Organic Sulfur For Dogs & Other Pets

Organic Sulfur For Dogs & Other PetsI’ve talked extensively about the benefits of organic sulfur for people. But wouldn’t it be great if your dog or other pets can also benefit from it too?

Well, guess what?

They can! Organic Sulfur is also safe and beneficial for dogs and other pets.

In today’s world, it’s not just us humans are under the constant assault coming from environmental and household toxins. Our canine friends and other pets are also under the same constant assault as well.

Over time these toxins can do a lot of harm to dogs and other pets. In fact, they can end up suffering a lot of the same health problems that humans encounter, such as arthritis, inflamed joints, back pain, and digestive tracts disorders, just to name a few.

In this article, I will share the following:

  • What is MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)?
  • What can organic sulfur (MSM) do to your dogs and other pets?
  • Suggested dosages for pets

What is MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)?

Organic Sulfur For Dogs & Other PetsMSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur containing compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle. It’s also found naturally in many foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cow’s milk, meat, seafood, fruits, and nuts, but is easily destroyed during cooking or the pasteurization process.

Sulfur is one of the basic building blocks used throughout the body to make a variety of biomolecules such as enzymes, collagen, amino acids, hormones, neurotransmitters, and much more.

It’s essential to the health of the skin, connective tissue, and for the promotion of cell regeneration, cell detoxification, and maintenance of cell membrane flexibility.

Although sulfur is present in all cells of the body, with the highest concentrations found in joints, hair, skin, and nails, the concentration of sulfur in the body begins to decrease with age.

As a result, your pet may develop dull fur, skin problems, joint pain, brittle nails, poor gastrointestinal system, and generally weak immune system.

So it’s important to replenish your dog’s body with sulfur daily as it is not stored by the body and is passed every 12 hours after being ingested.  

The recommended daily amount of sulfur for dogs is 50 to 100 mg sulfur per 10 pounds of body weight

Although sulfur occurs naturally in food, therapeutic benefits occur at levels much greater than what’s found in a regular diet. So if your dog or other pet consumes mostly commercial pet foods, it should be supplemented with sulfur since sulfur is easily destroyed by cooking and during storage. Supplementing is also helpful in the treatment of the various dog health problems mentioned above.

If you prefer to rely on getting sulfur from food sources, make sure your dog’s diet is raw and organic to keep as much of the naturally occurring sulfur intact.

What can MSM do to your dogs and other pets?

Organic Sulfur For Dogs & Other PetsThe main benefits of organic sulfur for pets are it’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.

Organic sulfur is an effective and natural painkiller, it blocks the transfer of pain impulses through nerve fibers (C-fibers). It also blocks the inflammation process by enhancing the activity of cortisol, a natural anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the body.

Sulfur also works by improving the flexibility and permeability of cell membranes, which makes it easier for cells to absorb nutrients, and waste products to be eliminated.

With its ability to enhance the permeability of cell membranes, fluids can pass through tissue cells more easily, and therefore relieve pressure and pain caused by swollen and inflamed cells.

Organic sulfur is also a strong antioxidant and has an anti-oxidative properties. This means it is effective in removing toxins and free radicals from the body. So if your dog or other pets have allergies, organic sulfur can help remove allergens (a kind of toxin) from the body quickly.

Organic sulfur is also given to dogs, cats, horses, birds and other pets for joint and connective tissue support, relief of pain as a result of arthritis, hip dysplasia, and joint problems, maintenance of healthy skin and hair, and relief of some allergy symptoms.

This natural form of sulfur is relatively safe and you do not have to worry about harming the health of your dog or other pets. However, some dogs are sensitive or intolerant to sulfur compounds.

As your dog or other pets begin taking organic sulfur, if they experience vomiting or diarrhea, these are normal and natural detoxification process. Be sure to keep an eye on your dog to monitor effects and benefits.

These symptoms indicate healing crisis, which means your pet’s body is adjusting in a healing way due to a sudden availability of oxygen and nutrients to the cells in its body. These symptoms will disappear as its body acclimatizes and stabilizes itself.
