    Well my miniature donkey has thrush. Farrier has been texted and I have been using Mane N Tail Pro-Tect which helps treat thrush. I have been cleaning his hooves 1-2 times a day. He is stalled at night and during bad weather and is outside most of the day.

    Is there a different product you would recommend? I've head to use iodine, ACV, or just purchase thrush buster.

    I have read it is caused by moist environments and unhealthy frogs. Is there anything else I can do to prevent future problems?

    I like Thrush Stop. It's clear and doesn't stain or stink, and dries to make a barrier between the hoof and the ground so, the area stays dry and doesn't promote more trush growth.

    I love white lightning and no thrush powder

    White lightning the gasses do more than liquid so really need very little

    No thrush is a powder you get into the frog and cavities etc - it help dry it out while treating the thrush
