Many types of bacteria can cause thrush, although "Fusobacterium necrophorum" is often the host. This bacteria is anaerobic, which means that it survives without oxygen. This anaerobic organism penetrates the soft tissue of the frog and can eat all the way to the sensitive tissue and into the digital plantar cushion and eventually into the navicular and coffin bones. Generally mild thrush is an infection that is easy to treat, however, if the factors that cause it (infected stalls, poor hoof keeping, etc) are not corrected, the infection will likely return. Once the black necrotic (dead) tissue has been removed and the frog, cleft and sulcus of the hoof have been cleaned you can apply "Thrush Off". Brush the product deep into the frog and affected areas with a toothbrush. Unlike other products, "Thrush Off" does not burn sensitive or live tissue such as the coronet band or an open wound. Unlike other products "Thrush Off" heals open wound tissue and kills on contact. It is natural and non-toxic.
