When a dog suffers from joint problems, dog owners are often looking for a dietary supplement that can actively support the dog’s joints. I think that supporting the body to help itself is an important component, and using natural aids is even more important. MSM dog
Therefore, today I introduce you to MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) and summarize the most important facts in a compact and easy to understand way.
MSM – what is behind the complicated name methylsulfonylmethane?
MSM is an organic, i.e. the body’s own sulfur compound. It is found to a large extent in bones, muscles and skin. As a component of chondroitin sulfate, sulfur plays a role in cartilage tissue. Even though this dietary supplement has been experiencing a lot of hype in recent years, the effectiveness of sulfur has been known for more than 100 years. In earlier times, mainly ointments and medicinal baths were used.
But MSM is not only found in the body itself. The sulfur compound is also absorbed through food. It is found in all raw and fresh foods such as meat, seafood, eggs, milk, fruits and vegetables. However, it is lost through heating or drying.

The effect is broad. Thus, it is said to support the immune system and intestinal function. It is used in joint diseases such as osteoarthritis, elbow dysplasia or hip dysplasia due to its analgesic, decongestant and anti-inflammatory effects. Joint mobility and resilience are also increased. In addition, MSM also relieves muscle pain, promotes blood circulation, has a decongestant effect and supports general fitness.
MSM, especially in combination with glucosamine, supports cell renewal of joint cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Skin, fur and claws also benefit. The brain is more efficient and the memory works better. MSM dog
Does MSM work for every dog?
Basically, it is here as with all dietary supplements: There are dogs for whom the administration of a remedy helps a lot, while others do not seem to benefit from it.

My experience with MSM
I myself have administered MSM to my severely joint-diseased bitch Snowy as a cure and can say that a clear improvement was also visible in her. Although you can’t cure joint disease like osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia with supplements, you can help joints be better nourished, relieve pain, and help your dog cope better with his joint disease.
