Hey Beau, don't put bleach on the hooves. That's all I can tell you right now. Let me ask my man. He's a farrier. So just hang on till I get a answer but I'm sure he's said before not to use bleach. Posted via Mobile Device
He told me you can use bleach to kill the bacteria but only one use and then go to something milder as the bleach will dry the hooves out. Masticlear works great. If you can find it. Try a dairy supplier. Posted via Mobile Device
Mbender, maybe your BF can help me?!?! I've been battling thrush since November. Haven't been able to get to it with any off the shelf products. Zee just had his feet done and my farrier is now recommending Keratex all over the frog every two days to attempt to dry it out. Will this help? I understand the idea of creating a barrier, but won't it block the oxygen from getting to it too? I put keratex on last night, but I also picked up a bottle of peroxide to try tonight, between keratex treatments. Good idea or bad idea???
Thank you!!!!! I also just came across this website... Prevention and Relief of Navicul and this page, New Page 15 Looks like he's using one tube of athlete's foot cream with one tube of neosporin mixed together. I'm thinking this might be a better option over the peroxide. Squirt the paste in, then cover with keratex??? I've totally given up on any store bought thrush remedies. THRUSH IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!
