Question Tomorrow Dry Cow - thrush

I read about this in a couple of threads and I'd like to know what treatment regiment you use? How often and for how long?

On the recommendation of my farrier I have used another thrush treatment in a couple of areas along the hoof wall where I'm working on a little bit of wall separation but one of my horses may be developing some issues on he frogs on both right legs. I want to knock it out before the stuff gets to be a problem. I try to clean their hooves daily and do their routine trimming, hoof care is very routine.

Dry Cow sounds like another good tool in the treatment tool box but since it's a off label use I'm curious how everyone uses it?

I used it with great success for deep sulcus thrush. My horse's frog was so badly infected, I could fit the entire pick of the hoof pick into the heel bulb. Used it every other day for about a month until the hole filled in from inside out. I don't know how effective dry cow would be as a topical treatment. It's not at all gooey, so I would think it would wear off easily.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Tomorrow is an amazing thrush remedy. I squirted it in the crevices, packed some gauze/cotton in there to hold it, and turned him loose. I did this every other day for a week then once a week for 3 weeks.....I think. I have it written down somewhere :)

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

I wanted to add that in the past, when I've had ANY foot healing problem, I have covered the hoof with a disposable diaper and secured it to the hoof with duct tape, and changed it daily. It keeps all foreign debris from sticking to any meds and it keeps ALL moisture away from the healing tissue.
