MSM for Horses
MSM for Horses
Veterinary interest in MSM has greatly increased over recent years. However, MSM has been used on horses for nearly 30 years. In 1983 John Metcalf, DVM, a well-known equine practitioner, started his evaluation of MSM to treat a variety of illnesses in horses. He has published his positive findings in several studies in peer-reviewed scientific periodicals, and generally emphasizes that MSM is of great value in maintaining the general health of horses.
MSM is now widely acclaimed by veterinarians and horse owners for its contribution to equine health care. Research has shown MSM’s importance as a dietary source of sulfur.
KALA Health offers MSM powder in quantities of 1-lb, 10-lbs and 15-kgs (33-lbs). Our MSM powder is premium quality PurforMSM (methylsulfonylmethane), and is identical to our OptiMSM which is the human MSM brand name. This licensed form of MSM is the only type approved for animal use, made under license of US Patent 4,616,039 and other US and international patents. Unlicensed MSM that has not been purified for dietary use, and usually is manufactured in China, is widely offered for sale. You can avoid the risk of these products by insisting on patented and pure PurforMSM.
We recommended feeding one heaping tablespoon (approx. 12 grams) twice daily for the first 7 days. Feed one heaping tablespoon thereafter for daily maintenance.
