DMSO is a natural compound, an unassuming by-product of the wood industry. It has been called a “miracle” treatment, has been shown to alleviate pain, reduce swelling, decrease inflammation, incite healing, and restore normal functioning overall.

It is closely related to MSM which is well known for its anti-inflammatory benefits and pain relief. MSM is typically taken orally and also can be absorbed through the skin. The difference is DMSO is mostly used as a topical product and is mostly just applied to the skin and used in eyes as well diluted with colloidal silver for ulcers and cataracts.

DMSO is a colorless liquid that became known for its ability to penetrate skin and other membranes and bring deeper healing to those areas where it is applied.

With this ability DMSO proved to be a wonder compound.

DMSO has also been used to clear cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma of the eyes. Which was another huge plus for the use of DMSO for people as well as pets.

DMSO Uses in Dogs-Why is it so effective?

Sulfur is found in all the cells of our own and our pets’ bodies. Sulphur is very much an indispensable element. It is needed for several chemical reactions involved in the detoxification of the body.

DMSO is an very useful pain killer, as it helps to block nerve transmission fibers that produce pain. It also lessens inflammation and swelling by eradicating inflammatory chemicals in the tissues. It is also useful for infection and killing pathogens deeper within the body in conjunction with colloidal silver.

As long as pathogens are within a cell, they are:

Extremely difficult to reach as they hide in places that medicines cannot reach

Keep the cell from resuming its normal, high vibe state.

This is where DMSO becomes so esteemed.

With its capability to increase cell penetrability, DMSO can take the colloidal silver into the interior of your pet’s cells, where these nasty pathogens hide out.

Once transported through the cell barrier by the DMSO, the colloidal silver can destroy pathogens skulking around and hiding out within.

How to Use DMSO for Dogs

Apply DMSO Wearing gloves as the liquid penetrates into whatever it touches. Apply right on to the inflamed areas. One warning is your dogs’ breath might smell a bit garlicky after application, but if you use the pharmaceutical grade DMSO is is typically not an issue.

While applying it you will notice an immediate heating sensation within the area and can often feel the heat increasing through your gloves. That is normal. It does tingle and have a slight burning/itching sensation for a few minutes after first being applied. 

Apply 1-3 times a day depending on the need 

One major benefit of DMSO for dogs is it’s applied topically, reducing the need for oral NSAIDs that can negatively affect your pet’s stomachs and organs.
