bcnewe2 Posted August 3, 2013 Report Share Posted August 3, 2013 Has anyone used DMSO on a dog here? Jesse the lgd has strained/injured her shoulder. The vet said is wasn't anymore than that but unless I could keep her contained for a long period of time that she would or could be off for months (he said 6-8) for total healing since she is about impossible to contain. I locked her up in the barn for a few days, she dug and totally upset herself. She seems way more tender when she lays around then if she's moving. I was discussing this with my family and my DD suggested using DMSO to help her feel better. My DS says there are conflicting reports about it and didn't recommend it. Vet said no pain meds so she can self regulate but that's not working to well or it's killing me to see her in pain I can't imagine it getting better in that many months. Putting her in a crate causes her to go a bit crazy and she bites and digs. So that's not helping either. I worry if I leave her locked up in a stall that she will dig her way out. Any suggestions or advise on the use of DMSO? I'm going to talk to my vet but he is out of town for the weekend. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
