    Pick out the hooves.
    Scrub clean getting into every crevice. Use an old dandy brush or scrub brush. Use warm water if possible and add a squirt of anti-biotic dish soap such as Dawn.
    Rinse with clear water and pat dry.
    Spray with a mixture of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar and teatree oil. (Mix up a batch using ten to fifteen drops of TTO to about four cups of ACV).

    Something that is very good is to use the anti-biotic that is used to treat mastitis in cows. One treatment over three or four days using two tubes should make a difference. Sorry, the name eludes me right now....maybe DryCow or something like that.

    Hope this is of some use to you. I had very good results with the scrubbing and spraying daily. At the very least.......be sure to pick out the hooves daily!
    ^^ This, especially the scrubbing/cleaning advice. The cow stuff is called Today or Dry Cow. It's only about $2-3 a tube, so not that costly of a fix. I have used it before, squirting it in to the crevice between the heel bulbs on a mare with contracted heels.

    Another good drug-store remedy is daily topical treatment with a 50-50 mixture of Neosporin Plus Pain (or generic triple antibiotic ointment plus) and human Athletes Foot Cream (1% Clotrimazole). You want to load it in to a syringe without a needle that has a longish tip on it, so you can really get it in to all of the cracks, crevices, and depressions in the bottom of the foot.
