    My understanding is that MSM is the / a metabolite of DMSO,
    a known anti-inflamitory.  Can you check with your DVM
    friend on this and let us know?
    My own one rat ex-racer TB studies show definate decreases 
    in inflamation using MSM as stated on the jar.  I've also
    used MSM as an anti-inflamitory agent in Blue when needed,
    such as when he popped a splint.
    Again, I'd rather see my endurance horse on a joint supp 
    that I don't have to worry about stopping before he goes 
    to a ride.
