Equine Rescue Airway Kit


For use due to nasal swelling caused by snake bites, bee/wasp sting, allergic reactions or any event which cause the nasal passages to swell and prevent your equine from breathing. These are combination packs of our standard rescue airway tubes. Three different selections of sizes are available to address the different sizes of horses, ponies, mules, and miniatures in a barn or personal residence setting. Easy to have on hand, these tubes will sustain the airway opening in your animal as swelling occurs due to allergic or traumatic swelling of the nasal passages. Horses cannot breath through their mouth and require an open nasal passageway to prevent suffocation.

Equines are obligate nose breathers - they cannot breath through their mouth. This makes facial and nose swelling a life-threatening emergency due to the possibility of suffocation if the soft tissues of the nasal passages swell.

Each kit includes:
Product instructions
2 Airway tubes (one for each nostril)
3 1/2 oz lubricant packets

Sizes available:
Extra Small: Foals, Small Miniature horses - Tested on 150# equine
Small: Ponies, Larger miniature horses 300# and above - tested on a 275# equine
Medium: most ponies and small horses (i.e.: Arabians, Quarter ponies, etc.)
Large: Average pleasure horse - tested on a 1000# equine (i.e.: QH, Thoroughbred, Morgan, etc.)
Extra Large: Draft horse, Draft X, Large Warmblood or similar type horses

(Note: if unsure, go with the smaller size, it is better to be able to provide some air rather than no air at all to your horse. If the tube is too large you will not be able to help your horse in the event of this type of emergency.)
The tubes only need to pass into the area of the nasal passage that is surrounded by bone.
Consult a veterinarian as soon as possible

(PLEASE NOTE: All sizes are the same price)
