Question
hi ma'am. is Clorox bleach the best remedy for getting rid of Thrush in horses? how many times a day to apply on the hooves?

Answer
Hi Roberts.
  The "best" remedy for thrush is meticulous hoof care and stall maintenance! What should be used and how often depends on the severity of the thrush. I'd suggest consulting your farrier and/or your vet, since I don't know what products are available in your area.
Best of luck.
