Either that or your padding was too thick or lumpy. Hard to say until you remove the boot and see how he feels. XX it resolves soon.

I removed it earlier, and he's still very lame, but I think I see a hole in his heel, I put some icthomol on it, farrier is coming tomorrow - fingers crossed that it's only an abscess

Well, farrier canceled due to bad weather (snow!!! In Oct. Geez!!) But the good news is, I have found a small hole starting to open on the bulb of his heel. I put some more Icthomol on and wrapped it up (in Whinney the Pooh Diapers-what humiliation for the poor guy) I really believe the sugardine mixture brought it to the surface, I am making some more tonight and I'm going to do another poultice on him (more Pooh diapers I'm afraid) He is starting to put more weight on it, I am soooo hoping the abscess "pops".

I wouldn't recommend sugardine for thrush. Horses that tend to have trouble metabolizing sugar get thrush more often, so I would lean toward thinking that sugar would promote thrush, not cure it. It would work against the idodine. BUt, so far some people say it works on thrush. I just wanted to mention that it's possibly not the best for that purpose.

Now for open abscesses, it works just fine.

what about the black drawing save??? That what we used on our horses when they had an abcess.. they do not sell it in the open but if you go to the pharmcay in a walgreens and ask for the black drawing save that smells exactly like tar...they should have it. It only costs $3.88/tube....this is what we have been successful with...barefoothooves whats your thoughts on this product?

icthammol is what you are talking about tbenitez - we've used it for abcesses for ages, although I don't know how it affects horses with sugar metabolic issues...

Barefoothooves, that is a really interesting fact about sugar and thrush!
