when my mare got kicked in the leg and developed a hematoma,we took her to the vet, where they perscribed DMSO, we put the DMSO on her once daily and she cleared up in a couple of days, now you can't even tell that there was a hematoma there, thanks DMSO!!
We use this to treat hoof rot when we are having a hard time dealing with it here in the rainy North West. We mix the DMSO gel with M0-SD SulfaMed-G powder. After a good trimming of the hoof we rub this on the hoof and cover carefully with vet wrap. The vet wrap will fall off in a few days and the hoof rot will be cleared up. Be sure to wear gloves when handling DMSO.
I have a very active Labrador retriever and she strained a muscle playing in the ocean. I rubbed some DMSO on her leg and she felt better within 5 minutes. Had to keep her quiet for a few days for her to heal, but every time she showed she was in pain I rubbed DMSO on and she felt better. I noticed she healed much quicker too. I highly recommend this product!
