Thrush maintenance? I have never heard of that. If the horse has thrush, you treat it. If you keep them clean and dry, they normally don't get it, so there should be no need to put a chemical on to prevent it.
I meant as treatment at the first sign of thrush. We keep our horses' tootsies as clean as we can but some of them find ways to keep their feet wet and gross all winter long, even indoors lol. Sorry for the confusion
Many thanks for all your comments and advice, I wish I had taken the photo before putting on the thrush buster now as I am curious to how serious he has this condition. The soft gooey stuff does give off a foul smell, I keep him in very dry conditions both in his stall and at play (In Thailand). So a bit bewildered why this has been so hard to budge and how fast his hooves can go all soft again mainly on his frog..... I will be following your helpful advise!
Has anyone experienced their horse getting depressed because of this condition? I imagine it would be like having tooth ache but in his hooves?
FirstLightFarm - You crack me up and you took the words right out of my mouth. We are in Beaufort, and our barn backs up to swamp that backs lets off to the Broad River ;) When you can step out your door and be instantly soaking from humidity keeping things dry is hard and my horses do not stand in mud.
Thrust is an ongoing fight. I prefer coppertox and iodine as well.
