the run up to the European Eventing Championships. Jiff sometimes gets a dry cough when he travels a lot and the Flexineb® is the best device to get rid of the cough."
Professional Barrel Racer
“I enjoy using my Flexineb nebulizer when on the rodeo trail because I know that even after many hours in the trailer and staying in different environments, my horses lungs and respiratory systems will stay clean and healthy all the time, ensuring they will be ready to make a run.”
Sir Mark Todd
Voted Rider of the 20th century by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports
"Without the Flexineb®, it’s possible I would not have made it to Burghley or finished in 6th place. Leonidas had a lower airway infection leading up to Burghley and using the Flexineb® every day helped clear up the problem. The Flexineb® was very easy to use and the horse was not upset by it at all. I now use it on all of my horses after long trips to help clear away any mucus that has accumulated. It is a very useful addition to our training program."
Barrel Racer | Rhode Island
"I absolutely love my Flexineb machine, for a variety of reasons but the three that stick out to me the most are the following: The Flexineb is the only unit that is battery operated which I have found to be a huge advantage at rodeos where I didn’t bring a generator, or with horses that get nervous and feel more at ease to walk around while they get nebulized. It is also silent, which is perfect for nervous or young horses, or even ones that just haven’t had a treatment before. I feel at ease knowing that my horses are using a Flexineb, which reaches farther down than other machines that I’ve tried in the past! I have personally seen the difference it has made in horses with allergies, and has helped bleeders. The ease of use, and peace of mind makes Flexineb one of my favorite products in the barn!"
Leading Irish Racehorse Trainer
"I have been using the Flexineb® on my top horses and I have definitely seen a difference in their work and performance. It’s a great tool for breaking up mucus and clearing out the horse’s respiratory system."

"Roger is one of my top barrel horses and he enjoys the Flexineb® system for his breathing treatments. Many people ask if he gets nervous with it, but if anything he gets more relaxed when the Flexineb® is on him."

"I used the Flexineb® on Moon Dice in his preparation for the Galway Hurdle and believe that it was of great benefit to the horse."
