I'm surprised because I work in a biological research lab and the bottle of DMSO has a lot of warnings on it precisely because it does penetrate human skin and will bring along with it anything that happens to be around, in this case the antibiotic/antifungal. Latex gloves most likely will not block DMSO; you would need nitrile or possibly plastics.
Luckily I don't have a bumblefoot pig but am a card carrying nerd and so was hoping to learn a bit. Thanks!
We've been battling bumblefoot in our 5 year old American breed male piggy. (Cokie) One thing we found that has really helped in addition to the antibiotics and foot soaks.... is a whirlpool foot bath. This was suggested by our vet to help increase circulation. What we do is use the bubbler for a small fish tank. Cokie is laid back enough to just sit with his one foot in a bowl of water with a little betadine added, and we hold the plastic bubbler tube in the water by his foot to make it like a whirlpool. We do this twice a day and have gotten very good results. Good luck!
Is very stange because it bleeds a lot and i'm not able to let it drain because any time i tried to do so my litle pig bleeds a lot.
He was beter with antibiotics and antiinflamatory drugs but i think that drainage is necessary.
Have any one seen a case like this? could it be just an hematoma? i find it rather odd
