I’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)?
MSM (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?
The main benefits of organic sulfur for pets are it’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
Organic sulfur is an effective and natural pain killer, 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 permeability of cell membranes,fluids can pass through tissue cells more easily, and therefore relieving 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.
Suggested dosages for pets
MSM is generally safe and simple to give. The brand I recommend is called gold standard organic sulfur. In my humble opinion, gold standard organic sulfur is the safest, most effective and cost effective sulfur brand out there.
If you pet is pregnant or taking medications, especially on blood thinner, it is wise to consult a qualified vet before giving organic sulfur to your pet.
Organic Sulfur is the premium version of bio-active mineral as its pure, with zero additives and fully natural to the body. 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.
Small dogs under 20 lbs: 1/4 teaspoon per day
Medium sized dogs 20-99 lbs: 1/2 teaspoon per day
Big dogs 100 lbs or heavier: 1 teaspoon per day
Sprinkle some sulfur in their water container every day to stop them from pulling their neck feathers.
1/4 teaspoon per day
Houses that weigh 1000 lbs or 453 kg:
First week: 1 tablespoon 2x a day
Maintenance level after first week: 1/2 tablespoon 2x a day
