Anyone been given Dilaterol by their vet for their horse? Just curious really, I've been given it for Chloe, apparently they don't use Ventapulmin any longer? Anyways, I can't decide if it's working or not! Going to have a chat with vet later this week as I'll have finished the bottle by then - just don't want to waste money if it isn't doing the trick - wondering if people generally use more than one bottle? It's not cheap at £40 - so thought I would ask on here. Thanks

No we had the Ventapulmin for Charlie during the summer - hope it works for you - the Ventapulmin did for us. as you say nothings cheap is it when its prescription.

No, a fellow livery was given ventapulmin this summer for her horse, but apparantly if they use it a lot, they become immune to it and it stops working. So will be interesting to see if this works for you - I don't think the ventapulmin was cheap either?

Mystique had ventapulmin for 2 months and it worked great but she came off it when she came back up north with me as her probs were brought on in the area and all settled once home by the sea.
Havnt heard of the new one been used so cant offer any advice but hope it works,keep us updated x

Thanks both - I really do hope it helps her - though I have a feeling she won't be 100 per cent better until spring when she's back out for much longer. Atm because of her mud fever and because they beg to come in, they are only out from 8.30 am until 4pm, they simply won't stay out longer.

Shadow had a two week course of ventipulmin which worked out at £63 a tub, so tbh, if they are meant to have the same results with a cheaper drug i'd try it and see. If it doesn't work, then there are other alternatives (discussed with vet at time of treatment at least 5 other ways to treat the problem)..

Yes, Buddy had an adverse reaction to it, colicky, sweating up. I have a full bottle of it here used twice if you want it! It's yours at a huge discount if you want it, Was given to him this summer so is new stock.

Lol this is quite an old thread! We've had Ventapulmin again since - I think our old vets were either pulling the wool over my eyes and didn't have it in stock or they just had some of the dilaterol they wanted to dispense!

Well, Ventilpulmin has always been in demand. Not many people would resort to Dilaterol if they have the better option.
There both the same drug clenbuterol hydrochloride, just different brand names, so there is zero negative to using Dilatrol instead of Ventilpulmin.

Well I didn’t know that! I was given it up here, so they must still manufacture it then. (Ventspulmin I mean)
