Scratches or Foot Fungus

My horse has scratches. The foot fungus that is on his heel. It is only on the back and the heel is white. Does that have anythig to do with it? Also what can I do to get rid of it?

If by heel you mean the part of the leg with hair? Use Iodine shampoo or any medicated shampoo for scratches (I use Microtek shampoo) and keep it dry.

Your welcome. My mare gets it even when its dry out. I think the Microtek works better than iodine. Oh and it says to dilute it with water but I just put the shampoo on a rubber scrubby thingy and apply directly to her legs, works pretty fast that way.

I mix a bucket of water with 2tblspoons betadine scrub. Scrub it with a sponge nice and clean, dry with a towel (important) and put diaper rash cream on it.

Truly helped get rid of them on my horse :)
