Treatment of thrush with Vetdrop TDA

Chances of Success: using the vetdrop system (based on actual work results) High to Very High.

Thrush can usually be identified by the smell when you clean the horse's hooves. In addition, the horse's hooves are black and the horn crumbles if you scrape it off with hoof pliers. The healthy areas are easy to spot because they are white or gray and do not smell.

Most horses will not get lame, but if left untreated, thrush can penetrate deeper into the hoof and cause lameness. She also bleeds easily. First of all, it attacks the soft parts of the hoof. It usually begins in the mid-frog furrow and can spread to the entire frog and even the balls of the feet. Thrush in horses should be treated as early as possible. This avoids secondary diseases.

Treatment and prevention

The horse's hoof affected by thrush must be cleaned and then washed. Then he should go with Vetdrop TDA treated - here the oxygen is supposed to kill all bacteria and the hoof becomes dry when blown out. Once he is dry he will be given a veterinarian appointment Vetdrop product treated.

The product forms a protective shell over the infected area and allows it to regenerate underneath. This should be repeated every 2-3 days until the thrush is gone.

It is also important that the stables are well cleaned and that the horse does not stand in wet boxes. Cleanliness and hygiene help prevent thrush from recurring.

Thrush isn't a big problem, but it can take up to a year for the frog to fully regrow after a severe infection.

Thrush reacts much like a problem that cows have, namely Mortellaro, and this system with Vetdrop TDA is at Mortellaro extremely effective.

Both mortellaro and thrush are caused by poor hygiene and return when hygiene is not maintained. It is extremely important to avoid wet stalls or boxes.
