Why can't humans catch horse Thrush, since the bacteria that causes it, also causes sore throats in people?
Is Thrush NEVER compounded by a fungal infection? Because one would think that treating it with a Antibiotic AND an anti-fungal would then help?
I loved the articles that Simkie posted, but has there been studies where actual infected tissue has been tested? I assume so, but the only "studies" I have come across has been from barefoot trimmers.
So, if, like I suspect, there is often times an fungal infection, then which came first? Did the fungus start first which lead to the infection, or did the bacterial infection start, which lead to a fungal infection deep in the sulcus?
Lastly, please don't fall into the trap of thinking that [as many barefoot care sites incorrectly state) equine thrush is a fungal infection. It's not. And if you treat a thrush infection with anti-fungals you might just as well save your money and your time.
