Equipred

The First and Only Licensed Steroid Tablets For Horses

Equipred™ tablets are the only steroid tablets that are licensed for horses. Each tablet contains 50mg prednisolone. The tablet presentation is easily divided into halves or quarters which allows for accurate dosing and enables the dose to be tapered precisely. Equipred™ tablets are licensed for the alleviation of inflammatory and clinical parameters associated with recurrent airway obstruction (RAO/severe asthma) in horses. Prednisolone has been shown in scientific studies to improve lung function in horses with asthma.
