Canker help!!

My horse has recently been diagnosed with canker in one of her front hoofs and one of the back. She was taken into the vets to get it cut out, they cut the canker present away and also cut her feet right back til they bleed alot.
Her after care is that she has to have her feet soaked in bleech everyday and I have to crush anti biotics into a powder then put it directly on her frog area.
Only after four days has the canker in her feet grown back..
Im very worried about my horse and I pick up that my vet has never dealt with this before.
Im just wondering if anyone out there has ever experienced canker with there horse before and have any tips or any comments to help please.

Dr. O'Grady, Northern Virginia Equine, writes about this topic. You can read that article here:

Equine Podiatry | Dr. Stephen O'Grady, veterinarians, farriers, books, articles

You can speak with Dr. O'Grady personally at 1-540-364-4450.

You can also engage the AAPF and their member veterinarians/farriers via this link:

Horse Owners - American Association of Professional Farriers

Scroll to the bottom of the page to submit specific inquiries.

Canker is a serious pathology and will require a team effort between the attending veterinarian, the farrier and the owner.
