MSM can be given to dogs to target various health concerns they may have, especially if they are struggling with their joint health and/or mobility.
Arthritis or Joint Concerns
If your 4-legged friend is battling with arthritis or joint pain, supplementing with MSM could be a key component in managing the health of their joints. Research shows that MSM has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce joint pain and improve mobility.
Certain breeds of dogs can be more prone to hip issues than others, such as German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retrievers. By supplementing from an early age with MSM it can prevent and help slow the deterioration of hips/joints and osteoarthritis. Your pet will be able to maintain its healthy mobility for longer.
MSM works as an anti-inflammatory as well as an antioxidant, and it's often referred to "nature's beauty mineral" due to the benefits it gives to hair, skin and nails..This also applies for dogs' skin and their coats.
MSM may have anti-parasitic effects on your dog's body. Giardia, roundworms, trichomonas, and nematodes are some intestinal worms that MSM can deter. However, if your dog is infected with a parasite, MSM shouldn’t used as a sole treatment method - best see your local vet.
The fact that MSM can reduce the over-response of immune cells and conserve their ability to react appropriately when they're needed, means it's a great supplement not only for pets but for people.
