My boy Riley has been tender on his left front foot, one which he has always had problems off and on (aka "navicular"). I knew he was thrushy the moment he started showing sensitivity in the back of the foot over harder surfaces - so I started doing regular cleanings, and began treatment with Thrush Stop ... then Thrush Buster when I ran out of my previous treatment.
It's still pretty bad. He is still tender, the central culcus on the left front looks pretty icky and he fights me when I try to clean the gunk out so I know it's senstive.
Commercial treatments are just not enough. I read about Oxine Soaks being effective but cannot get the chemicals here (I might be able to get them shipped but it'll cost me ~$100 or more). I will do so if needed, but I would like to try a more affordable option first.
Does anyone have suggestions? I was reading about Pete's Goo a creation by Pete Ramey, a combination of triple antibiotic cream (such as Neosporin) and athletes foot cream which is mixed in a syringe and injected into the sulcus and any cracks of a thrushy frog.
I have also read Zinc Oxide can help protect the frog from thrush after being treated.
I am all ears to suggestions anyone might have - this needs to be treated and rid-of once and for all and what I know isn't quite enough!
