The remarkable feature of Veterinary Preference horse thrush pads is our innovative design:

  • Other treatments must dry before setting the hoof back on the ground, which can take several minutes.
  • With the other treatments, when the foot is exposed to water or a wet stall, the medication is washed away.
  • Veterinary Preference is self-retaining, so the horse can carry on normal activity and be continuously medicated.
  • The active ingredient is natural acidified copper sulfate (also found in citrus fruit) which acts as a mild drying agent
  • The pads stay in the horses hoof to continuously medicate until symptoms subside
  • Replace pads once daily

  1. Holding the hoof in one hand, take a hoof pick and clean the hoof and sulci of the hoof and frog of all loose debris and dead tissue
  2. Remove a single moistened cotton roll from the container
  3. Place the roll over the affected area (use one pad for each area to be medicated) and the press the cotton into the sulci (or under the shoe or pad), with the hoof pick
  4. Press the cotton just enough to insure that a snug purchase is achieved
