Why just keep
yourself healthy? Horses just like any other animal or human can
benefit from the use of MSM supplements. The best place to start
is their diet, for it is the main foundation of their natural
health care. Scientists say that mineral deficiency subjects our
animals to more diseases, along with aging and sickness. John Metcalf, DVM, a well-known equine practitioner, started his
evaluation of MSM to treat a variety of illnesses in horses,
including chronic muscle soreness, epiphysis's, acute laminitis,
pleuritis, recurring digestive tract disorder and arthritis. MSM

is now widely acclaimed by veterinarians and horsemen for its
contribution to equine health care and horse ailments in the
equestrian world. MSM for horses is the food supplement known
and used by many horsemen and veterinarians throughout the horse
and pet industry. MSM for horses and pets has helped ease a
number of horse and pet ailments. MSM was discover by Dr.
Robert Herschler. MSM for horses is a 100% pure licensed dietary
supplement. MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane ). MSM for
horses is an organic compound that comes in the form of a white
crystalline powder and is derived from DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide).
DMSO is a topical anti-flammatory agent originally produced as a
by product of the wood-pulp paper industry which was used to
treat horse ailments. Horses are quite susceptible to many
common diseases that require immediate attention from either the
owner or a veterinarian. Since most horses are social animals
whether as a border at a local stable or among other horses in
the pasture, disregarded communicable diseases can lead to
disaster. Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis is a neurological
disorder that quickly manifests itself in healthy horses.
The parasite sarcocystis nueuona enters the horse through
infected food and water supplies and settles within the horses'
spinal cord. Symptoms include a loss of appetite,
depression and a loss of motor control as the disease
progresses. EPM is a master of disguise. This
serious disease can be difficult to diagnose because its signs
often mimic other health problems in the horse and signs can
range from mild to severe. More than 50 percent of all
horses in the United States may have been exposed to the
organism that causes EPM. The causative organism is a
protozoal parasite named Sarcocystis neurona. The disease is not
transmitted from horse to horse. Rather, the protozoa are
spread by the definitive host the opossum. The infective stage
of the organism, the sporocysts, are passed in the opossum's
feces. The horse comes into contact with the infective
sporocysts while grazing or eating contaminated feed or drinking
water. Once ingested, the sporocysts migrate from the
intestinal tract into the bloodstream and cross the blood-brain
barrier. There they begin to attack the horse's central nervous
system. The onset of the disease may be slow or sudden. If left
undiagnosed and untreated, EPM can cause devastating and lasting
neurological damage. Working horses, particularly
those which compete on the racetrack or in the show ring, suffer
from sore backs. A horse with a sore back will show a decrease
in performance. Observant owners will notice discomfort,
bruising, hair loss and even open sores in the saddle area.
MSM has been used in the above horse ailments and have been
known to improve their ailment. MSM for horses is credited
with clearing up and preventing, epiphysitis (inflammation of
the growth center just above the knee) in fast young growing
horses. Overfeeding with a high protein diet is one of the
causes for epiphysitis. MSM for horses relieves a variety of
horse ailments and lameness problems along with reducing
inflammation and enhancing blood circulation. MSM for
horses was added to the diet of a thoroughbred jumper with
chronic back problems, after taking MSM his back problems
disappeared and was able to go onto a healthy and extended
jumping career. MSM cleared up epiphysitis in three weeks on a
young thoroughbred filly. Animals given MSM showed a delayed
onset of tumors, equivalent to 10 years in humans. Dietary MSM
also delayed the onset of tumors in the colon. MSM for horses is
not some magical potion, it basically clears up two things,
inflammation and enhances circulation. MSM is present in
food when it is very fresh, it can be driven out of any food by
even moderate passing, including the cutting and drying of hay.
It is important to supplement most diets with a pure source of
MSM for horses from MSM-Supplements Center. MSM is
an excellent source of sulfur for horses. Nutritionists,
veterinarians, and horse owners report excellent results from
the feeding of MSM on a daily basis. MSM for horses
provides a dietary source of sulfur, an element that is
important in the formation of connective tissue. Animals who
were given MSM crystals in their water supplies had lower death rates and
liver damage than the control groups, and had a longer life
expectancy. MSM is highly respected as a great pain
reliever arthritis supplement in the equestrian horse world and
for its many other ailment uses. Use
MSM directly into your pets minor wounds just as you would for
yourself. This is quick and easy and if the animal licks it,
all the better to help them heal.

Arthritis in dogs and cats
Arthritis can cause dogs and cats to become stiff or lame, they
struggle to get to their feet in the morning or cry out in pain
if they move the wrong way. Arthritis or joint
inflammation occurs in dogs most commonly when there are
degenerative changes in malformed joints, such as with hip
Dysplasia. Arthritis can also result from trauma,
infection or immune-mediated disease such as rheumatoid
arthritis. Very little arthritis is seen in cats. Although
some purebred cats are known to have joint problems. When cats
do have chronic pain the most common cause is osteoarthritis.
Trying to find pain relief for pets with arthritis can be
difficult and most veterinarians prescribe aspirin but it has
the potential for gastrointestinal problems, such as
hemorrhaging or even ulcers. Cats have it even worse because of
their unique physiology, which doesn't always respond well to
medicines that benefit dogs and humans. There are no medicines
licensed for use in cats to treat chronic pain. Most NSAIDs such
as aspirin, Tylenol, Aleve and ibuprofen are toxic to cats,
because the feline liver is unable to break down and process the
chemicals. Consequently, cats can't rid themselves of the toxic
byproducts of those chemicals. A single dose of aspirin or
another NSAIDS can be fatal to a cat.
