MSM for dogs
If you are looking for nutritional supplements for your dog's joint health, you will inevitably come across the term MSM. What is behind this abbreviation and what effect MSM has on dogs is explained below.
What is MSM?
MSM is the abbreviation for the organic sulphur compound methylsulfonylmethane, which is found in both plant and animal organisms. For example, people ingest MSM with their normal daily diet through coffee or milk. As a dietary supplement, MSM is intended to prevent a sulphur deficiency in the body of both dogs and humans.
MSM as a dietary supplement for dogs
A sulphur deficiency can lead to numerous complaints. These include, for example, circulatory disorders, sagging connective tissue and joint pain.
MSM is intended to counteract this and in particular to have a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect. The manufacturers of dietary supplements with MSM for dogs recommend their products especially to counteract joint problems such as arthrosis or arthritis. In addition, organic sulphur is also said to help with allergies and improve the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract.

CBD oil as support for joint pain
Painkillers are usually an integral part of the treatment measures for joint pain. Due to the high potential for addiction and the sometimes quite considerable side effects, natural alternatives are becoming increasingly popular.
CBD (cannabidiol) is one such alternative, which is used very successfully in pain therapy and in the treatment of inflammatory diseases. The extract obtained from hemp plants is very easily digestible and is available as a food supplement, for example from Auxilium Elixir in the form of CBD oil in varying concentrations.
