Why does my horse keep getting thrush?
Preventing and treating thrush is important for every horse. First, make sure to provide your horse with regular exercise to maintain a healthy frog. The movement of the hoof through walking or exercise is a benefit because this increases blood flow and circulation to the frog. Second, hoof care is important along with regular farrier visits to maintain a healthy hoof. Third, maintain a clean and dry footing for the horse, also regular cleaning of the stall and turning over of the soil is a benefit.
If you do all these things and your horse gets thrush, your horse may be especially sensitive to thrush and you will need to use Outlaw Thrush Stuff daily until symptoms subside.
