With my girl, it's all about maintenance. If I let her hooves go for more than 4 weeks without diligent trimming, it's pretty much guaranteed I will have to deal with thrush.

It's all the same, just usually cheaper from the hardware, not for human consumption!

In my very small limited experience, I've found that the best way to get rid of thrush is to build the back of the hoof so the horse is landing heel first......and then get that horse moving around a lot. Thrush just seems to go away once the horse has consistent heel first landings and is moving many miles per week. I should also say that this is my experience with a barefoot hoof....I have no experience with this on a shod hoof.

Though, my experience is in an area with lots of hard ground. I have no experience in the swamps or very wet ground.

^Ah, but you need to get rid of thrush & build up the back of the foot before they'll happily land on their heels... or give the horse laminitis

Oh, No thrush can also be used on Scratches or Rain rot to. One things to, Don't soak or wash the feet before Application. Only pick out the feet.

I like Spectrasan, also known as HoofRX. It's a chemical-free disinfectant that does not harm healthy tissues.

As a preventative, I like ACV. Also all natural and doesn't kill healthy bacteria like bleach will.

I also find that the best thing you can do for your horses feet is pick them every day. It gives them a chance to "breathe" for a bit and you can see any signs of thrush or overgrowth pretty much the moment it happens. That and it helps train the horse to pick up his feet for the farrier.

No-Thrush is also by far most effective in my barn.

Soak w oxine ah. You can buy it on Amazon.

I never trimmed anything and used the plactic-y pet food bags for soaking. It really works wonders.
