My horse has soft, thin soles so, once shod, we wedged cotton up under the shoe and soaked it with betadine. (My farrier wanted me to get 7% iodine, but not even my vet had that! But it's more potent and would be more effective. You do have to get it from a vet, though.)
The cotton thing and I weren't getting along, though, so I just got a spray bottle head and cleaned/sprayed the bottom of his hoof every day or every other day. He's finally showing signs of good, hard, and solid sole!
