How do I use Thrush Off to treat white line?
The Hoof wall separates or pulls away from the sole and laminae for various reasons like unbalanced hoof, laminitis, flat pancake feet...etc.
Bacteria take advantage of these flares and invade the space in between because the white line is softer and faster tissue to eat away.
-Clean (detailed) the foot with a brush.
-With a nail, clean the space affected until it is very clean from any debris.
-Apply Thrush-Off and let it soak in.
-Apply a second coat and brush in with the toothbrush (toothbrush included in the bottles for sale) until foams up.
The product has to engage the bacteria in order to kill it. It will kill it on contact.
Sometimes the bacteria is too deep into the white line and a partial resection of the hoofwall must be done to get to the bacteria. This should be done by your farrier or equine professional.
