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.
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.

Flexineb is a vital component of the treatment protocol for numerous upper and lower respiratory conditions that we see on a day to day basis.
We use the Flexineb on our horses and have had great results with it.
Once in a while you come across a gem of a device, and the Flexineb is certainly the jewel in assisting me with opening the Lungs of my horse The Only One before Cross Country or getting rid of an annoying dust allergy cough in Ravenstar.
I used the Flexineb on Moondice in his preparation for the Galway Hurdle and believe that it was of great benefit to the horse.
When we got to a large international 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 respiratory 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 our equipment which we bring all over the world.

I have been nebulizing horses since the late 1970s but until now I have never been completely happy with the nebulizing equipment available. There have been improvements in recent years but now Nortev has finally developed the ultimate Nebulizer with the Flexineb. To me a product has to satisfy three requirements. They must be affordable, user friendly and most of all work. Flexineb does it all. I have used it on race horses, mares, yearlings and recently a foal with the new foal mask. It is simple to use and the horses relax and seem to enjoy treatment since there is no noise, excessive mist or cumbersome hoses and cords. We now treat all of our racehorses routinely and pre race with silver solution to keep their airways healthy and aid in the control of EIPH and infections and I can’t remember the last to bleed in a race or work. In today’s world where we are constantly looking for more cost effective drug free approaches to treating horses with respiratory issues the Flexineb is invaluable. Anybody with an equine athlete, sale horse or youngster should have one in their tack room. As a veterinarian who both treats and owns TB racehorses and breeding stock I can recommend the Flexineb without reservation.
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 items in the barn!
The Flexineb is super easy to use. We are able to use it on all the horses because it's light, comfortable and quiet. We have seen results in horses that have visible mucus present by helping clear it up. We think it's a great and convincing product.
We have had great results using the Flexineb. Allergies, bleeding or sickness - it clears it all up! It’s very user friendly and the quiet and lightweight design is extremely favourable to the horses we use it on.
With respiratory issues being such a big part of our industry, its so great to have a tool like the Flexineb that can help reduce issues and is so easy to use. I've had mine 5 or 6 years now.
