Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) - FOR HORSES, DOGS and CATS

DMSO = Dimethyl sulfoxide


DMSO itself has anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, wound-healing, immunomodulating, muscle-relaxing and dehydrating effects.

Above all, it has the rare property of being both fat- and water-soluble. As a result, it can penetrate deep into tissue and in some cases takes other active ingredients with it that would otherwise remain on the surface.

Since March 2022, I have been the official contact person for the use of DMSO in animals, in collaboration with Dr. Hartmut Fischer. (Newsletter 03/22)

Make an appointment with me now.


DMSO is used for the following diseases:

  • Allergies (feed, hay dust, grasses,...)
  • Arthritis/arthritis,
  • Asthma (COB/COPD, RAO),
  • Respiratory infections (cat flu, dampness),
  • Eye diseases (moon blindness, glaucoma, cat flu),
  • Autoimmune diseases,
  • Lyme disease,
  • Intestinal diseases (hyperacidity, colic),
  • Intestinal rehabilitation
  • Circulatory disorders (pododermatitis),
  • Inflammations (anal sacs, phlegmon),
  • Epilepsy (accompanying therapy)
  • Joint inflammation,
  • Hematomas,
  • Skin diseases,
  • Infections,
  • Ear infections,
  • Post-operative care,
  • Scars,
  • Renal insufficiency (cat!)
  • Pain,
  • Tendon damage,
  • Summer eczema,

  • (sports) injuries,
  • Tendency to thrombosis (REHE),

  • wounds (bite injuries),
  • ...


As a result of my further training, in addition to the positive properties of DMSO, I have access to the safe use of many other plants and natural substances as combination partners. These are used for a wide variety of illnesses and thus further extend the range of applications.

The odor

Those who take DMSO notice NOTHING. But your fellow human beings notice it IMMEDIATELY.

The metabolic processes that are responsible for the positive properties cause the characteristic smell of onions.

With dogs and cats (outdoor cats) you "only" notice it through the air they breathe. With horses, especially those kept in stalls, you have to be aware that the urine and the bacteria in it intensify the whole thing accordingly.

This is dose-dependent and usually does not occur when applied to the skin.

72 hours after the last administration of DMSO (via the feed), the odor disappears all by itself.
