Why We Love This

Hooflex® Thrush Remedy is the effective treatment for hoof thrush that kills bacteria and fungi, and eliminates the foul odor associated with thrush infection. It is highly effective and non-irritating. This clear formula provides three distinct advantages over competitive formulas: it will not sting, stain, or dry the hoof. Hooflex Thrush Remedy is very easily applied with the special squeeze applicator that is specially designed to reach deep into the frog where thrush organisms breed.

Made in the USA

  • Highly effective

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Thrush Remedy is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for treating thrush I have used Absorbine Hooflex Thrush Remedy in the past and it's worked really well on every horse I've used it on. It's easy to apply and virtually no mess. Every once in a while, when I'm not paying attention, I pour out more than I need and make a mess ;) But all in all great product for treating thrush and SmartPak has at a great price!
    Date published: 2017-04-10
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great... I bought this product in hopes that it would treat my horse's thrush... it didn't work... the nozzle was hard to cut, and then it comes out way faster than imagined, leaving a mess on the floor. I wouldn't recommend this product to someone who has a horse who routinely has thrush.
    Date published: 2017-03-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I'm very happy with this product. Easy to use and no mess to clean up, since product is clear. Has prevented thrush so far in this rainy season
    Date published: 2017-02-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST! This saved my horses feet through our recent rain storms in SoCal. The most rain we have had in 2 decades! They are in a large pasture with covered areas, but made wonderful trails of deep mud! Their feet stayed fantastic - no issues. My Farrier also commented on how well their feet did and that I made a great choice to use this product. It wasn't always fun with slimy muddy feet, but I used probably 2 bottles in 4 weeks because I doused them every other day plus I used the hooflex hoof dressing (with the brush) and slathered it in and outside the hoof (2-3 times a week). Very happy with this product!
    Date published: 2017-01-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great thrush med for my rotation I really like the fact that it is clear and the way the bottle works. My horse did seem to act as if it might burn but it seemed to get the job started. My horse has Cushings , lives outside , and is prone to thrush which is why I rotate products as one does with shampoo.
    Date published: 2016-12-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works Thrush buster wasn't working so I tried this. It doesn't burn and it's mild to prevent thrush while also getting rid of it. Thrush buster is more expensive than this so I'm really happy I found such a great product. It also is clear so it doesn't stain and that's really good too
    Date published: 2016-12-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works! My horses thrush had started to clear up. I like that this product is non staining.
    Date published: 2016-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, easy to use and not messy I have been using this for many years and have always had good results. I sometimes try other products but always come back to this one. I usually use it weekly to prevent thrush from developing and it works great without drying the hoof out.
    Date published: 2016-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective product Very effective, yet gentle product to trey and prevent thrush. A must have!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job! I've been using the purple thrush buster for awhile, but wasn't seeing a lot of results. A friend recommended this and within a day I could tell a difference in the frog.
    Date published: 2016-02-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I trust this product My horse and I live near the Gulf of Mexico, where rain seems to be a daily occurrence lately. I apply this to his hooves every other day and it has kept thrush away, despite the fact that he spends the night in a pasture which is super muddy. I would recommend this product and will definitely buy it again.
    Date published: 2015-12-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I love this stuff, my gelding has naturally deep frogs and we are always giving him preventive treatment to avoid any real thrush. This stuff is so good it keeps his frogs healthy and actually he was grown some healthier looking frogs. It's clear so no stains and it doesn't sting him either
    Date published: 2015-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No stains! My farrier always comments on the great condition of my horses hooves, this product is one reason why. It works really well at treating thrush etc. without staining you, the barn aisle or your horse. It also has a pleasant smell. What more could you ask for?
    Date published: 2015-09-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff Works very well to help keep thrush in check. my horse is very prone so I am always on the lookout. good price and the applicator is easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works excellent! I use this as a occasional preventative for thrush in the muddy season. Works for me.
    Date published: 2015-06-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This has been a terrible year for thrush; we have been battling it since the end of winter with all the wet weather. This product is very user-friendly, good value for the money, and seems to do a better job than most products at controlling the thrush.
    Date published: 2015-06-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product! I've been using this for a while now and it's the only product that works consistently.
    Date published: 2015-03-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply and it works I used this when it is muddy out to prevent thrush and my horses have been thrush-free.
