The vet told me to continue stall rest combined with limited turnout. He also gave me a bottle of DMSO mixed with a type of steroid to bring down any trace inflammation. The DMSO is liquid and in a little bottle with an applicator built into the cap. My main point of this thread is to ask, should I wear gloves when applying this stuff? I never come in direct contact with the medicine, but should I err on the side of caution?
Also, what happens if it gets on me and absorbed into my blood stream? Not that I plan on this happening... Just a curiosity question.
And another curiosity question... Is my horse going to smell like garlic now?
