Overview

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

Thrush Buster is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing beats this! I got a new mare just off the track and her feet were horribly infected. This stuff starts working after one use and had completely cleared up all the infection after a week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but IT WORKS! Purchased this for a new horse I bought that had thrush issues. I was amazed at how effective this product was. It was also very easy to apply with it's applicator bottle!
Date published: 2018-04-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Gold Standard This is the gold standard in stinky hooves. One star off because I've had a few where the nozzle pops off and the liquid goes everywhere. Check that the hole is clear and the tip is tight before every use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrushbuster My veterinarian recommended daily use of Thrushbuster to help my horse recover from White Line Disease. Smartpak's price was much lower than my local TSC . We have a long recovery time but I'm sure this will help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I’ve been using this for years after it was recommended to by as what many farriers use. Very happy with results
Date published: 2018-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from farrier recommended and it WORKS! I used to use the green stuff, but the container was always sticky, hard to open, the green got EVERYWHERE. Thrush Buster is certainly visible, but the container is easy and tidy to use. And it works! Recommended by my farrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sjbarn7 This is truly the most effective product for keeping thrush away!
Date published: 2017-07-29
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.
Date published: 2017-05-09
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.
