What is Immuno-San?
Immuno-San is an inhalable solution specially formulated to support the respiratory system of performance horses. Completely natural and non-testing (FEI) legal, making it ideal for use in competition horses. Ideal for all horses recovering from respiratory illness, or those who want to prevent respiratory stress when travelling or regularly competing & exposed to virus’.
Immuno-San is a unique combination of high grade essential oils, scientifically proven to support the Immune System, and has demonstrated excellent results in clinical testing.
How effective is Immuno-San?
Field Trial Study Courtesy of Dr Emmanuelle van Erck, DVM, PhD, ECEIM.
A recent study conducted on the efficiency of Immuno-San demonstrated significant reduction in TW & BAL neutrophils with Immuo- San (IS) use in comparison to other common combined therapies – inhalable Corticoids & Anti Microbials (CAM) & other inhaled Essential Oil products (MY)
All horses showed a decrease in BAL neutrophils (i.e. indicative of lung inflammation), as expected with a corticosteroid treatment, however the decrease in TW neutrophils is significantly more important in horses receiving Immuno-San. One of the reasons why neutrophils would remain above normal range in the TW is the persistence or the development of infectious micro-organisms. Indeed, use of corticosteroids can increase the risk of secondary bacterial or fungal infections. Examining the results of the bacteriology and mycology cultures in all 3 groups, the combined treatment with Immuno-San demonstrated that it can prevent the development of infection in IAD horses treated with inhaled corticosteroids.
When is Immuno-San Prescribed?
For horses in work and competition, where horses are exposed to respiratory diseases such as IAD andinfection, Immuno-San is a highly efficient and protective, non-doping solution. * (FEI)
