Best answer yet: manage her condition without the meds!
I have 3 horses with ADVANCED heaves (I'm talking barely able to walk around the outdoor arena, can't eat, wheezing so badly) in our herd who are COMPLETELY symptom-free, and each became so within days if moving here. It's 110% due to living conditions.
Outdoors 24/7, fed their hay at least 3x's daily - in a spread-out fashion.
Round bales and stall living are your asthmatic horse's demise!
Slow feeders are also a great tool, as they keep your horse's nose OUT of the hay.
