Dust On Powder kills Skunk smell!

Duomo got skunked again! Grrrr.
This is the 4th time we have used Dust On Powder for skunk smell elimination. We can say that it has been properly tested. After a little learning curve, here is what we learned…..
#1. Do NOT wash yet! Skunk oil does not mix well with water.
#2 Puff the Dust On powder everywhere the pet has been hit. Use a bunch.
#3 Grab some gloves and rub the powder into the coat so all areas have been fully coated. (See photo). The powder draws and absorbs the oil out of the coat
#4 Keep the pet outside and let this sit for 10 minutes.
Optional – Spray lemon juice over the skunked area. This is not mandatory, at all, but it will give you that lemony fresh scent.
#5 Grab a hose and do a good wash down with shampoo.
#6 Dry him. You are done. The entire process will take about 20 minutes in total. When you are done, the pet can go back to his spot beside your bed and you won’t even know that the drama occurred. No smell at all.

Oh, and Rock got hit twice, too. Here is his mugshot.

NO THRUSH Pro Tip – “Shedding Frog”

NO THRUSH Pro Tip – “Shedding Frog”

No Thrush – PRO TIP – July 2015… “**Shedding Frog**” We received a private message from a woman whose horse was shedding its frog. The answer is valuable, so we thought we’d share to all….

While frog shedding is normal, if you have never experienced it, it can look scary. In fact, sometimes the entire V of the frog will shed at once, which really looks daunting.

Usually thrush is the procuring cause of the shedding.

Here is why: Thrush wants to invade and live deep inside the heel tissue, and of course you can’t see it or smell it because it is so deep. [This is why we preach so hard about eliminating the heel cracks and deep collateral grooves. These are bacteria access points.]  — Anyway, when the thrush has run it course deep inside, this action can undermine the frog.

However, when active thrush is present, the frog tissue will literally hang on for dear-life. The body does not want to allow it to shed because it is the only protection for the soft, tender, and vulnerable tissue underneath. ….

So here is the No Thrush “tip.” —- If you see the frog begin to shed [ perhaps an edge, or even a big section looks to be dislodging and “flappy” under your hoof pick] get aggressive with your No Thrush dustings. Once per day is best. The powder will draw out the deep bacteria and breeding ground and take care of the “thrush” problem. If the thrush was severe, and the frog has been undermined, the rest of the frog may fully shed away. This is a good sign. This is the body’s way of breathing a sigh of relief. It no longer needs to fight the thrush, so the body allows the necrotic/dead tissue to fall away.

But you are not quite done…. Keep using your NT every few days. This will help firm up that new tender tissue and allow it to regrow properly. No Thrush is not caustic, so it will not inhibit natural grow…. As the new frog continues to grow you can slowly back off. The A-to-Z timing will be based on the speed of your horse’s natural growth rate. [usually 20-50 days]  No Thrush is not “making” the tissue grow, it is “allowing” it to grow. Meanwhile the powder is protecting the new/tender tissue from being invaded by a whole new round of thrush.
