I look at deep slcus thrush like a real wound anywhere else on the body. It needs to be keps very clean. If its too wet, dry it out, if its too dry, dampen it. Alternating treatments is the most effective typically. TB and No thrsh as well as dawn dish soap and water work awesome.

as far as feed and supplements, I believe I have always been ok with that.... unfortunately the source of the problem was my own ignorance, so PROBLEM SOLVED! now on to the healing process......
