Hi Friends,

I wanted to know if anyone has had any success using MMS on their dogs to treat arthritis?

I put my dog onto raw food a few months ago and now weaknesses are starting to show up. I haven't taken him to a vet for an official prognosis but he is limping, avoids putting weight on foot, slows in walking, trouble jumping up onto surfaces, is stiff after rest etc. I've inspected the foot which is fine and I sense it's likely arthritis. In retrospect the signs were there. 

I want to try bone broth with an activated drop in the mornings and/or evenings.

He is an 8kg Throwback Pomeranian.

Any advice on experience or dosing would be great. Situation is not dire so want a more gentle long term approach as I wont be able to dose him hourly. 

Thanks so much in advance.

Michelle

I would think putting him on Raw Foods would help him be healthier.
I wonder why you are associating the diet change with the health issue.
It could be related, or it could be completely unrelated.

You didn't day how old he is. (or where you are located -- are you in a Summer or Winter now?)
Getting arthritis like that can happen any time, but I would think Summer would happen less
and Winter more likely.

And the question arises, is it arthritis, or did he injure his foot/ankle/leg?

I always suggest people use Jim Humble's "MMS Health Recovery Guidebook".
There is a (Non-Human) Animals chapter there that shows how to dose based on
the animal's weight.

If you can't do hourly for eight hours, then I would "do as hourly as possible".
If you have to work, give him a dose or two in the morning, and then maybe 4 doses in the evening.
Something like that.
But anything is better than nothing.

You can also try putting SCS in one of his water bowls.
I worry about putting it in his only water bowl, just in case that interferes with his
drinking water, which you don't want. Especially in an older animal.
Jim mentioned anecdotally that animals will tend to drink the water with
the SCS like they know it's good for them or something.

I don't know if anyone has checked out Bone Broth as a valid liquid, or not.
I use Pacific Foods Organic Free Range Chicken Broth for my cat.

If you do a Search on this forum, you might find additional information.

I'm planning on starting my 11 pound terrier who has a growth on her face (we paid ridiculous $$$ to have it tested...) and terrible itching allergies on MMS. I do have the book 😊 but it seems like many users report they do the MMS unactivated in their water. And it seems like your response to Astro is suggesting SCS (that's unactivated MMS right?) the same. It seems they have enough acid in their stomach to naturally activate it.... Many thanks, Judith

I've used DMSO for a long time personally but just getting comfortable to use MMS myself and now have an urgent need to treat my animals and myself for bcc on my forehead...

If the animal will readily drink the water with SCS in it, then that is a way to go.
I don't know about dosing amounts, though — how much to use.

Jim Humble's "MMS Health Recovery Guidebook" has amounts for MMS
based on the animal's weight. It would be nice if we had charts like that
for SCS dosing in drinking water.

I put the activated MMS1 (using HCl) in about 1/2 teaspoon of chicken broth.
One of my cats licks it up, the other wouldn't touch it.

But I want to add a water bowl with SCS in it as an alternative.
You need to be careful with cats so they don't get dehydrated,
so I am worried about ONLY giving him dosed water.

ALSO, you need to make sure it is CLEAN water, as pure as possible,
but NOT DISTILLED water, as that is dehydrating and also leaches out
minerals and such. So no tap water with Chlorine or Fluoride in it.
Well filtered tap water should be okay. Or "bottled" Spring Water like
they sell in stores.
I am always worried about any trace chemicals in the water reacting
with the SCS. (or ClO2)

Michelle,

One of the best things I found to help my 12lb dog with arthritis was adding a vitamin with glucosamine. I buy one on Amazon it’s a 10-in-1 Multivitamin made by Pet Honesty. It made a big difference! At age 8 she was at the vet multiple times for joint issues and knees popping out of socket. I started those vitamins at that time and she’s now 12 with no joint problems and knees have been fine ever since. 

I just started her on MMS for a benign growth and I’m doing the activated drops with chicken broth. I’m really hoping that’s a stable liquid but I haven’t done the test the book recommends to test it yet. However, after reading the success of just using inactivated drops in water, I think we may switch. That’s much easier.

I have tested and use Pacific Foods Organic Free Range Chicken Broth.

There is a difference between "Active Dosing" (activated MMS)
and "Passive Dosing" (SCS in their drinking water).

"Active Dosing" is probably preferred for most health issues, especially egregious problems.
"Passive Dosing" is particularly good for Maintenance.

I am going to do both now.

I tried SCS in water and neither dog would drink it. I then tried adding 1/2 cup organic chicken brother to 1/2 cup SCS (1/2 drop solution) and they both lapped it up. I did that once yesterday and also gave them each 1 Tablespoon of the 1/2 drop SCS water over their lunch. One of our dogs threw up bile this morning (he does occasionally do this anyway...); the other seems fine. The dog that threw up seems fine since then but I'm wondering if I should go down to 1/4 or 1/8 drop today and try again? Any thoughts?

If your dog has a history of throwing up anyway, you might want to try another day
or two and see what happens. If they throw up again, you might want to do the
halving technique.
1/2 drop in 1 cup broth and water is pretty low, though, so I would be surprised if
it would be the cause.
You probably don't even need to use that much liquid.

That broth idea is a good idea. I'm going to try that with my cat, too.
He starts balking at more then 7 drops activated MMS1 and 4 drops CDS.
