You just mix equal parts TAO and anti-fungal. I bought Walmart generic, it cost me less than $10.

I found it easier to mix it up in a giant syringe and then use that syringe to get it in the curved tip one. It isn't exactly easy to suck the mixture up the curved syringe, lol.

I also have added generic monistat (yes, the ladies yeast infection cream) and it helps to make the mixture more liquidy ad makes it easier to apply. I have also added tea tree oil and desitin also. I have found that most dollar stores (like everything is 1 type places) have most of this stuff for a buck. Cheapest way.

Will it work even though I don't think it's actual thrush anymore? There's no stench or smell. Just a big hole that's sore lol

Its like an open wound right now. What are the basic rules of wound care? Keep infection at bay (so keep treating like it is infected) keep it clean and allow it to heal/give it time. Don't stop treating it or it will just come back. The good product is a multi facet approach treating thrush and yet also encouraging healing. I find if I tweek the mixture a bit, some mixes work better on some horses than others.

Yep this. Love Pete's goo. My horse has been standing in deep mud for the last month, and the goo has kept the thrush away.
