No Thrush tip for Spring

Quick No Thrush tip: If you bring a horse out of pasture and find he has a thrush-rotted frog, you can clean the foot with pick and brush, dust well with NT, then place a gauze pad over the frog and use duct tape to keep in place. Change every day or two. This will transform a soft, rotted frog into firm tissue (which will support the sole, which is often infected as well – and this will help support the coffin bone). The old frog may slough away and the new tissue will begin to re-grow. After a week or 10 days, you can just do daily dusting and forgo the duct-tape routine. Now the frog will grow out normally. (Be sure to dust “inside” all heel cracks, and use your pick-brush to distribute NO Thrush Dry powder over the heel, frog, and sole each day.) (Note: This duct tape routine is not needed for typical thrush, it is just an option to help remove the elements from the rotted frog/thrush equation.)  Hoping the sun and Spring warmth reaches all of you soon!
