MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) comes in the form of a dietary supplement that provides a rich nutritional source of bioavailable sulfur to your pet‘s diet. MSM is found in most natural, unprocessed foods, but because of its volatility/fragility, MSM is readily lost when fresh food is processed and/or stored, therefore making it beneficial to supply it to the diet. In research studies, joints affected by osteoarthritis have lower sulfur content. And in a preliminary double-blind trial with patients with osteoarthritis, they found that MSM reduced pain after six weeks.
“It is my personal experience using MSM in canine feed trials over the years, there was a definite increase in mobility in those animals with arthritis. In young growing dogs with developmental orthopedic diseases: HOD, OCD and Pano - MSM helps to levels out growth patterns by correcting nutrient/mineral malabsorbtion in the body. I have seen significant benefits to using MSM for arthritis in seniors and in large/giant breeds prone to digestive upset and bloat and gastric torsion.”

I have a 9 year old bichon, a 7 year old big ole black male weighting in at 185, and my new girl a 8 mo. old fawn great dane. I am using the MSM as part of HOD kit 5 as my little Dane got HOD at about 4 mod. old. She was really sick. She had a mild relapse about one month ago.
I kinda had an urgent need to start the Nzymes and when I called they hurried and got it out that day! Oh my gosh. I had never had such a wonderful response in person - let alone on the phone!
The product itself has been great! My 9 yr old Rott has been like a kid again with the MSM and Liquid Health Level 5000.... my new puppy has also responded well to those and the Nzymes - she's going to be a giant size. (5 mths she was 50 lbs!)

I have been dealing with Giardia since adopting our 2 year old Dane. After spending hundreds of dollars at the vet, only for the parasite to return in a few weeks, I started researching and found the Great Dane Lady's website and started my research into this nasty parasite. I have changed his food and have the "Giardia" kit on the way, along with Panacur which I purchased on-line. I am happy to say, that just with the food change (Precise Pulse) and the
MSM, he is on the road to recovery. For the past two days he has had a normal bowel movement and is his puppy self! I am looking forward to getting rid of this parasite and maintaining his health with the supplements. Thanks so much for I was feeling so sorry for him and his health was just going downhill.

"Magnum" (Bernerse Mountain Dog/ Austrailian Shepherd cross)came to us from the shelter in mid January- all 90 lb.,unmannered inch of him - to join our family of 2 Berner girls. He brought along with him an upper respiratory infection (which he shared), heart worm (which, thankfully, he couldn't share), and a gimpy right front shoulder/leg. X-rays show nothing and his 5 week QUIET for his heart worm treatment did little to help his lameness. It is my hope that his MSM and his Nzymes from First Choice Naturals(along with his now good diet and other supplements) will be the answer to "fixing" him. It is still too short a time to REALLY tell, but I DO see improvement!!

Vitaflex MSM was recommended by the Great Dane Lady and I swear by it as well!
Received the products quickly without delay.
Glad you are finally carrying this product. Essential for good joint care, especially with large, active dogs like Great Danes and Weimaraners.
We have Giardia in the house and purchased the MSM to try to help in combatting this parasite. Everyone has done well on the product and we are pleased to have found it!

I use MSM for my dogs all the time. Recommended by the Great Dane Lady! Awesome product!
Karen Hayman says...
MSM--wonderful for keeping old and young joints and tissue healthy.
Oxy drops and Black Leaf Tincture--great to keep the yeast away.
I have been using these products for years now and am positive that they have helped keep my 2 dogs healthier and happier.
The customer service at First Choice Naturals is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient! I recommend the company to many pet owners.
Shipping: We ship Priority, Flat Rate Priority and International Priority rates. FCN is a small family owned company and not able to offer free shipping like the big ecommerce conglomerates who often buy almost out of date supplements and you have no recourse for returning product. However, what we have that they do not have is, first rate customer service, people to answer specific nutritional questions. We have real people here in the USA to help you and your vet with health problem solving and developing your pet's feed program. This is a service no other large companies offer their customers. Our customers appreciate the difference at FCN because we not only care, but have our own pets years of experience and we know nutrition!
