Turns out this is not exactly true, and I have found to it be exceptionally helpful with my pets, and myself!
In the vein of Natural Remedies that can go a LONG way in helping decrease the pain and inflammation of arthritis, you should consider trying our Dog and Cat supplements. BOTH have ingredients to naturally help pain and inflammation. They are here:

DON’T use this they said…I was taught to NEVER use DMSO as it is some ‘unproven’ and ‘quackish’ remedy.

DMSO for Dogs and Cats: Natural Arthritis Relief and More
What Is DMSO Anyway?

DMSO, or dimethyl sulfoxide, is derived from Pine trees as a byproduct of the paper manufacturing industry and was first isolated in the mid-1800s by a Russian chemist. It is also naturally found in garlic as one of the root’s 70+ sulfur compounds.

What is DMSO used for?
DMSO is an exceptionally versatile therapy. For starters, it’s one of the few compounds that can be administered orally, topically, and through injection of both the vein and the muscle. The results of thousands of studies attesting to its health-promoting properties strongly support the view that DMSO is a truly significant therapeutic anti-inflammatory and that holds promise in managing a wide range of debilitating conditions.

Arthritis – With its ability to penetrate tissues, DMSO shows value in reducing pain and inflammation in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and possibly even gout.

Strains and sprains
DMSO provides rapid elimination of pain and increased mobility when used topically. It passes through the skin’s oily membranes and reduces swelling and inflammation almost immediately.

Drug extravasation injury
Extravasation refers to the escape of a drug into the extravascular space (soft tissue), either by leakage from a vessel or by direct infiltration. When chemotherapy drugs leak into surrounding tissues (extravasate), the effects can be severely damaging. Many studies have shown that DMSO application has significantly improved extravasation tissue injury in affected patients.

DMSO has been used to enhance penetration of alpha-interferon ointment in the treatment of herpes.It may be beneficial for our cats with the Cat Flu caused by a herpes virus.

Wound Healing
DMSO can accelerate wound healing by increasing blood flow and promoting the repair of damaged tissue.

Reduction of Bladder Inflammation
For cats with cystitis and dogs with similar bladder issues, the anti-inflammatory effects of DMSO can bring welcome relief. Apply it topically to the bottom of your cats abdomen over top of the bladder.

Assisting with Eye Conditions
In certain cases, DMSO can help in the management of some eye conditions, working as a delivery agent for other medications.

How to use DMSO

1. Get the Right Stuff. Don’t skimp on quality. Purchase pharmaceutical-grade DMSO from a reputable source. It should be at least 99% pure and not have any added fragrances or other ingredients.
2. Get some gloves, or wash your hands well afterwords. It does absorb through your skin, and as I have some arthritis, I don’t worry too much if I absorb some when I apply it topically to my pets.
3. Application. I drop it directly onto the skin over top of a an inflamed joint- Tula had a painful knee, so I first applied topical CBD, then the DMSO as it carries the CBD into the joint. For myself personally I used this for my regular injuries ( bike crashes, soccer, etc…) I’ll put on topical CBD then apply the DMSO. For wound care, change dressings regularly, applying the DMSO and then a clean dressing afterward.
4. Doses:
1ml/10lbs of body weight 3 times/day. Drop it directly over top of the affected joint.

P.S. I have been regularly using DMSO for both myself, and my dog Tula- it has been very helpful for Holistic Pain Relief
