http://www.thinklikeahorse.org/index-... - The above link is to the web page where I discuss this topic and have links to more information about the this topic. Thrush is can be a minor issue or it can be very serous if left unattended. I also talk about abscesses, puncture wounds, and allowing drainage. Prevention is better than correction. Pick your horse's feet daily, give good hoof care including trimming, picking and diet, keep horses out of moist, mud, urine soaked bedding, feces (horse, dog or cat Poop), and disinfect areas where the hoof comes in contact. Pick feet in different areas than where the horse can repack the hoof with old fungus and hoof picking.
For the cat injury and talk about puncture wounds, I am just letting it drain and squirting some hydrogen peroxide in the hole twice a day and letting it drain out for first couple of days, not just flushing with betadine and water mix to flush out and let drain and heal.
WARNING: Be aware not to pick a horse with thrush and then use the same hoof pick on another horse that does not have it. A simple wash with soap and water for hands and hoof pick will do, if you want to be really sure squirt your pick with bleach and water mix before using on another horse..
