Frustrated by thrush? No Thrush is the first “dry” approach to thrush treatment. The safe, natural formula is “dusted on” with a thin-tipped squeeze bottle, which provides excellent coverage of the infected area. The combination of healing, refined ingredients, including oregano powder and diatomaceous earth, soothe the inner hoof and promote healthy hoof regeneration. See the ad on page 37.
