Clenbuterol for Heaves - time scale?

Hi there,
My horse has recently been diagnosed with heaves. I'm looking for a place to move her to that has better management of dust, hay, etc, but in the time being she's on a daily dose of Clenbuterol (and soon to be on dexamethasone also). The vet didn't tell me how long I should keep her on the Clenbuterol, but my barn manager said that she thinks it's usually just a ten day thing. I emailed my vet to ask, but I'm just wondering how long other people's horses have been on Clenbuterol and/or dexamethasone?

My horse was diagnosed with heaves last month.
He is on Albuterol and Prdenisolne still.
He will be on it until we try and wean him off in October.

For Toby it appears it will be a spring/summer med regimine. You will have to find what works best for your horse.

I very highly recommend joining this Yahoo group:
They have helped me and Toby immensely.
I would also recommend starting a journal.
Taking your horses Respiratory Rate at least twice a day and writing the temp, humidity, med list and RR in the journal.

Heaves is for life. It does not get cured. It does not go away completely.
However it is manageable and they can live a long decent life.
