    What is Dasuquin with MSM for Dogs?

    Dasuquin with MSM is a comprehensive joint health supplement for dogs containing proprietary ingredients, which goes above and beyond standard glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplements. It has the same ingredients as Dasuquin, but with the addition of MSM, which helps to relieve pain and inflammation.

    For: Dogs

    Dasuquin with MSM for Dogs at Pet Meds
     
    Benefits:
    Comprehensive joint support health
    Contains glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, and ASU
    Protects cartilage
    Helps relieve pain and inflammation
    Allows pets to have a healthy lifestyle
    No adverse side effects

    How it works:
    Dasuquin contains avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), which have shown to help protect cartilage and improve joint function. The ASU also helps potentiate the activity of Glucosamine and chondroitin. The combination of all three ingredients supports cartilage production and blocks enzymes that break down cartilage in your pet's body. Glucosamine is a natural compound that is found in healthy cartilage in both humans and pets. It helps hydrate healthy joints by increasing the production of molecules that bind and hold water in the cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides cushioning which helps protect a pet's joints while exercising. Further research on the effectiveness of glucosamine is still needed, but many of our customers find it to be very beneficial to their pets. Dasuquin with MSM for Dogs also contains methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which has been shown to be helpful in relieving pain and inflammation.

    Cautions:
    None

    Dasuquin with MSM Dasuquin with MSM product review: There is not a bigger field of nutritional supplementation than those growing number of products used to help with a chronic health problem like degenerative joint disease and arthritis. This product is a wonderful combination of synergistic nutrients that work together in helping inflamed or degenerating joints, including glucosamine, chondroitan sulfate, MSM and Avocado/soybean. The manufacturer Nutramax has done a wonderful job in working with veterinary schools and researchers in demonstrating the efficacy of this product in clinical trials. An animal guardian can be assured that the quality and type of ingredients used in this joint supplement are genuine, which is always a concern when using other cheaper over the counter imitations sold at many health food stores. The biggest problem I have with this product is the big expense, as well as a palatability problem in a small percentage of animals. In my practice, I have found that the glycoflex line by Vetriscience has performed equally as well in my hands and at a reduced cost to Dasuquin. I have also found that the often reliable 1800petmeds super joint enhancer also can be worthwhile trying first due to the huge cost difference. No matter which glucosamine/MSM supplement one decides on trying, I do find that combining use with a wonderful antioxidant free radical scavenger like proanthozone from 1800petmeds, as well as an omega 3 fatty acid all work even better , when used together in soothing inflamed joints. However I must give this product an overall rating of a 5 with a taste/ease of use a 4. 08/05/2009
    Immediate improvement for us The end of August my 167 lbs German Shep/Great Dane mix jumped up quickly to chase the "deer family" from the yard and in doing so he hurt his hind quarters, which seemed to be heading for hip problems anyway this incident cause him so much pain he was rushed to vets, got morphine shot, put on RX of Tramadol 2 pils 2xs day as well as Carprofen 150 mgs 2xs day ( he was hyper towards rimidal) the addition of this Dasuquin had eliminated the popping sound from his body and he moves better. NOT a miracle but close too for us! 11/02/2014
    Save Your Money... So, after reading most of the reviews before purchase...I was very optimistic this product would be exactly what my 11 year old GSD needed to ease any aches & pains she may be experiencing. Sadly, I noticed no difference. I followed the instructions and gave her 2 tablets daily for a couple of weeks then 1 tablet daily thereafter. I won't be reordering. 02/04/2014
    Does the trick... I purchased this for my two small dogs (6lbs and 15lbs). My little guy, (6lbs) has auto-immune disease, and as a result has very swollen joints that cause him to limp when he walks. Unfortunately there is no cure for this, so the best thing I can do is just ease his pain. Since I cannot give him a pain medication such as rimadyl or metacam everyday because it would do more damage than good, I looked into Dasuquin with pain relieving MSM. I'm happy to say that Tristan's limp has seriously improved within the first week of use. He's still needs a little warming up after initially getting up from laying down, but his limping during walks has improved. My other guy has a damaged hip socket, and I can tell his movements have been easier...especially in the cold weather that is now approaching. he used to hold up his bad leg, and although he favors it when its very cold it's not as bad. Tristan will eat just about anything, so he's happy to take the chewable tablet out of my hand like a treat. Oscar is a little more weary but he eats it when I cut it in half and add it to his food. All-in-all I'm extremely happy to have found a supplement that helps alleviate my dogs pain! Just wish the price was a little better, but I guess you can't put a price on the health and happiness of your animals! 11/11/2013
    highly recommend I have two Yorkies (ages10 & 8). Both have the patella problems but the oldest had to have surgery on both knees at our state university vet school. Part of the post operative written instructions stated to put him on Dasuquin. I went ahead and put both dogs on this drug. I can't swear that the improvements in both dogs is due to Dasuquin but I can't find any other reason. My female (the youngest) will not take the pill as a treat but they mash into powder very easily and I put it over her dry grain. This is the only reason I gave a 4 star under taste. 10/14/2013

    My dog weighs 35 pounds and will be 11 this Christmas. She shows no joint issues at all and is very active. That being the case should the recommended 4 to 6 week 'initial dose' apply to her? It seems she should be able to have a maximum of a 2 to 4 week 'initial dose' regimen at the most. I don't want to overmedicate her.

    I have ordered this product with MSM for over two years and it always had liver flavor. The last bottle did not have it. So as a follow up to my first question, why are these no longer flavored? Does the liver flavor with MSM no longer exist at all?

    Thank you for your question. Nutramax may have changed their product to not include the liver ingredient for the Dasuquin with MSM as it is not listed as an ingredient.

    I have been giving these to my dog for over a year without issue. I recently re-ordered and it now takes a lot of coaxing to get her to eat them. I finally realized it must have to do with the lack of liver flavor. Why is this supplement no longer flavored? Does the flavored version exist anymore?
