Why I Give My Dog This Supplement

Here are a few reason why I give Sulferzyme to my dogs!

Science lesson time!

Deficiencies in biological sulfur can result in the less than optimal functioning of our cells, tissue and organs in our bodies. Inorganic sulfur is poorly assimilated. Organic, biologically active sulfur is therefore extremely important for the health of every living organism. MSM is the natural source of biological sulfur to which we are adapted. MSM has been reported to have the following benefits for both us and our dogs.

Chronic Pain

MSM is a natural analgesic and blocks the transfer of pain impulses through the nerve fibers. MSM also blocks the inflammation process by enhancing the activity of cortisol, a natural anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the body.

If your canine pals suffer from inflammation in their joints, MSM can help.


MSM is a strong antioxidant, capable of binding and inactivating harmful free radicals. See my post on my wall describing this process and why we need antioxidants!

Couple MSM with the Wolfberry in Sulferzyme and you are giving your pup a huge benefit! An antioxidant jolt that is so good for her! And yourself.

Neurological Diseases

The brain is extremely sensitive to the effects of toxic materials such as heavy metals and organic compounds. Many of these compounds tend to accumulate in nerve cells where they can cause severe oxidative damage.

Neurological disturbances may be the result. MSM is one of the few antioxidants which can easily pass the blood-brain barrier. It may help prevent and repair oxidative damage and restore cell membrane elasticity and permeability. This allows the nerve cells to start excreting waste products. And means a healthier brain for Spot!


Does your furry friend lick his paws obsessively? He may have allergies.

MSM has been shown in studies to alleviate the symptoms of a large number of allergies, including food allergies, contact allergies, inhalation allergies, and others. The major anti-allergic characteristic of MSM is caused by its ability to bind to the cells in mucous and present a natural blocking interface between hosts and allergens.

Besides, MSM may alleviate allergies through detoxification and elimination of free radicals, and improvement of cell permeability. Reduction in paw licking!


One of the most amazing discoveries on MSM is its possible antiparasitic action against Giardia, Trichomonas, roundworms, nematodes, Enterobius and other intestinal worms. Animal studies include laboratory mice determined to have pin worms by fecal cast examination. They were given commercial food and drinking water, both containing 2% MSM by weight. After 17 days, fecal examination indicated the feces were free of worms and eggs.

We all know how easily our pets can have these conditions, let’s try to prevent it naturally.

Are There Natural Sources Of MSM?

MSM and its precursors return to the earth in rainwater, which contains a lot of MSM. Fruits and vegetables will absorb this rainwater and MSM can be found in most plants, with a content ranging from 1 to 4 mg/kg.

When animals eat these plants, they also assimilate MSM.

Cooking and heating will destroy most MSM in plants and meats. MSM is also lost when vegetables and fruit are frozen for a lengthy period of time, or when they are irradiated. Due to the realities of the modern food industry, in which a great portion of everything we feed our dogs is either heated, irradiated, or frozen for a period of time to preserve it, it’s no wonder that dogs and humans both suffer from a chronic shortage of MSM.

Is Your Dog Getting Enough MSM?

The therapeutic dosage for dogs is about 50 to 100 mg MSM per 10 pounds of body weight. Even dogs fed a raw, whole food diet might not be getting enough of this supplement, thanks to the industrialization of farming.

Toxicity is not usually an issue with MSM; in fact, it’s similar in toxicity to water. The lethal dose for humans is more than three pounds.

You would have to feed your dog a whole heck of a lot of MSM for toxicity to take place.

If your dog suffers from a chronic inflammatory condition or joint pain (our bulldog has joint issues and our older girl is showing signs of arthritis) you might wish to feed him MSM. Because it’s a synthesized product, extensive distillation is crucial to remove impurities such as heavy metals. Fortunately, you are getting the best with Sulferzyme along with the added Wolfberry powder to help keep your pup’s system in good working order. High quality makes a huge difference!

For our big dogs (50-70lbs), I give them each a teaspoon full of Sulferzyme powder twice a day with their food. They love the flavor and it helps keep them in optimum health along with a healthy diet, exercise and love!!

So the benefits of Sulferzyme powder as opposed to the capsules? No difference except for 2 things. The powder contains the MSM, Wolfberry, probiotics (gut health people!) and stevia to make it taste better if just mixing with water. The capsules have just MSM and wolfberry. I actually use both, but for our dogs I use the powder as it’s easier to mix in their food and with a bulldog, probiotics are a must!

So if you haven’t considered MSM and your dog’s health, I hope this helps educate you a little more in your choices!!
