MSM better than Glucosamine?

So my breeder has been taking Glucosamine for her bad back for years and it did nothing for her. She started taking MSM and her back is 100% better after 2 weeks of use. She now uses MSM supplements for all her malamutes.

MSM is supposed to help with bad joints and connecting tissue. I checked the local health food store and they sell 300 1000mg tablets for $8.99.

Anyone else try MSM supplements with their dogs?

I believe the best is the combo of msm/glucosamine/chondroitin. You can get a liquid that contains all three. Liquid is better than tablets as it is quickly and easier absorbed than tablets. Make sure that it is a good quality, I heard that Synflex is great.

I use K9-MX for Tron.He has a bit of arthritis..But since he has been on this,he's been doing great.I also give him Shark Cartilage treats.

It's a canine version of Lakota.I got my dad using the Lakota for his arthritis.And it works wonders for him.

My dog takes the msm/glucosamine/chondroitin supplement from jameison. I was giving him the wellness brand ones, but then I heard that the "human" supplements would be okay, and much less expensive.
He is almost finished with the jameison ones, so where can i buy Synflex or K9-MX?
He also gets Yucca Schidigera Extract, Chondroitin Sulfate, and Glucosamine Hydrochloride in his merricks dog food, and i don't want to over-do anything (for a 16lb dog)
