As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Thrushbuster® forms a cleaner barrier and deters dirt and manure penetration into the healthy frog. Unique color tells you where it’s doing the job, with a fresh coat needed only where the color has faded.

Thrushbuster® is more effective than commercial preparations, yet milder to sensitive tissue than bleaches, copper sulfate, or turpentine. Thrushbuster® can also be used before applying sole pads and silicon to toughen thin-soled feet.

Made in the USA

Due to federal regulations, we are unable to offer expedited shipping, or ship to Alaska and Hawaii for this product. Please note this item may ship separately from your order. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

Favorite Features
  • Unique color for more accurate application
  • More effective than commercial preparation
  • More Mild than bleach, copper sulfate, and turpentine

Sizing

Handy 2 oz. bottle ensures easy application.

    Thrush Buster is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 218.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Living in a damp environment, this product is always the one we turn to to protect and cure our horses feet from thrush. Our Farrier highly recommends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works! This little bottle lasts a very long time and it really works!!
    Date published: 2017-06-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy application Due to an unfortunate shoeing incident, my horse ended up needing these crazy glue on "sneakers". My farrier noted that because of the lack of airflow with these shoes, we needed to do a thrush treatment twice a week as a preventative measure. Thrush Buster is iodine based (which I am allergic to) but the applicator bottle is so easy to use that I've never gotten anything on me! It goes right where it needs to go (I just squirt some down into the back of the shoe). It doesn't have the horrid smell that I associate with thrush remedies either. The only thing to note is that it does stain (concrete included) so use with care!
    Date published: 2017-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old School Works! We have been using TB for over 3 years! It does an amazing job on stubborn thrush or nips it in the bud. We use it daily or every other day to seal cracks and protect the hoof from bacteria (it is a barrier ) Our horse had WLD. I know this is an old school product and the small bottle goes a long way. Wear gloves! Rememeber Thrush is a fungus and baterial ...this product covers both. Off brands are no the same formula and have been using it long enough to know this
    Date published: 2017-05-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great My farrier recommended this for my rescue donkey who has some feet issues and works great. Easy to squirt in her feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy uses This stuff works!!! The color makes it easy for my teen to see where she put it . Works well the first time.
    Date published: 2017-04-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and True I've ventured into other thrush remedies and nothing seems to work better than thrush buster. Maybe it's just placebo because it turns the hoof (and everything else) purple, but no matter what other treatments I try, I end up back at a bottle of the purple stuff.
    Date published: 2017-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick healing Selected this for thrush in the frog section of the hoof. Easy to use & effective. Does stain anything it touches.
    Date published: 2017-04-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job in one dose! I only had to apply once to kill the bacteria. I can also use proactively once a week while my horse is on stall rest.
    Date published: 2017-03-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Thrush Buster is the best for wet weather to keep your horses feet dry.
    Date published: 2017-02-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps thrush at bay I use Thrush Buster daily on any of my horses that need it. My farrier recommends it, and it seems to do the trick for small thrush infections. A more serious infection may require additional treatment.
    Date published: 2017-02-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little bottle with Big results! Awesome product! I've used Thrush-x or coppertox, those bottles were terrible to use, spilt all over and the odor was overpowering. This bottle's design makes it much easier to apply and doesn't smell half as bad. Definitely a must have in your tack box!
    Date published: 2017-02-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always works A tried and true classic that will get rid of thrush quickly. The bright purple helps you see where you've put it but be warned it will stain anything it touches...especially clothes! But it works! Seems pricey but a little goes a long way. I had my last bottle over 2 years.
    Date published: 2017-01-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bottle Easy to apply not messy and much less smell then other products
    Date published: 2017-01-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This will kill thrush within a couple uses, which is awesome! The bottle is really easy to use to apply. The only issue I have with this product, is it stains. Its a little difficult to judge your horse's thrush when their frog is dark purple, but that's not a huge deal. It will also stain your concrete a lovely purple! The last thrush product I used (which was purple too) worked as effectively, but didn't stained. I'll be switching back to the old one next time.
    Date published: 2017-01-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works well! I bought this as a recommendation from my farrier. I have been very happy with the results. I used thrush buster 4 times and it really seemed to get rid of the thrush and smell that was coming from my horses hoof!
    Date published: 2017-01-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Works well for thrush, I think it may be on the burny side as far as horses' reaction to aplication went. Would be great if they could formulate something that was less uncomfortable and still works as well. A bit expensive for some purple iodine though...
    Date published: 2016-12-22
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Love thrush buster. Works well when applied on a rountine basis.
    Date published: 2016-09-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for every tack box I always keep it on hand. Only bad thing is how small it is. In wet Florida it is a must - also good to rotate with other products (Koppertox and Keratex).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works every time! I am continually trying different and new products to combat my horse's thrush. Each time I end up going back to Thrush Buster. It works great and quickly. It's the only product that has provided consistent control of thrush.
    Date published: 2016-04-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Quickly After a few uses his thrush cleared up. It was only mild thrush but either way this product got rid of it!
    Date published: 2016-04-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrush Buster is the leader! I can always depend on this product to work and work quickly. It is in a small, easy to use bottle. It gets down into deep cracks and gets to work immediately. The design of the bottle allows precise application, and with practice you can even get away without a few purple spots on your fingers. I've tried others and have always come back to Thrush Buster.
    Date published: 2016-04-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Works with one application! Farrier said ok to use weekly during muddy times to prevent Thrush.
    Date published: 2016-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Doesn't take much. Easy to tell when to reapply. Convenient hand sized bottle so you don't have to out it down to handle and clean hoof. No spills.
