Just because you can’t smell it, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Heel cracks are the secret enemy, they are unhealed remains of the ravages of thrush. They hold the bacteria deep inside causing other issues, and starting the thrush cycle all over again. The heels should be smooth and firm with a dimple not squishy with a crack. See the image to the right to compare your horses hooves.
Heel Cracks can be fixed. Luckily for us there is a wide variety of treatments and products we can purchase for our four-legged friends.
No Thrush is the first dry thrush treatment available. No more staining clothes or stinky fluids to mess with. Here is a video on why and how to apply the No Thrush dry powder to your horse.
No Thrush ® attacks the bacteria that cause thrush and related fungal infections with a combination of naturally occurring mineral salts that do not burn or harm the tender areas of the hoof.
