Does anyone use DSMO and Previcox for their Horse?

My 20 year old mare walks on her back toes because of pain in the joint right above the hoof and the ankle joint. I give her joint supplements, and maybe that helps some, but the Dr. gave me DSMO and Previcox 227 to use on her. The Previcox 227 is a pain medicine by mouth and I looked it up online and all I see is the use on dogs, and the DSMO is used on humans. I am just wondering if any of ya'll have used or heard of these medicines and if you have used it before.

I keep some DMSO on hand all the time. Its great for when someone gets sore or has a swelling booboo. They claim you will get an onion taste in your mouth when you apply it bare handed but I have never experienced that
It looks like this if its what your talking about-

I prefer the roll on applicator though


ETA- look up DMSO equine for the horsey kind

My mom uses dmso and gives it too us if we have a wound or something, but it smells foul. dmso is supposed to bring things to the surface and i tell her that when i put i on, it about brings my food to the surface.

I got mine at a local feed store. I think you can get it at just about any equine/farm supply place. Valley vet has it I know.
DMSO Liquid Valhoma (Equine - Horse Health Care - Liniments)

Here Jeffers has it in the roll on
http://www.jeffersequine.com/ssc/pro...=1&pf_id=16064

I've ordered from both of these companies. They are reputable suppliers

I used the DMSO, like the pic posted by Vidaloco, on a mare with a stifle injury. She cut her rear pastern up really severely and then from being lame she injured her stifle so wasnt using her whole back end properly. It works great, you just have to rub it over the area and let it go to work. I do recommend wearing gloves as like someone else said you get a foul taste in your mouth (some do some dont) but it also goes into your system as well...so whatever you have on your hands will go into your body from this stuff, its just how it works. A guy died using this stuff, he had windex on his hands before he used it on his horse and it got into his bloodstream so just be careful! It does great things for injuries though! good luck!

Garlic.

It is very dangerous to apply without gloves. As mentioned - it will draw anything from the surface into the blood stream.

We use it only when necessary.
