    This is an excellent topic. I did this topic on another forum I was on several months ago because I was putting together a human/equine one for my barn. I had the basis but I wanted others opinions & input! Thankfully I haven't had to use it yet, but I am a step ahead *for once in my life* (ha ha) and have most of these products.

    I see a lot of people against peroxide. I don't use it either but mainly b/c I don't like it & think that there are far better products out there.

    **Ryle** thanks for those websites. I printed them out & saved the site to my favorite to read at my leisure. You were always a big help on the other forum. Great to see you putting your 2 cents on this one too!

    I'm a big towel fan ~ I use towels often for various aspects of my equine life! Then all you have to do is take them home & wash them. Less waste too!

    Swat is a great ointment used to keep flies off of wounds. It doesnt sting and it stays in place. It works very well. I use it over my wound treatments.

    Great thread. I would also like to add bleach. It will instantly kill thrush. It isn't as hard on the hooves as you would think. Just keep it on the sole. Father was a certified farrier.

    Many of you say no Hydrogen Peroxide etc. I was just wondering what you suggest to use instead. Thanks.
