^^^Yes. Once the ToMorrow starts over flowing, have your 50-50 mix of diaper rash cream and antibiotic ointment ready to "seal" the ToMorrow in.
Diaper rash cream (especially WalMart's brand) stays on the skin really well, in spite of moisture. That's the main purpose for using it; an added benefit is that it is 40% zinc oxide,another healing property.
You have to soak the hooves first, in tepid water and either betadyne or hibiclens. 10 12 minutes should be good. Pat dry with paper towels.
If you can do the zip lock bag and all the hooves at once, it will save you a big bunch of time.
I went back and looked at the pic of the duct-taped zip lock bag. The lady only duct taped the three sides, making sure the bottom had enough tape to where the horse's hoof wouldn't puncture thru it.
If your horse isn't home, or you work/school long hours, you can get by with treating once a day. Twice daily is a lot better for something this serious but, at the very least, don't let treatments go more than 24 hours:)
For folks that don't know about ToMorrow, here's a link but the description is only for its intended purpose of treating cow mastitis. I have no idea why it works so well on deep sulci thrush but it's almost too good to be true. http://www.probioticsmart.com/farm/t...-12ct-box.html
