Purchase: Was counting on buying Thrush Buster because of the good word on it, but Tractor Supply didn't have any available (figures when I need it lol) and was in desperate need to kill some thrush my horses have due to the cruddy mud/weather. Paid too much: $19.99 plus tax, but hey it was the only store around that has horse supplies and that had something water proof to kill off the thrush. Couldn't order something online/catalog and wait to get it.
Likes: It works. It's not pleasant to smell, touch or apply, but it works.
Dislikes: Disgusting SMELL!!! I wore gloves while applying it and didn't get any on myself whatsoever but the fumes are SO STRONG it stuck somehow. Be sure to wear a mask...as it causes asthma to get worse/breathing problems. When I got home, the house smelled like Koppertox!!! YUCK! My hands smell like it still too...even so I wore rubber gloves! The green color stains clothes and skin, so be careful. The bottle design is careless and the stuff comes rushing out of the bottle too fast no matter how slowly/carefully you try to pour it onto the hoof. Somehow the Koppertox leaks out under the lid cap...it's annoying. You def. need a brush to apply it.
Quality: Stuff works. It stinks something awful. Comes in a dumb designed bottle that leaks. Stain, Stain, Stains!! Beware of this and be careful! I think Tractor Supply charged too much for what it is. It should have been half that...as others I've seen have paid that....but again, I was in a pinch and needed it ASAP.
Summary: Would have liked to use Thrush Buster...but was desperate and picked this stuff. Highly recommend getting other effective thrush remedies and saving this ThrushXXX as last resort. The smell, staining and application inconvenience is not practical.
