#Is this ok for thrush?#

Ok, my horse is barefoot, has great hooves, ridden hard daily, and on a good hoof/joint/coat supplement. He is in a small, somewhat muddy pasture, as it has been raining like crazy. This has led to a few mild cases of thrush over the summer, no serious damage. When he gets it, I treat it with doctor naylor blu kote. My vet and my farrier both said that this was fine, but I thought I would ask you guys. I also use hooflex liquid conditioner on the hoof wall.

I use apple cider vinegar. It kills harmful bacteria without killing the good bacteria unlike bleach. It's also natural, so you're not putting a bunch of chemicals on your horse's feet.

There's Durasole, Thrushbuster, Today/Tomorrow, and others, all pretty much work if you're diligent about cleaning out and applying it every day.

Is the blu kote safe? And I'm going to try the apple cider vinegar!

I scrub with dawn dish soapy water in a spray bottle a few times a week. Done and done.

I used Thrushbuster. I tried other things, including vinegar but my horse's thrush was pretty awful.

Haven't tried the dawn soap.. sounds interesting!
