DMSO

Postby YorkDuroc » Wed May 06, 2009 10:13 am

I have a gilt that is swollen down by her foot. We've checked her pads and the foot in general and didn't notice anything in particular, other than that it is slightly swollen. Was wondering if we could possibly put DMSO on it. I have never used this product but have read about it on here. Thanks.

DIMETHYLSULFOXIDE (DMSO):

DMSO is a by-product of the paper industry and is able to carry some drugs rapidly through the skin and other tissues. There are no FDA approved uses for DMSO in food-producing animals. Approvals do exist for uses in horses and dogs. Industrial grade DMSO is widely available for various non-medical uses such as paint remover and other solvent uses. DMSO is often found stored on dairy farms or mixed with other drugs intended for use in dairy animals. Such use may lead to an increased chance of drug residues, off odor and off flavor milk.

FDA considers the use of DMSO for any veterinary purposes other than approved uses in dogs and horses to be illegal. DMSO is an unapproved new animal drug which is unsafe to use in food-producing animals.

The storage or use of DMSO is a violation of item 16 r.

I'm glad you enjoyed the taste.

Please, for all of you who intend to break the law and use substances on your animals that are not approved for food animals, make sure at the very least that you intend to consume the animal yourself. Do not risk giving the entire pork industry another black eye or we will be regulated out of business.
