Humans are not the only ones that benefit from Halotherapy!


Other land-based breathing animals have a respiratory and lung system similar to that of people.


And, like people, animals and our pets are exposed to the same air we breathe which often contain pollutants, pollen, allergens, airborne diseases and more. They often experience the same issues including inflammation, extra mucus, and restrictive breathing.

There are also unique issues that affect the respiratory systems of some of these animals including dogs and cats.



For example, most of the lower airway conditions in cats are due to non-infectious causes, with inflammatory airway disease associated with allergies or unknown triggers being the most common. Reactive airways result from ongoing irritation. These reactive airways tend to narrow the airways (bronchoconstriction) and produce excess mucus, leading to difficulty breathing, fast breathing, and sometimes, cough and nasal discharge.  Feline Lower Airway Disease (FLAD) is an umbrella term to describe the conditions that lead to lung airway pathology.


Horses have a large lung capacity and often have issues with normal mucociliary clearance and, in fact, there are specific guidelines for measuring this excess mucus, especially with thoroughbred and racehorses.  Horses also face extreme skin conditions from being exposed to wind, dirt, mud, and other factors.
