Thrush treatment

Jasper(a gelding I have been working with) just got his feet trimmed today. I haven't noticed any signs of thrush, but the farrier said I should be treating him for it.

I don't want to use messy products like thrush buster for various reasons. Has anyone here found other things to be affective? I've heard of using bleach, only problem being that it can dry out the hooves too much.

Thanks

I keep a spray bottle of apple cider vinegar in my grooming kit. Just give them a squirt every time you clean their feet.

Ok, I'm thinking to use white vinegar since I've already got it at the barn(in a spray bottle actually), would ACV be any different?

I've always heard that ACV is more potent than regular white vinegar. I use white vinegar to clean with. Makes a great glass cleaner. I've just always used ACV when used as any topical/medicinal purposes.
I just found this "White vinegar can be used to clean windows, stains, and even to sterilize items as it is used in laboratory settings."

Athlete's foot cream and triple anti-biotic cream. Apply with toothbrush on clean and dry frogs/soles/white line.

Another FYI, I use ACV as a preventative. If thrush gets a toe err hoof hold, you would want to switch to an actual thrush treatment. Those are much harsher. The absolute best preventative is keeping the hoof clean and dry. I know that's not always possible so Vinegar them regularly.

dawn dish soapy water in a spray bottle. Scrub feet a couple times a week. Kinda like washing your hands.
