First, make sure the hoof is clean and dry, then apply Banixx. Treat twice daily.
Banixx needs to make contact with the infection to be effective. We recommend the use of a medicine boot for severe thrush, both to keep Banixx in contact with the infection and to keep the hoof in a sanitary environment. If you don't have a boot, consider wrapping the foot to keep it sanitary. Results are visible in two to three days.
A deep, chronic thrush infection had penetrated deep into the sensitive Plantar cushion, and this horse was lame.
The hole caused by the thrush infection, seen in the picture at left, was 1/2" deep before treatment. After 3 days of Banixx™ application with a medicine boot, there was a huge reduction in both the size and depth of the horse's thrush infection (see photo above, at right).
The medication boot was important for maintaining the foot in the Banixx™ solution and keeping the foot in a clean environment. Learn more about the reason for using a medicine boot.
Banixx is documented to produce "fast results even with painful severe thrush, with pain markedly decreased within one to two days" (Horse Journal, Dec 2009).
