My boy’s got it bad. For those of you that haven’t had the joy of dealing with this stinky infection all I have to say is you’re so lucky. Although I suspect that not many of us can say we’ve never seen it. It’s my understanding that it’s fairly common.
Thrush is a bacterial or fungal infection in the hoof. The offending organisms occur naturally in the environment. Those little nasty’s love wet, muddy conditions.
Like right now. All this wet fall weather we’ve been having. Perfect for the thrush to jump into Tucker’s toes and squish around and make things gross.
So I’ve been treating all his feet for almost a week now. I thought we were getting it under control. Then last night while I was treating his feet I picked up the last foot (FR) and bam. The little bit that was there had turned into quite a bit more. Not nearly as bad as the BL but a noticeably deeper hole.
Have you dealt with thrush before? What treatment did you use? Have you tried any home remedies that you’ve found worked?
