Question: Comments/suggestions from anyone who has used formaldehyde for treatment of thrush on a horse. ?
My vet has suggested formaldehyde for treatment of thrush for my horse. She has is all the time, sometimes worse than others. Use coppertox to keep under control. She is an older horse and I don’t want her to go lame. I hope this is not too aggressive of treatment for her and I am curious about antibiotic treatment that I have read about and have not tried. Thanks.

I haven’t used straight Formaldehyde for thrush, but have used ‘Thrush Buster” which has formaldehyde in it. It works REALLY well. My biggest complaint with it is that the Gentian Violet (what makes it purple and also works as an anti-fungal) stains like crazy.
