Thrush is a much bigger deal than most people think. If your horse is getting visible thrush 3-4 times a year, your horse has a heel crack. It’s warm and moist in there and thrush bacteria will seek it out. EVEN IN SUMMER. The bacteria will always go there, and then all it takes is a little moisture to activate it. And remember – Thrush is an “infection.”
Here is a (non-salesy) video to learn everything you need to know about thrush.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxFRqFwF9ew&t
Now for the brief sale pitch…. Try non-caustic No Thrush, the First Ever Dry powder to get you out of the thrush-cycle for good.
From HK at No Thrush:
No Thrush has been independently studied and reviewed by authors of The Healthy Frog article in THE HORSE’S HOOF magazine. Below is the photo-documentation, and below that is a segment of the article. Thanks to the HORSE’S HOOF, Heike Bean, and Josephine Trott, PhD U.C. Davis
Josephine Trott, PhD, Assistant Project Scientist, Department of Animal Science at the University of California, Davis, has been experimenting with and documenting her treatment procedure which included several different agents, amongst others, No Thrush and Oxine AH.
After a frustrating, expensive and time consuming battle using nearly every product imaginable, she tried No Thrush. “I started an experiment on eight hooves, comparing daily dusting with No Thrush to daily soaking in Oxine AH or a combination of the two. Three weeks later, the No Thrush treated frogs were not sensitive anymore, the heel bulbs were much firmer, the depth of the central sulcus was 50% shallower and the frog tissue was overall much firmer with no significant areas of surface thrush/cheesy frog. By comparison, the two Oxine AH soaked frogs were still sensitive to pressure, still had deep central sulci and significant surface thrush.”
