A bunch of people suggested White Lightning for treating thrush, so I decided to try it. When I got to work today I was so disappointed to find she doesn't carry it..... So I asked hubby to order some online. He looked at it and told me some great news! White Lightning when mixed with vinegar creates Chlorine Dioxide!! That's also the active ingredient in Clean Trax and Vetricyn. Chlorine Dioxide (Oxine AH) is what we used to disinfect our poultry facilities when we were raising a lot of chickens!!! So we have some.... somewhere. I have no idea where it ended up or if it's been in the sun at all, so I'm ordering a new bottle. The good news is it's a LOT cheaper than White Lightning. You can order a gallon for around thirty bucks (that's with shipping and handling so if you can find it somewhere without paying shipping good for you!).
Here is an article I found on using it for hoof problems. http://www.hoof-smart.com/2010/07/02/hoof-care/treat-and-prevent-hoof-infections-with-oxine-ah/
As soon as it gets here I'll let you know how it works out for Chrome. In the mean time I'll continue using my salt water to hopefully keep it from getting worse. I wish I'd started using my salt water as a preventative at the beginning of winter so that he never would have developed it, but I forgot. So for anyone who uses White Lightning, definitely check into this as a cheaper alternative (about a dollar per treatment for all four hooves if activated). :) Also don't worry, it's the exact same stuff, so you aren't sacrificing results or safety for price. You can google Oxine AH to see what all it has been used for.
