How do you treat thrush?
We have a rescue horse who came to us yesterday (9/26) and when we had the farrier look at him, he had really poorly maintained feet and deep seated thrush in each hoof.
All the horses we've had have always been in decent health. I personally have never had to deal with a thrush incident. Especially one this bad.
What tools/medications do you suggest to use to treat this?
I seem to remember my mom having to treat a horse of ours with a minor case of thrush years ago. I think she soaked his infected hoof in a bucket of lukewarm to warm water and then put some blue liquid on it. My memory is a little foggy though because I was probably around 7-8 years old.
So what would you do to speed up his recovery?
He's already on a dietary pill, an immune booster, and was given wormer.
I don't know if any treatment options for the thrush would interfere with the other treatments, but I thought I'd tell you anyway.
