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'!).

Continuous treatment promotes faster healing!

The Veterinary Preference Thrush Treatment is a fast-acting treatment for Thrush and White Line Disease with a unique delivery system. The active medication is saturated into self adhering cotton rolls that, when pressed into the V (sulci) of the frog, ensure constant delivery of medication to the affected area. The medication leaves no stains on hoof, clothing or floors.

50 pre-moistened pads

Replace pads once daily.

    Veterinary Preference Thrush Pads is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works quickly These little rolls push right into the deep crevices of the hoof and frogs with a hoofpick and start working immediately! They stay put pretty well, but even when they do fall out in turnout or the arena, you can still tell that they've had enough time to treat the thrush. I turned to these when the Thrushbuster just wasn't cutting it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works I think this is a product that should be in every well equipped groom's box or tack room. I work with a large number of horses many that have had poor farrier care. I have used this product on horses with every level of thrush, seedy toe, cracks I want to keep dry, white line. I have used it on barefoot horses, shod horses and as hoof packing on horses with pads.I have found on the barefoot horses, even those in turn-out, the mild thrush cases the pads fall out but what I also realized is that the medication had been applied to the affected areas and by the time the pads fell out the thrush was usually all dried up. On horses that I have to use the product for multiple days (moderate to severe) I have found that when the pads aren't staying for 24 hrs or more. The thrush is cleaned up & I either squeeze the medication from the pad or use the spray bottle (yes I have both)Bottom line I love this product and I use it on everything I need to "dry" up on the horses feet. I use it on barefoot horses, shod horses and even underneath the pads of horses that get them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for deep crevices! I used this product on a few horses at or barn who had severe thrush. It dried their frogs up in literally a day or so. Definitely not designed for a flat footed hoof, but I am able to wedge it into the frog as well as along side it. Awesome for horses in a stall, but stayed in long enough to make a difference on pasture horses as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very effective First time trying this product after a referral from my farrier. My mare has the deep cracks in the soci extending into the heel. This product works. Stays where you put it and is effective in every way. Definitely will keep in my medical bag for further use if needed. A -1 product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product My 12 yr old Walker that I've owned for 2 1/2 years has suffered from chronic thrush for several years. I applied the pads and after the first treatment very surprised with how fast it worked. It wicked the ingredients into his foot and it seems like it was drawing the thrush out and into the pads. My farrier gave him a really good trim to his frogs 1st then we applied the pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for specific purpose I have one horse with very deep crevices/grooves in his hoo on either side of his frog. It causes him to be prone to thrush right in the crevices. These are a GODSEND for treating him. I take the pads and use a hoof pick to press them into the crevice until they're stuck. They'll really stay in there-- I've even had them stay in through hours of turnout. They stay in mostly because of the deep crevices. If I tried to use these in my other horse, they'd fall right out. So I wouldn't recommend these for general thrush treatment-- but if you have that "deep crevice" issue-- these are perfect for that area.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stayed in place really well! Bought these because I liked the idea that they would stay in contact with affected areas longer than a quick rinse, but was skeptical about whether they would stay in place on my unshod mare. But they did! You just jam them into place with the point of your hoofpick & they easily stay in overnight until you pick them out.No stains everywhere, no nasty odor, no wasted product.They're best suited to horses with deep grooves alongside or in the middle of the frog OR horses with shoes, but if your horse has wide-open hooves & no shoes he probably doesn't have thrush anyway! :)Moved my mare to a barn with cleaner stalls & frankly that's done more to alleviate the thrush than anything, but I was extremely pleased with the effectiveness of this product. Highly recommended.
