Kopertox Thrush Treatment for Horses (16 oz.)
16 oz bottle
Kopertox is recommended as an aid in treating horses and ponies with thrush due to organisms susceptible to copper naphthenate. Thrush is a very common bacterial infection that occurs on the hoof of a horse, specifically in the region of the frog. The bacteria involved is Fusobacterium necrophorum, and occurs naturally in the animal's environment — especially in wet, muddy, or unsanitary conditions, such as an unclean stall — and grow best with low oxygen. Horses with deep clefts, or narrow or contracted heels are more at-risk to develop thrush.Horses with thrush, or those at risk for contracting it, are best kept in a dry, clean environment. Daily cleaning of the hooves also contributes to the prevention of thrush.
