    DefaultStand alone MSM?

    Has anyone purchased MSM to supplement a g/c supplement that lacks it? I use stand alone MSM on my horse and was wondering if its available for dogs. Any good MSM brand recommendations? Thanks a lot!

    I use a regular human variety supplement of MSM, 1000 mg. Only Maddy gets it because she has problems with her elbows and wrists. They all get human G/C and then I add that MSM for just her.

    I did the same with Mick. He also got ArthriSoothe instead of gluc/chon. I found buying the horse formula (Powder) was much more economical than the tablets they make for dogs.

    The lable said to double the dosage for the first 2 weeks, so I started Mick out with 1/4 tsp a day, then dropped it to 1/8. The last year or so of his life, I went back to 1/4 tsp (after talking to my vet about it). Mick weighed 75 pounds when I started the ArthriSoothe. He lost about 10 pounds over his last 4 years due to muscle loss from laryngeal paralysis. My vet & I are convinced that, besides helping with old age stiffness, etc, the ArthriSoothe helped slow down the progression of the LP.
