#Is this ok for thrush?#

Ok, my horse is barefoot, has great hooves, ridden hard daily, and on a good hoof/joint/coat supplement. He is in a small, somewhat muddy pasture, as it has been raining like crazy. This has led to a few mild cases of thrush over the summer, no serious damage. When he gets it, I treat it with doctor naylor blu kote. My vet and my farrier both said that this was fine, but I thought I would ask you guys. I also use hooflex liquid conditioner on the hoof wall.

I use apple cider vinegar. It kills harmful bacteria without killing the good bacteria unlike bleach. It's also natural, so you're not putting a bunch of chemicals on your horse's feet.

There's Durasole, Thrushbuster, Today/Tomorrow, and others, all pretty much work if you're diligent about cleaning out and applying it every day.

I scrub with dawn dish soapy water in a spray bottle a few times a week. Done and done.

I used Thrushbuster. I tried other things, including vinegar but my horse's thrush was pretty awful.

Haven't tried the dawn soap.. sounds interesting!
