Here we have cut/pasted just a few of the wonderful No Thrush reviews at www.ValleyVet.com.
As promised, here is KOA’s before/during/after compilation.
Important things to Know:
* The daily application process takes no more than 1 minute per day. Besides a brief dabbing away of bedding and drainage in the early stages, DUST ON use requires no washing, no pulling scabs, and no wrapping in most cases. With a barn full of over 50 horses, we can honestly guarantee that you have never used a product that takes less work on your part, and produces the least amount of stress on your horse.
* DUST ON is all natural. No chemicals.
* DUST ON! allows the body to heal naturally, meaning that it allows proper amounts of granulation tissue to cover the entire wound, then creating a healthy and BREATHABLE scab.
NOTE: A few weeks into use on a wound like KOA’S the scab will become big and chunky. This is what we want! You will be tempted to mess with it. Please don’t. For DUST ON to work as designed, the scab must stay in place. Don’t fret, you are not drying out the wound. The healing happens underneath the scab. In fact, removing the scab means that you now must start all over again, extending healing time, adding to your horse’s discomfort, and making scarring more likely.
* DUST ON! controls bacteria without being caustic, (This means that it does not damage live tissue, which also means scarring is far less likely.)
* DUST ON works extremely well on proud flesh. In fact, stay tuned on this FB page. Our next videologue series will be on proud flesh. We are currently documenting a significant case right now. It has been amazing to see the difference DUST ON has made in just 3 days.
LAST NOTE: I must reemphasize one point above.
Take a look on this FB page and watch the KOA DAY 1,2, and 3 Videos. (1 minute each). It is important that when using DUST ON that you follow the usage demonstrated in those videos. Why, you ask? Well, many of DUST ON’s biggest fans and even some of our best friends decide that they should tinker. (They feel a little guilty that they’ve only spent 1 minute a day on that wound)
Here are a few things we’d ask them NOT to do…… Perhaps they decide that the scab should be softened so they add creams and ointments. Maybe they decide that the scab should be removed altogether so they wash and soak and pick and pluck; or they decide they should wrap day after day after day. All of this tinkering will significantly slow the process, or much worse. (For example: proud flesh, infection, scarring, etc) The product slogan should be “Just Dust On – and Keep It Simple!”
Just trust the powder. Or as author, Craig Alanson, likes to say,
“Trust the Awesomeness.”
The powder will do its job.
Equine healing has evolved over millions of years. In the wild; an open wound drains, granulation tissue grows over the wound, the wound scabs over, and the wound heals by stitching itself together from the edges inward. No creams, sprays, or ointments are needed for this healing. DUST ON re-enforces and speeds up this natural process, it does not try to reimagine natures design.

How to “Wrap a hoof” instead of buying expensive RX hoof boots.
Scroll for photo slideshow.
Often your vet or farrier will ask you to “wrap” a hoof” or buy and utilize hoof boots. There are many reasons they might request this, but it is typically due to tender or infected frogs, whiteline disease, and/or soft, bruised, or damaged soles. If the treatment is expected to be long term, it may be best to break down and purchase the boots. However if you are expecting just a few weeks of treatment, there is an easy (and cost effective) alternative.
NOTE: Boots and wrapping (even hoof packing) remove oxygen and create a warm, moist environment which is where thrush and bacteria thrive.
So… here is what to do…
*NO THRUSH powder, (Buy at any Farm and Tack store)
TIME NEEDED: 3-5 minutes
Step 1: Clean and brush the hoof, removing debris. (If you are in rainy or snowy conditions, use a rag to wipe up any excessive moisture. (It doesn’t have to be perfect, just wipe away the worst of it, HOWEVER the outside hoof wall must be completely dry so the tape will stick
Step 2: Liberally dust the hoof (and all crevices) with NO THRUSH Powder. Brush it in with your hoof brush and then add a little more on top.
Step 3: Tear a piece of gauze and place it over the NO THRUSH so it covers the entire frog and sole.
Step 4. Grab strips of Dust tape (preparing these in advance will make your life MUCH easier). Attach the tape in an overlapping row. Be sure you let the edges overlap 2 inches on each side. Then add some additional crisscrossed strips using the same method. With your hand, firmly affix the tape. Be sure to use enough strips that you can no longer see any gauze. In damp weather, a few additional strips may be helpful to keep out the elements.
Step 5: Grab the roll of tape and run 2-4 complete circles around the hoof wall, sealing down the edges of the crosscross strips. Run your hand over the tape to give it a final seal.
That’s it. Your No Thrush /gauze / Duct Tape creation will typically last a 2-3 days, and often longer depending on how much activity the horse is getting. To read more about thrush, go to this video:https://fouroaksproducts.com/thrush-education
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.”
