Yes, I use Hoof Heal. It works great! It works best to prevent against thrush, paint it on the outside and on the sole/frog. To treat thrush, I use Thrush Stop or Save a Hoof Spray. Sore No More's "The Sauce" works really well too.

Great, thank you! How often do you put Hoof Heal on your horses? On the bottle it says three times a week, but does it work just as good if you do it one or two times a week after you use it for a while regularly?

I rescued a saddlebred several years ago who was standing in about 3 ft of crap. She had thrush so bad she was lame with it. We tried all the stuff at the farm store, but the only thing that worked was the tried and true iodine. We live in a rather soggy area and we just spray a little on about once a week as a preventative problems with thrush anymore.

I only use it "as needed". I don't use it much during wet/muddy conditions. Then I use the Save a Hoof Spray. When things start drying out, I use it anywhere from 1 to 3 times a week, depending on ground conditions.

Does anyone ever use Kopertox? I remember using that on a couple horses at my grandma's stable that came in with thrush. I remember it being a vile green liquid.

I use the bleach solution myself- along with a good trimming, and daily cleaning. We had a rescue horse come in that had such horrible thrush that we soaked disposable baby diapers in the bleach water and strapped them on his feet for a couple hours at a time. He wouldn't stand in the buckets long enough to really treat them good. It helped a lot, every time he stepped down it would squish that diaper and make the water flow up.

Yeah, Iv used Kopertox. Works well too, guess it just depends on the horse, as to what works best. Differant horses will have differant results, so its just a matter of trying a few. And bactira can build up a resistance too. So swaping now and then when you find a remady isnt working as well as it should, might do the trick.

That diaper thing is a really good idea! Also switching around things to kill the bacteria is a great idea. Thanks!
