... Adding... This is a vicious circle, because it puts stress on the 'navicular region' so in turn makes heels more sensitive. While he needs to be able to start using his heels properly, to trim them down & try to force them into more active role now will likely put him further on his toes because they hurt too much. So I'd be conservative about trimming heels for now, keep treating thrush, but with something that doesn't further damage the weak tissue, and I'd pad his frogs *not under heels* in order to allow them comfortable & protected stimulation, until they're strong enough to do without it.
