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.

Favorite Features

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

Sizing It Up

Handy 2 oz. bottle ensures easy application.

    Thrush Buster is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 186.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great applicator, thin stream to target thrush This is by far my favorite thrush treatment (for mild to moderate thrush). I am constantly cleaning out my horse's feet but he LOOVES standing in his own poop. :( Needless to say, we do battle thrush but stay on top of it. I do like to use this every third day to keep thrush away. It does stain, but if you are using it as a preventative to keep major problems away, there is not need to over use. A little bit goes a long way. The other product I use is Coppertox which is TERRIBLY smelly, super sticky and even worse at stains. I'll take this product over coppertox ANY day!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Messy, takes weeks to work I bought this product for Thrush in my mare. Besides staining my hands and her hoofs, it was sticky, difficult to remove from my hands, and NEVER made a dent in her Thrush! Don't waste your money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I bought this to use as a preventative since my horse spends a lot of time in a muddy paddock. It works, and I heard good things about it from other boarders at my horse's barn. I would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always effective This product nearly always clears up mild thrush issues with my horse with just a few applications. Obviously, the color is a pain if you get it on your hands or clothes, so be extra careful. Good, effective product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Thrush Remedy I bought this thrush remedy after my usual treatment with hydrogen peroxide wasn't working. I think it did slow the progression of the thrush I was seeing, but I'm starting to think that maybe I didn't start treatment soon enough. My trainer finally recommended treating with a mixture of nail polish remover and acne medication (10% benzoyl peroxide), wrapping the hoof with vet wrap. It did the trick. However, I plan to keep thrush buster handy in my grooming kit for use when thrush is first spotted. I do wish, too, that there was MORE of the product for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thrush Treatment EVER!! I bought this after I ran out of my other stuff and asked my farrier what he suggested. He suggested thrush buster. I bought it and I wasn't impressed with how small the bottle is compared to the price. But with just one application the thrush was gone!!! A little of it goes a long way and with one or two horses the bottle should last a long time. Be careful of the purple staining on concrete, clothes, or skin!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for treating thrush. I use it at the first sign of thrush and its gone in couple days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thrush Treatment on the Market Not cheap, not a lot of solution, however it is by far the best that I've ever used. Gets rid of most thrush in one treatment, tough stuff in just a few. You don't have to treat multiple times a day like the other product. I would use this over the competitors EVERY SINGLE TIME. There is nothing bad to say about this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally works!! The best product out there. Does the trick and wiped out the thrush in two applications!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just one issue I love this product, I only have 1 issue. It stains. During thrush season I always have a purple finger or two. If this bothers you, wear gloves. Other than that Thrush Buster is one of the best products on the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I have used Thrush Buster for years and I will continue to use this product. I have gotten great results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this producct I have a gelding who is proned to thrush. I would not be caught without this product. I apply once a week when he has thrush and once every two weeks to prevent it when it is not active.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never be without it A staple in my grooming supplies. It does clear thrush in a couple of days. A bit messy to apply and if I am not careful - or my horse is unusually grumpy at having his feet up extensively while I clean, brush and wash - I go quickly through the bottle. But I would not be caught without Thrush Buster!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One application and it's GONE! My OTTB recently got a mild case of thrush and this knocked it out with one application. So now the first sign/smell of thrush I put this on and poof it is GONE! Even though the bottle is small it only takes a few drops and my one bottle has lasted several months and only once did I have to reapply but that is because I've been woking on his hooves for 6+ months to get them in shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Messy but... Messy but... it's working. When Teddy was purchased his frogs had essentially rotted out of his feet after evidently not seeing a farrier for quite some time. I'd been alternating the Absorbine thrush product with a medicated treatment purchased through my vet but felt the Absorbine product stopped working as well as it had been... Not sure if the bacteria becomes resistant after a couple bottles? But I figured I would try switching products next time I ran out and see what happened. While I am now adding to the purple stains in our wash stalls, I feel confident Teddy's feet are continuing to heal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have always had thrush buster in my grooming supplies, this past winter my horse had pretty bad thrush in two hooves. I had run out of this and was treating it to no avail with other products. Once I re-ordered and began applying the Thrush Buster everything started clearing up within the week. Now I know not to bother with anything else. I usually apply daily at first and then ease down to once or twice a week. This has been the only thing that has ever worked for my horse in the years Ive had him.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn´t work at all for my horse even though applied almost every day for more than four weeks.
    Date published: 2012-05-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I like the ease of use and that you only need to apply once or twice a week. It soaks in quickly so it doesn't run out the point of the frog, but it does come out of the bottle quickly and the bottle doesn't need to be squeezed, just tip and "pour". I got a purple hand when the bottle tipped unexpectedly and it poured out and all over me and the bottle. It doesn't take much to do a hoof, so a bottle will last a long time - if you don't spill it. Seems to do the job quickly also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! With so many options out there this is the one that just works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have used Thrush Buster for a number of years and have had good success with it killing thrush. Beware that the purple dye does not come off well when it gets on your hands and is pretty much permanent on clothes.
