I haven't been able to find a website for it either, although I had found it in my local ShurGain. I'll check the bottle next time I'm down though to see if I can find a manufacturer. I was hesitant about using it after reading posts on this forum but it's worked pretty well and I haven't noticed any issues with healthy tissue growing back as there has been such a big improvement.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

Another question- what should I do about flaps/ragged bits that develop on the frog between farrier visits?

I got a hook knife a short while ago intending to at least cut off the big flaps, but it was so dull I ended up returning it. I'm not sure where to get a good hoof knife locally, but I'm going to be ordering my fall dewormer from ValleyVet soon and noticed they had several listed online.

Is a hoof knife the best tool for cleaning up the flaps, or would I be better served with a pair of small, sharp scissors or something else entirely? Or should I just leave it up to my farrier entirely and not take anything off the frog between visits?

i've found the no thrush to work quite quickly so that's a bummer that you're not getting the same/similar results. :(

with regards to the frog flaps - at least your farrier trims them up! the guy that i finally got out to clean up my horse's hooves after he pulled two shoes didn't even bother to do anything with this frogs. suffice to say i'm looking for a different farrier. as to what i do, i pull them off with my hands...

Tomorrow (dry cow mastitis) is great. Purchase a box of pre-loaded syringes at TSC and very easy to use!

My friend uses Tomorrow as well. I don't think a bit of bleach would hurt.
If you want some good quality supplies , I buy mine thru , nice selection and prices, and you get the stuff that the pros use.

Tea tree oil is excellent for thrush :) Also White Lightning (either topical or soaks) I have had a lot of success with.

listerine, lysol, fabuloso, are all just basic disenfectants, You want one strong enough to kill the germs but no so strong it kills the new hoof cells. The last issue I had, I cleaned with a hoof pick, a seal puller, basicaly a sharp hardened steal curved on the tip awl, then I would brush iit out with the lysol and warm water, then use thrush xxx, did it about every other day, but my horse didnt have issues with the frog area, just hoof wall seperation under the shoes when we pulled him, looked bad to me, but he was fine all but one spot in 6 weeks.

I have been using Lysol (1 part Lysol to 5 parts water) in a spray bottle. I pick my horses feet and tip them upwards, so the Lysol solution will pool in the frog. My vet recommended it, and 3 weeks later, the thrush is gone! Just make sure not to pick his/her foot too deep or hard, as this will dig up the new tissue.

White Lightning is actually Oxine. You can get Oxine thru Revival pet, Amazon, some others , the only difference is that a gallon of Oxine is about $30.00! Same exact stuff. And it kills fungus and bacteria.

I think I would also think about disinfecting your tools every day.
