Stomp Out THRUSH

This hoof ailment stinks, but prevention and quick treatment pay off.

Everyone’s heard of thrush in a hoof, but not everyone has seen it. More likely, they would smell it first.

The unpleasant smell of a thrush-infected hoof can send you reeling in the middle of a grooming session. Opening an infected horse’s stall door is an instant reminder that his hooves need treatment.

Farriers sometimes leave warnings on invoices: “Needs thrush treatment,” or “Thrush is getting worse.” Some farriers even sell thrush preparations to their clients, or charge extra for foot disinfection. Treating thrush is not something you want to put off. The next note from your farrier may be “Call the vet—serious thrush!” and you may even find your horse showing signs of lameness. Here is a refresher course on what thrush is and how simple it is for you to do something about it.
