UGH!!! Sick and tired of thrush! I'm sick of my hands smelling disgusting from treating his feet (the smell seeps through gloves!), I'm tired of my back aching from treating his feet (I have an SI joint issue and he is a leaner). I'm so ready for it to just be all better.
When we got Jack 3 weeks ago he had thrush so bad/deep that he was lame and when I cleaned his hooves they bled.
And it's going to be a super long process, because I'm going to continue to treat until the deep, deep cracks in his central sulcus are grown out to the ideal divit. My farrier suggested switching up what treatment I use every 2 weeks, just to make sure we don't hit a plateau with the healing. I'm currently using ToDAY and will be switching to "Ramey's Goo" in a couple of days. Haven't decided yet what will be next. I'm also flushing his feet between cleaning and medicating with a disinfectant my farrier gave me. I think she said it's called triseptic (or something, flushing isn't as good as soaking, but soaking all four feet would be... pretty much impossible. He's stubborn as heck as it is.
I think I just wanted to vent. Maybe get some advice/support. Hear from people who have been there to tell me that it won't be long!