    Date published: 2015-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Customer! I use this product once or twice a week during mud season to prevent thrush. I live in Illinois where it gets pretty wet and muddy and I have not seen any signs of thrush at all in my gelding's feet this season. The mare I previously owned would get thrush all the time and this stuff would get rid of it in 2 or 3 uses. It is very affordable and has lasted a very long time (almost a year!) I am very happy with it so I am buying it again.
    Date published: 2015-01-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My horse has had ongoing problems with thrush in all 4 feet. This has been working better than anything else I have tried
    Date published: 2014-10-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fantastic I bought this because I needed a thrush treatment before my horse ever got thrush. I original got it from a different website, but my second bottle came from here because it was cheaper. My trainer always had a bottle of this somewhere in her barn, so I figured why not get one for my barn? I was amazed at how fast it worked. The next day, the thrush was gone. I was a little wary, because I used to volunteer at a barn, and all they used was Kopertox, because their vet recommended it. The majority of the horses all had constant thrush, even though they were treated twice a day. I am not bashing kopertox, just it didn't work in wet, humid climate. Hooflex did not let me down though.
    Date published: 2014-09-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally an easy solution to WLD problems I bought this product sort of out of desperation. I have a 17.2 hand warmblood that developed White Line Disease in his RH last year. It was so advanced the vet cut away half his hoof! After a whole year of working to grow out the hoof, just as I thought it was over, it came back in the same hoof but in the other side! This time, I just cleaned out the area under the hoof wall and did a lot of soaking with White Lightning. However, I noticed that it was still not 100% gone! So, I tried this product, and in short order, it destroyed the infection. I used it according to the label, and just stuffed cotton up into the cavity. It is clear liquid and very pleasant to use, which you cannot say about very many hoof products, and for me has been much more effective than the green stuff. Of course, each horse seems to have his own biochemistry, so basically you just have to try things until you find what works for you.
    Date published: 2014-08-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for maintenance I always have this in my tack box. My farrier recommended it to me and so far it was worked fine. My mare has naturally very good hooves, so her episodes of thrush are mild and can be easily treated with this in just a few days of use. It is great because it doesn't dry out the hoof, so you can use it every day for maintenance without destroying the hoof. I would go to something stronger for a severe case of thrush, but this is good for mild cases and protecting your horse's feet every day.
    Date published: 2013-10-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate Thrush Treatment While it's not my favorite product, it does work. However, it takes more frequent treatments for a longer time than the leading brand. It's cheaper, but remember you're using more! It is nice that it doesn't turn everything purple.
    Date published: 2013-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Thrush treatment! I don't usually have a lot of problems with thrush, because I do not turn my horses out when their paddock & pasture is muddy--we have some active youngsters and I just will not have them slipping and sliding around during turnout. When I do have an issue with someone's feet being thrush-y, my immediate go to is the Absorbine thrush remedy. Within a couple of days use, you can tell a huge difference with feet staying more dry & the horrible thrush odor being less. I use the product twice a day, after I pick out the affected feet. This definitely works for me!
    Date published: 2013-01-30
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I bought this stuff, thinking I'd save myself a whopping dollar instead of Thrush Buster, and it'd do the same thing. I was very wrong. I used it after thoroughly picking my horse's feet both before and after riding every day for 3 months and her thrush only got worse! I bought Thrush Buster and in two uses, it's A LOT better, and almost completely gone. I was even talking with others at my barn, who agree that this stuff does nothing and that Thrush Buster is the way to go!
    Date published: 2013-01-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Customer I'm pretty pleased with this product. I start putting it on during the humid, wet months, before I start noticing much of a problem, so I'm not sure how fast it would work on a really horrid, thrush outbreak. But I like the fact that it's easy to apply and without any of the mess that some of the products have. No stains on the concrete or on my hands! And, some of my fellow riders have this same product and refuse to go back to anything else.
    Date published: 2012-03-27
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesnt make a difference When you apply this product to the hoof, it comes out way to much! There is wet marks all over the barn floor when I put this on my horse's hooves. Very messy. Also, it does NOT work!!! My horse has thrush on a few feet and I have been using this everyday and it is not getting better. It is way to mild!! I do not recommend this product, defiantly not.
    Date published: 2012-02-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never fight thrush again! my gelding gets thrush if the tiniest bit of moisture is on the ground, I apply this twice a week and after it's been raining or muddy out and I haven't seen thrush in over a year!! I always have two of these on hand because I use them so much, I love them!
    Date published: 2011-11-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Thrush Preventative I prefer to use this thrush product as a preventative. It doesn't do the best at getting rid of thrush in a timely manner. However, it works well at preventing thrush. I use it after I pick out my horses hooves before riding or once a week for non-riding horses. I have one horse that is very thrush prone and like to use this 2-3 times a week on her. Overall a pretty good thrush remedy.
