A few weeks ago one of our mares was limping and ended up having an abcess in her hoof. So we had to fill a bag with epson salt & water and put over her foot and leave for about 20 minutes. Every day and finally oneday when we turned her out I put an easy boot on her and the abcess must of finally worked its way out and broke. Boy was that a nasty mess inside the boot.

Anyway I think I'm with Linzi on this one. Betadine will work good but I think some peroxide there a few times a day should work great. As soon as it stops bubbling you want to stop though. A major mis-understand with peroxide is it will actually kill off the new and healthy cells that are trying to grow. Therefore if used on a wound or damaged skin too much, it will cause the process of healing to be longer. So just do it for a few days and let it heal......

Whatever you try you can use the epsom salt in addition (although not at the same time). Epsom salt works wonders. If you don't have a boot, see if your horse will keep it's foot in a small bucket filled with warm water and the recommended amount of Epsom salt. It will draw out infection and speeds healing time.

I woked for a vet for years his solution was to pour bleach from the bottle on it every da for two weeks and it kills the trush but you have to keep the feet clean and as dry as possible. clean out all the mud and **** every day or it will come back and clean out the stall it the horse is stalled, down to the ground, you can pour bleace in there too one cup to a gallon of water will kill the spores in the ground good luck Ramona

Bleach won't hurt the foot. I have heard alot of people doing that too. Bleach is only harmful if ingested.... Actually its probably better to use then peroxide... IMO
