I have heard that msm with glucosamine might cure my 8O lb gsd "KLAUS". He has a lesion on his spine, recently detected when looking for hip dysphisa. He limps and crosses his right back leg over his left one intermittently. My vet does not feel the leg problem is from his back so, for the time being 'KLAUS‘ is being monitored. My vet said, "KLAUS‘ SHOULD BE IN TERRIBLE PAIN. So far all he is showing is discomfort. If you have any info on lesions of the spine please advise. Also please let me know what products you recommend and the dose for my 8O lb 'KLAUS'. Thank you 'KLAUSES‘(human)

Sorry to hear Klaus has had this lesion on the spine. Any idea what the lesion is? Tumor, bone spur? Sometimes there is spinal nerve degeneration With out pain as in MS in humans. If he is not caring his leg properly there is certainly some impingement on some nerves. I do think some type of anti-inflammatory medication be indicated. We have such a formula that is safe with all conditions. You might give it a try and monitor the effect. Hope this has been of some help.
