MSM in dog food

Methyl-sulphonyl-methane (MSM) is a natural derivative of pine bark which has been recommended for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis and other joint problems due to its anti-inflammatory effect. Studies on the medicinal effects of MSM have, however, been inconclusive.

Thanks for the description and why it is used.
I was hoping for a conclusive consideration as to whether it is harmful or harmless too. Is that yet known please?

Hi Dawn - there's certainly no indication that MSM is harmful at all but whether or not it has significant benefits for our dogs' joints is unclear. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence and I have met several dog owners that swear by it but scientific studies have so far failed to prove its effectiveness.

Pine is toxic to many animals. my pets have died from things that contained pine in the past.
