Oxine for hoof soaking
I love using Oxine and citric acid to soak our sanctuary horses' hooves. This is a great product & great price!
Perfect for Chronic Thrush - inexpensive alternative to White Lightning
Our horses had chronic thrush for around 6 months. We finally gave up on the topical treatments (Tomorrow & Thrushbuster) and decided to try soaks instead. While we waited for this to arrive (after reading rave reviews of it and white lightning on forums) we did our first soak with Lysol. Less than a week later we followed up with this soak. We used IV bags and tied them around with vet wrap and duct tape for about 30 min-1hr. We looked at their feet and thought they had stepped in glue or something. There was semi-translucent material wherever the thrush was before. It was new hoof! It looked bizarre, and we couldn't believe it started to grow out in less than a week, but that's what it was. It was amazing how fast everything started to heal - especially considering we still kept them in a muddy paddock the whole time. We've been following up with no-thrush and athletes foot spray just to be safe.
The downside to this is that you have to mix some and use it the same day. So you can't keep it in a spray bottle and spritz for thrush prevention. But for soaks, I highly recommend. This has the same ingredients as white lightning, but you get so much more for lower cost. I used both the syringe version and the small bottle version of white lightning before, but it went so fast that it really wasn't a good solution. This big gallon is awesome, and you only have to use a little each time.
Very Effective Product & Distributor
"This is an excellent product (Item #15103-208 OXINE, Kit, Gallon & 1 lb Citric Acid) from my perspective. I used this product in the chicken coop with my pet chicken present breathing mist from a vaporizer. I have done this for several 15-20 minute periods a week, for several weeks, to kill the fungus that affects the lungs and neck of a chicken which causes respiratory problems. In this application I do not use the citric acid, just the Oxine diluted down at 6.5 Oz Oxine to 1 Gal of water. There were almost immediate positive results. The product is safe to handle and breathe and I actually stayed in the coop breathing it so as to calm my pet hen the entire time of each treatment because the noisy vaporizer made her a little skittish.
In a few weeks I will remove the straw bedding and shavings from the coop and use the Oxine with the Citric Acid to kill mites and other nuisances. The chicken (and myself) will not stay in the coop when I do this, and since I do not have a fogger (preferred) I will again use the vaporizer.
I find this product well recommended on web-site searches and Revival Animal Health’s price appeared comparable, actually lower, than most other on-line vendors. I also highly recommend Revival Animal Health because of their dependability and excellent communication. "
