My farrier came last night and took care of my mare. He said her front hooves are extremely dry and her back hooves have a mild case of thrush. He recommended thrush buster but I can't find it locally. Is there another treatment I could use? Thanks
There are a lot of thrush products available on the market: Farnam thrush treatment, Mane N Tail Pro-Tect Thrush Treatment, Coopertox, etc. Most of these products should do the job. I live on a dairy farm and my farrier also recommended I could use Dry Cow or Tomorrow for treatment of thrush, which can be purchased at a local tractor supply, feed mill, etc. Good luck!
There is always some product available for the treatment of thrush at your local co-op/feed store/tack store/etc. If all else fails, you can get a bottle from your vet (though it's generally more expensive there).
I've never used Thrush Buster, but I have used Kopertox with good results.
The most important thing you'll want to remember, though? Wear rubber gloves. All that stuff stinks and it's almost impossible to wash off.
