Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur-containing compound that is beneficial for dogs and cats. MSM naturally exists in animals and plants, but it can also be created in a lab. These supplements are a great option if your pet is suffering from arthritis or is in need of joint care due to old age.

We offer an MSM dog supplement so if you're interested in learning more, here are a few of the main benefits of using MSM for dogs and cats.

1. Strengthen Bones and Joints

MSM is well-known for improving the strength of bones and joints in pets. You can proactively prevent or slow down various musculoskeletal problems, such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and other issues.

2. Reduce Chronic Pain

One of the top benefits of using MSM for pets is that it helps to reduce chronic pain by limiting the transfer of pain impulses through nerve fibers.

MSM also increases the activity of cortisol in the body, which is a natural anti-inflammatory hormone.

3. Offers Allergy Relief

An additional benefit of buying MSM dog supplements is that it provides relief from a wide variety of allergies.

For example, MSM naturally blocks food, inhalation, and contact allergies to give your pet a much better quality of life.

Potential Downsides of Using MSM for Pets

MSM is a natural form of sulfur, which makes it a safe option for pets. However, it is essential to find the right dosage for your dog. Too much sulfur can cause kidney and liver problems or breathing difficulties.

Side effects such as vomiting and diarrhea may also happen, as it is important to reach out to a vet if your pet experiences adverse side effects.

How Do You Know MSM is Right for Your Pet?

MSM levels in your pet begin to decrease over time due to age. These sulfur deficiencies can result in a dull hair coat, brittle nails, connective tissue problems, and gastrointestinal issues.

However, MSM is considered a safe option for pets if it's taken in recommended dosages.

    Luis: We’re sorry to hear about the stomach issues your dog is having. Similar to humans, some animals may experience adverse reactions to certain supplements. This should be temporary, but we highly recommend speaking with your veterinarian as an extra precaution. We hope your dog recovers soon. Should you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to customer support via email and we’ll be happy to help.

    Hello, I added the msm directly to my dogs food. I didn’t dissolve it in water because it didn’t say that. My dog has really bad stomach cramps. Do you know if this will be temporarily?

    Is there a difference in the MSM you sell for pets, as opposed to the one you sell for people?
