May I ask what you are doing for the thrush?
My recent experience with it has me wanting to share this bit of information in hopes it may help someone else.
Pick out hooves.
Scrub clean with a good stiff brush (I use an old dandy brush) using water and dish detergent (I used Dawn)
Rinse with clean water
Next for four days, I inserted an antibiotic that is used to treat cows for mastitis into every crack and cranny in the frogs.
Now that I am through with the antibiotics, I spray the frogs with a mixture of teatree oil and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar. This is after the scrubbing and rinsing.
I am seeing results that make me very happy. Hope it is something that will help you.
Also might add that I feed soaked plain (no molasses) beet pulp plus black oiled sunflower seeds and ground flax and hay.
Best wishes to you and your boy!
