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


Handy 2 oz. bottle ensures easy application.

    Thrush Buster is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 204.
    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.

    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: 2016-09-28
    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.

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! The best treatment for thrush! I keep it in a separate plastic bag because of course it stains everything.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked with one application This product did what it said it would and worked after just one application. My horse got thrush from muddy conditions in his corral and Thrush Buster got rid of it quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my gelding's feet! I have a gelding that, while living in the desert, experiences horrible bouts of thrush thanks to his need to play in the water trough. I had tried three different kinds/brands of thrush killer before reaching for this out of desperation; the thrush was delving deep into his heels, much to my dismay. This stuff, amazingly, defeated the thrush in two uses. His feet are healing and I am so thrilled. I'll never use anything else but this! It's spendy but worth the price, and you don't need very much to get the job done.
    Date published: 2015-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Love, love, love this product. Not only does it work, but I also like the packaging. I don't end up with purple fingers, hands, clothing etc. I can precisely put it right where it needs to go without a lot of mess. If your horse has thrush, this stuff really works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Love this product!!!!! clears up my horse's thrush immediately, even under his pads on his hind end!
    Date published: 2015-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrush Buster After discovering my horse had thrush, which was confirmed by my vet, I bought and used ThrushBuster. Within a week, there was a noticeable difference and after two weeks, the thrush is almost gone. Well worth the money...
    Date published: 2015-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective This is a great product; I work at a barn with many lesson horses who don't receive thorough care from lesson students, so thrush is always an issue. I keep this handy to squirt in the crevices around the horses' frogs, if their hooves aren't looking normal, and it really works like magic! A bit pricey, but it's worth it :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well in clefts Keeps my tbs feet clean and clear unless it gets in the frog, then I need something stronger.
