You mentioned in another post about the use of Ventipulmin coupled with Banamine, SMZ's and Regumate to combat placentitis in a mare. What role does the Ventipulmin play?

When this post was first placed in 2001, it was thought that the use of Clenbuterol (Ventipulmin) in the mare that was experiencing placentitis would be beneficial in preventing abortion owing to its ability to inhibit uterine contractions. Subsequent research and personal communication with the researcher has shown that the inhibitory effect is very transient (+/- 2 hours) and that after 3 treatments there is no effect seen at all. Consequently this treatment has now been dropped from the protocol.
