We use this as an airway supplement for a barrel horse that has bled when running. Most recent airway scope revealed no bleeding. Love this product!

Airway EQ provides daily support for respiratory function, containing comprehensive ingredient support for healthy soft tissue throughout the respiratory tract and helps promote a natural immune response to seasonal allergies.
Horses challenged with respiratory deficiencies may benefit from the addition of ingredients such as MSM, Spirulina, Hawthorne, Grape Seed Extract, N- Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC), Vitamins A and K to support a natural inflammatory response, respiratory health and immune function. Managing allergies and EIPH requires daily actions to help strengthen the airways and make breathing easier. The easier it is for a horse to breathe, the less strain there is on the lungs.
- Support Lung/Soft Tissue
- Seasonal Allergy/Immune Support
- Respiratory/Cellular Response
- Blood Vessel/Capillary Function
MSM: (Methylsulfonylmethane) Assists body to produce its own internal antioxidants which helps support natural inflammatory response by providing protection against oxidative stress. It is a great source of sulfur, which plays an important role in maintaining the health of collagen, cartilage, hooves, hair and joint fluid.
Spirulina: A powerful antioxidant that helps support the immune system and plays a significant role in supporting a natural inflammatory response. Has been shown to help support concerns associated with inflammation of the nasal passage triggered by allergens.
Citrus Bioflavonoids: Heseperidin, rutin, naringin, quercetin, all bioflavanoids important for soft tissue health and maintaining normal blood pressure, which aids in overall lung health. Helps support immune system health and capillary strength.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is an antioxidant that plays a role in helping combat harmful free radicals. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect the tissues of the body and also important in the production of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments.
Hawthorne: helps support healthy blood vessel and capillary function.
Grape Seed Extract (GSE) is rich in antioxidants to help support a healthy inflammatory response and cardiovascular health. It appears that the antioxidants in grape seed extract work cooperatively with Vitamin E to help neutralize free radicals.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine: NAC helps replenish glutathione levels, supporting a healthy inflammatory response in lung and bronchial tissue.
Vitamin K: supports vascular health, healthy bones, cognitive function, immune system and respiratory health.
Vitamin A is well known for its role in supporting healthy vision, immune function, and skin/coat. However, it is also needed for respiratory health, reproduction, soft tissue and normal skeletal development in young growing horses and exercising horses that are remodeling bone.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that help promote healthy digestive function and support a healthy immune system. Often referred to as ‘good bugs’ they help break down ingredients/contents that the body normally can't, and help inhibit ‘bad bugs’ from growing.
Is this okay for a pregnant mare?
MVP: The safe use of this supplement in pregnant or lactating mares has not been specifically tested. We always recommend seeking your veterinarian’s advice before adding any new supplements or making changes to your mare’s diet.
I have a young performance gelding in training who was showing some real issues with dust sensitivities. Even when the arena didn't have noticeable dust he would cough excessively during an easy warm up. A scope was performed showing no abnormalities so I ordered Air-Way EQ. Since starting Air-Way EQ he rarely coughs. Before, he would cough so hard that I would have to stop riding he was coughing so hard and for so long. If he does cough now, it is one or two coughs and he is done. Even during the dry months of summer when things did get very dusty, he did not have issues. I started my open mare on it after seeing the improvement with my gelding. I definitely recommend Air-Way EQ.
I have had two of my horses on Air-way EQ 2 summers in a row in Minnesota. Both of these horses have experienced heavy/labored breathing and a heave response at points during summer where we would have typically treated with steroids. Both horses did not use steroids at all last summer and we are having a similar season this year. I ran out of Airway in June and the one week that we were out, the mare had big welts from bug bites and as soon as we were back on Airway she had no further welts. I really believe this product helps with not only respiratory support, but also with reducing the response to seasonal allergens and environmental triggers that would normally cause an immune response.
I have a gelding who has notoriously terrible allergies, year round. I have owned him for 9 years and he has always had gunk around his eyes because of the allergies. Within two weeks of starting him on this supplement, his eyes have cleared up and he is breathing so much better! I am a firm believer in this and will be a lifetime customer!
My futurity filly has had coughing issues since an illness as a foal. Vets gave me all kinds of solutions. This worked and she is a different horse with good energy. Grateful to have found this product. Responsible Horsemanship
Last year my barrel horse was diagnosed with a respiratory condition. My vet had me giving her spectuss powder 2x a day, doxy 2x a day, a two week pred treatment at the start of every year and her nebulizer with albuterol before riding every single time with air power or liquid albuterol. This year, I started Airway EQ. I don’t give her anything other than this supplement. Within one week of it, she no longer needed her pred to start the season, she does not get doxy or spectuss anymore and I only give her nebulizer on extremely hot days at barrel races. I feed AIRWAY EQ once in the AM, and I rode her the other day with no air power or nebulizer and she didn’t cough or struggle to breathe on a vigorous endurance ride up hills and mountains for 45 minutes. I CANNOT say enough good things about this product and I will never take my mare off of it.
My 23-year-old horse has struggled with a respiratory issues that don't seem to go away. We have tried everything, but this is the only thing that has helped, she now can work better and doesn't get winded or have to slow down as much for breaks.
I have used Airway EQ for two horses with great success. Both arrived at my barn from dusty environments with a slight tendency to cough. Within a couple of weeks with good ventilation, mold-free hay, and Airway EQ-all are doing great. I feel that the product is effective.
I have struggled for a couple years helping my mare and this is the only product that helps.
