Mastitis treatment for thrush

Well I asked my farrer what he recommended for thrush, since Sonny's thrush wasn't responding to ANY other medicine (I tried 5 other medicines).
He suggested a topical treatment for Mastitis in cows.

So I went out to Tractor Supply and bought it ($14 for 12 things) and thought I'd give it a go...another $14 won't be too bad if it doesn't work.

Well I put it on his hooves on Sunday after thoroughly cleaning them...it comes in surignes just like worming medicine does, but smaller. It's liquid and you just cover the frog in it...one suringe will be able to do all 4 hooves.

Well Tuesday came...couldn't see much rain rot, but a little odor was still there....

Well just checked his feet today and there was no signs of thursh at all....no small, and no thrush looking stuff by his frogs.

I'm totally hooked!! It's a great product!

For those having problems with Thrush I HIGHLY recommend Go-Dry

that's great it worked. I have a tube of similar stuff from the vet for when Fras gets mastitis. I might give it a try next time someone gets thrush.

One of my horses gets mastitis when babies are born and lasts for months :(

What product do you use on your thrush?

Good post Sonny, thanks. I book marked it in my "Horse Health" folder.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
