Ocala Breeders’ Feed & Supply cares about the health of your animals. That’s why we carry a large variety of animal health supplies for general care, supplements, and more, including Flair Equine Nasal Strips.
Developed by veterinarians, FLAIR Strips are drug-free, self-adhesive nasal strips that promote optimum health of equine athletes, in all disciplines and every level of competition. The Strips gently support the soft tissues over the nasal passages and reduce airway resistance and improve airflow when your horse needs oxygen most.
The spring-like action in FLAIR Strips supports the soft tissues over the nasal passages to reduce the tissue collapse that occurs in all horses during exercise to make it easier to breathe in oxygen.
When horses breathe hard during exercise, the soft tissue over the nasal passage is sucked in, reducing airway diameter, restricting airflow. The spring-like action in FLAIR Strips gently supports the nasal passages to reduce soft tissue collapse and make breathing easier.
Being able to breathe easier helps horses at all levels of fitness and skill maintain respiratory health and optimum performance. Many riders also report that horses wearing FLAIR Strips are more relaxed and focused.
Horses don’t tire as easily so they can work longer and harder. Horses wearing FLAIR Strips have been shown to use 5-6% less energy when bringing air in during intensive exercise.
The energy conserved by wearing a FLAIR Strip is available to sustain performance longer and potentially reduce the chance of fatigue-related injuries.
Horses wearing FLAIR Strips have been shown to use 5-6% less energy during intensive exercise.
During less intense, longer duration exercise, FLAIR Strips help horses get needed oxygen more efficiently to sustain aerobic exercise.
Supporting the nasal passages during recovery helps horses cool out more quickly.
Leaving a FLAIR Strip on until the horse completely cools down allows the horse to move air more easily. Which also helps the horse conserve energy and cool out more quickly.
PROTECT FROM EXERCISE INDUCED PULMONARY HEMORRHAGE
FLAIR Strips help prevent the fragile pulmonary blood vessels in the lungs from rupturing during exercise.
Resulting in less stress put on the pulmonary blood vessels. Moreover, this helps them from rupturing. Even if a horse doesn’t compete with FLAIR Strips, using them in training will limit the damage occurring to the lungs. Leaving the horse is in the best condition possible for competing.
