How to administer NostrilVet
Remove cap, attach applicator. Test the bottle first by squeezing the bottle away from yourself. Test the pressure needed to administer an ideal dose, which is approximately a 30cm plume of powder.
Stand sideways to the horse, put your right arm under the horse’s neck and place your right hand over the top of the horse’s nose, which enables you to get the horse in a firm but gentle headlock. Or if possible for additional safety and ease of application have a second person to assist you, this way your assistant can hold the horse’s head leaving both your hands free to administer the product.
Test for horse’s breathing pattern, either with your spare hand if you have an assistant, or if administering alone with the back of your hand. When you feel the horse exhaling, place the NostrilVet applicator into a nostril and squeeze as soon as the horse begins to inhale.
Wait to feel the breathing pattern once more so that you apply to the second nostril using the same method. Ensure the powder is not sprayed into the Diverticulum nasi, i.e. the fake nostril which all horses have.
If the horse is proving difficult, get your assistant to distract the horse with a handful of feed, or if administering alone secure the horse in its stable and divert its attention using a bucket of feed. While distracted apply NostrilVet.
NostrilVet is natural and contains no active ingredients. The key to getting the best out of NostrilVet is to make sure you maintain a constant layer of powder inside the nostril cavitation.
You should administer NostrilVet to your horse before exposing it to any environments containing airborne allergens, for example; a stable or field on a high pollen count day. Apply 15 minutes before feeding the horse with hay.
NostrilVet can be used daily, in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. NostrilVet should ideally be administered twice per day, or three times per day if/when symptoms are severe. If your horse exhibits symptoms when exercising apply 15 minutes before riding.
