Ventipulmin granules contains Clenbuterol, a sympathomimetic drug which cause the airways to dilate and helps clear them of mucus. This improves the horse’s breathing by decreasing the amount of nasal discharge and coughing. Ventipulmin granules can be beneficial in horses with hypersensitivity to dust and mould spores due to its anti-allergic and mildly anti-inflammatory action. It also activates mucociliary clearance, making it easier for the horse to expel excessive mucus.
