Loosie, what's your opinion on this?
NO THRUSH - The First Ever DRY Equine Treatment. Natural, safe, Results in 3-5 days

I've seen it advertised and after looking around, I've seen mixed reviews. I'm looking more as a preventative as this is the first year I've had trouble with thrush due to all the rain that I'm not going to complain about . So far, I've had great results with Kopertox, but I'm looking for something that's not quite so chemically based.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Afraid it sounds like you know as much as me about it. It looks good and I've heard people swear by it(not that that counts for much, people swear about anything these days!). I have also personally seen amazing results of using that diat.... earth stuff, which is one ingredient. Can't imagine it would really cut it if the horse is in a wet environment, which is my main winter problem. But while I don't know all the ingredients of this stuff, sounds a lot safer than something like Koppertox, which I'd use very sparingly, if at all on frogs.

I have been using No Thrush for about a year now. First to treat some small problem areas and now mostly as a preventative. As far as I can tell it works great, and I live in western NY so I've had my fair share of mud this year. I apply it to the frog and rub it in really good.

I've actually found that putting it on and then letting my horse out in the pasture, even if it's wet it stays in there pretty good for at least a day. The wet kind of turns it into a paste.

Word of warning though, when you apply it and rub it in, if there's any moisture on the hoof the powder will turn a blood red color. Don't worry, your horse isn't bleeding! I may have freaked out the first time that happened...

Used kopertox for 2 weeks and got nothing. Used 50-50 vinegar once and thrush was gone the next day. you can also use pure vinegar, it wont hurt the horse.

I really like this No thrush idea. I think I might try that. Thanks so much guys! I have been using 1/4 bleach 3/4 water, that didn't do anything. Used koopercare that didn't do anything. Scrubbed their hooves with water and anti bacterial soap, that did nothing. I have tried Apple cider Vinegar too. Nothing is working at all. So I will try the no thrush and see how it is.

Horses are scared of two things. Things that move and things that don't

Try 1/2 strength bleach. Durasole works for me, alternating with the bleach.

Oh yea. If her frogs look like they do in the picture, you'll never get rid of thrush. Those frogs need to be really really cleaned up and the areas on the sides of the frogs trimmed back as well, the foot needs to be open and not have little niches for bugs to hide.

I like the No Thrush, and use it as preventive/mild (particularly in the winter where we get melting-mud-freezing cycles). But for my money, Pete's Goo has been the best treatment for my mare: 1/2 triple antibiotic and 1/2 athlete's foot cream. During the mud season, I used that almost every day and then would use No Thrush every few days or in the evening when she was going in the dry stall and out of the mud for the overnight hours.

i used that No thrush. had a problem getting the powder out at first, had to cut the spout larger .
it got rid of it fairly quick, and did not get the smell or stains. there is also a product its a hoof sterilizer .. cannot recall the name.. not cheap but it worked well also . i could swab it all over the hoof, bottom and front , coronet band.. has a dauber in it..

Ha! I agree with that complaint and find that really annoying. Especially if the tip of the spout touches anything wet in the hoof, it gobs up immediately. But it's an easy fix.

Going to echo everyone else. Bad angles, there is quite a bit of bruising, and thrush. All of that would make a horse very sore, and come up lame.

Thankfully feet are easy to rehabilitate. Just takes time and the right farrier.
