Breathe Better. Live Better.
The AeroHippus* chamber enables you to manage your horse’s equine asthma, allergic bronchitis, inflammatory airway disease, recurrent airway obstruction (heaves) and other respiratory conditions with targeted delivery of inhaled medications to the lungs – just like human children. Designed in collaboration with the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, specifically for horses, the AeroHippus* chamber makes using inhaled medications fast, easy and safer than the side effects of prednisone and dexamethasone. The AeroHippus* chamber is designed to help you keep riding and help your horse perform its best.

Make Every Puff Count
Designed specifically for horses, the AeroHippus* chamber helps ensure that your horse gets medication to its lungs, where they need it. And, you save money by not paying for wasted medication.
How it Works
The AeroHippus* Chamber is designed for horses to work with metered dose inhalers (MDIs). The AeroHippus* Chamber captures and holds the medication in the chamber until your horse breathes it in.
Mask keeps a tight seal
Comes with a mask designed for horses that fits tightly over just one nostril, which helps keep them calm and ready for their dose.
Chamber holds the medication
The chamber is designed to hold medication longer for horses that may initially hold their breath, enabling you to puff the medication then position the mask.
Flow-Vu* indicator helps you count breaths
The patented Flow-Vu* indicator shows you that your horse is taking their medication correctly, whether there’s a proper mask seal and how many breaths they’re taking.

How to Use the AeroHippus* Chamber
Equine asthma is treated like asthma in humans – with corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and often bronchodilators to open the airways up during an asthma attack.
Since horses can’t use a puffer or metered dose inhaler the same way humans do, they need a chamber, also called a spacer, with a mask.
There are many ways to help your horse get used to using their inhaler and the AeroHippus* chamber, including using treats. The AeroHippus* chamber also allows you to “puff” the inhaler medication into the chamber away from your horse to avoid making a sound your horse may not understand or like.
Easier for Horse Owners
- Fast treatment times
- Uncomplicated and easy to use
- Well accepted by horses
- Simply puff the medication into the chamber and allow your horse to breathe normally through the mask
- As your horse inhales, the Flow-Vu* indicator moves to give you immediate visual feedback and confidence that your horse is getting the right dose
ALWAYS consult and follow the instructions of your veterinarian before giving your horse any medication! Only use inhalers as prescribed by your veterinarian.
