Why We Love This

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.

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
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 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'!).

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.

    Veterinary Preference Thrush Pads is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised Thrush Buster has always worked for my horses as a weekly preventative during the wet seasons. One of my horses, Sun, has flat thin soles and difficulty with thrush in the central sulcus of his frog in his front hooves. Have battled back and forth with it soaking in Apple Cider Vinegar then applying Thrush Buster over the past year and this summer - even though it's been dry - the right front hoof just wasn't getting any better. Time to do something different, so reviewed all the remedies offered by SmartPak and thought I'd give THRUSH TREATMENT a try. Just as advertised ..... 3 days later the troubled hoof was looking good. The other hoof improved so much that when the farrier came to do Sun's trim and pared the frog there was no longer a crevice deep enough to put the medicated pad!! Still treating the other central sulcus - but mainly to keep the crevice filled with something good and keep debris out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrush busted I used this Product on 4 horses for the three days in central sulcous and beside frog. I would say the learning curve was rapid for application. Also some of these thrush pockets were pretty deep. I noticed At least 70% improvement in a week. Hind feet healed up quickly and fronts took longer. It has been very dry on ground for past few weeks so this was a good time to get on top of thrush. I will keep this on auto ship.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to use While it's possible that it works, it is impossible to use. The little sticks don't stay put without wrapping the entire hoof, which just isn't practical. The product just sits in my trunk because it's pretty useless.
    Date published: 2017-02-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use but will not stay on my horse This is a simple product to use if you can keep it on your horse long enough for it to do its job. My mare has a wide collateral groove and the pads just would not stay in place, not even long enough to get a boot over them. If her c. grooves were not as wide, it would probably have worked well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy application Was much more convenient and less messy than soaking cotton balls in iodine. Did not work that well for flatter hooves, but stayed in very well for hooves with deeper crevices.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting concept Works well with deep crevices. Not so well in shallow ones, they justell wouldn't stay in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was worth it Ok.. so when your Blacksmith tells you that you have true White Line Disease and after my break down I got busy and started the search for product that I could use. I found this and boy am I glad I did. It is a medicated cotton roll about 1.5" long and for my White Line I cut the roll in quarters and then pushed it up into the hoof where the Blacksmith had cut out, I have been using for a couple of weeks now and when my Blacksmith came back to check on it I got the fist pump from him, in other words it seems to be working, he even asked where I got the product. I am going to keep using this till it is gone and their are two bonuses of this product the cotton roll also is a nice barrier for the hoof when in the stall and it is for thrush too. Thank You Smartpak for carrying this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed My horse had a deep crevice in his right hind heel that I tried multiple products on to treat the thrush and close it up, but none of them fixed the problem completely. The crevice wouldn't close up enough and the thrush would come back. I found these when I was searching for something else to try, and really liked the idea of a medicated pad that I could shove into the crevice, as I had been using cotton balls to stuff medicine into his foot with before. I used three pads over a period of three days, at which point the thrush had been eliminated and the crevice had closed enough that a fresh pad would not have fit inside. Used turpentine on the fourth day and by day five the crevice was completely gone. Finally! I'm very impressed with the performance of this product as well as the convenience of this jar of pads. It comes with so many too, so I expect this to last me quite some time. I highly recommend this product for very stubborn thrush, and plan to keep a stock of it on hand always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! This is the second time I am buying the thrush pads. I have a horse that has very deep frogs and even though I clean her hooves out daily and more often when I am riding her but she still gets thrush as soon as the ground is wet. These pads help her tremendously and they are so easy to use. They also stay in place well due to her deep frogs. I definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use I bought this product last month and love it' I have a horse who suffers white line and loved the ease of use with this product. I will definitely re order!
