alright its been about two weeks since tyson has been on dasaquin(sp) and MSM and i am seeing improvements. my quistion is, for those of u that have used MSM, how long did u keep your dog on it and/or are u still keeping them on the MSM?? am i going to be looking for a permanent difference with useing this product? or is it a life long supplement?? thanks

just a little back ground of this limping..i started noticeing the limping when tyson was done playing with another pup. initially the vet said it was a sprain and it never got much better with rest. i took him to another vet and OCD was brought up altho i did not get the x-rays and decided to use the glucosmine, chondroiton and MSM treatment and have noticed a big difference. also he does not limp while walking, i only seem to notice a seldom limp while gaiting

Ashley's Animal Ark has pretty competitive prices too = $64.95 for the Dasuquin MSM 150 tablets for Large Dogs - BUT I can't recall the shipping charges which can make a big difference.

Thank you Gayle! That is a very reasonable price and shipping is good too. I just worry when I order online as to whether or not I am getting the real thing. All three of those places are so much cheaper than the vet, it is ridiculous!

MSM is a sulphur compound which is supposed to make the Glucosamine/Chondroiton be more effective, so it is better to add it but the Gluc/Chond by themself will still be better than nothing at all. For dogs (or people) who have chronic problems these supplements are helpful but they are used by the body so need to be continually replenished to be effective for ongoing relief. If it is a short term injury, maybe these products will not be needed continually. However, as it is already added to many quality dry foods as a preventative, it is probably a good idea to continue to add these supplements until contradicted.

Hi,

I know you asked this question a while ago but I just wanted to jump in to recommend epetdrugs.com. They are great people. My nine years old shepherd (Rocky) is also taking Dasuqin MSM. When I ordered first time from them I actually took it to my vet just to make sure. He wasn't too happy about it but he did confirmed that its real.
Anyways, I just wanted to add my two cents.

Thanks for letting me know that. I actually decided to ask my vet if they would match the price of an online retailer plus the shipping charges and to my surprise they said yes! I knew that my vet did this for Frontline but wasn't sure if they would do it for the Dasuquin MSM. So I ended up saving a good bit of money and was able to get it locally! Yay!
