Thrush Buster, do you do the frog?

My daughter and I went out to see her horse on Saturday and decided to
Do a thrush buster treatment. Lots of rainy muddy weather lately and wanted to try to avoid getting thrush. "Ounce of prevention"
She cleaned his feet real well, used a hoof pick, scrub brush and water.
We let them dry then she used a tooth brush to apply the tb. She applied it from the edge of the frog outward to the hoof edge. My question, should we have also treated the frog?

The entire frog and down in the openings on either side of the frog (collateral grooves) are what should have painted.

I would not use Thrush Buster as a maintenance preventative, were it my horse. If the horse already has thrush that's another matter.

I use Absorbine Hooflex "Thrush Remedy" as a preventative. It has an oil base so it won't dry the hoof out and is very non-invasive to healthy tissue.

Hooflex® Thrush Remedy – Hoof Care – Products – Absorbine

Once or twice a week if sufficient if the horse is in constant wet but the frogs are healthy
