Subject: DMSO

I'm curious about the question of using DMSO on a prolapsed
rectum. I've used it in the past on my horse but was told to
use rubber gloves and wash your hands thoroughly.

From what I understand of it, that it somehow increases your
skin's ability to absorb external elements directly into your
blood stream, example if your hands got dirty any of those
germs would quickly absorb into your skin and into your blood

I'd be concerned using it on a bum, especially when they do
the butt skid after the litter box.

I'd love to hear vets feedback on this, I may be listening to
an old wives tale.
