Can I treat thrush in my horse’s hoof by just spraying Banixx onto my horse’s feet?
Not for best results. Thrush resides in the dark, warm, moist crevices and cracks that are deep in the horse’s frog. Spraying Banixx onto the hoof frog surface just doesn’t reach those deep crevices, since the Banixx solution will likely roll right over these hidden places and never get the chance to penetrate. The hoof tissue needs to be awash in Banixx, making good contact with the thrush infection to do its job. This is one reason why we recommend using a medicine boot or similar to treat thrush in horses. Another reason is to isolate the hoof from the murky environment in which the horse hoof lives so that Banixx can go to work.
