All Natural Sulfer Nutrient Vita Flex is pure dietary methylsulfonylmethane, a natural sulfur nutrient. Vita Flex MSM is ultra pure methylsulfonylmethane, a naturally occurring source of bio-available sulfur, an essential mineral for both large and small animals. MSM is a form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, and is the primary metabolite of DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide). When DMSO is applied the majority of DMSO absorbed by the tissues is oxidized to form MSM. Since 1988, horsemen and pet owners have relied on the quality and value of Vita Flex MSM to deliver the benefits of this unique ingredient.
Sulfur is critical in the formation of collagen and glucosamine - which are vital components for healthy bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons.
MSM is recommended by veterinarians for animals with ligament, tendon, muscle, and joint conditions.

MSM is widely acclaimed by veterinarians and horsemen for its contribution to equine health care. Research has shown MSM's importance as a dietary source of sulfur. Sulfur from methylsulfonylmethane is used in the formation of numerous protein-rich structures in the body. MSM contributes sulfur to the disulfide bonds that are essential for the proper conformation of hair, horn and connective tissue proteins, such as collagen. Even hormones and antibodies receive sulfur from MSM. Like vitamin B12, methionine, and DMG, MSM is a potential methyl donor.
MSM has also been found to be helpful as an anti-parasitic. Oregon Health Sciences University researchers have found that MSM has anti-parasitic properties against giardia. The reasearch done on MSM - Nutritional Sulfur has shown it to be helpful in setting up an environment in the gut where Giarda does not like to multiply, so MSM must become a daily supplement to keep levels low.
Methylsulfonylmethane is found in very small amounts in most vegetables, fruits and grains, but it is easily lost due to its volatile nature. The heat and water processing of commercially prepared pet foods and horse/livestock feeds destroys methylsulfonylmethane. The animal's diet is likely to contain insignificant amounts unless it consists primarily of raw, fresh grain or forage.
We use MSM for natural effective relief of inflammation and pain issues. MSM has properties similar to aspirin, without the possible aspirin/ibuprofin and similar aspirin side effects. MSM is excellent for joint or muscle pain relief. We find it best to dose it 3x/day for optimum inflammation and pain relief. I personally take MSM on a day I plan on "killing myself" (you ALL know what I'm talking about here!!) - i.e., digging post holes, pouring concrete, putting up lots of fencing and a day or two afterwards to PREVENT feeling the aches and pains I would normally feel from the overwork.
Pure MSM is also an excellent natural solution for post surgical inflammation and pain. Make sure to keep an eye on your pet or animal as pure MSM can reduce pain too well causing the animal, pet, or person to over exert, so if you notice your pet or animal exercising too much after surgery, back off on the dose or remove it altogether, so they will settle down, feel the pain, and rest like they need to.
We have a 95 lb. female canine rescue who had a fatty tumor the size of a small lime on the inside of her thigh. It pulled the skin on her thigh so tight it needed to be removed as it was affecting her health - she quit eating and she is always a voracious eater. The mobile vet removed it, putting 6" of stitches to close it. That afternoon, I dosed her with Bentonite Clay (to remove toxins from the anesthesia), Life Cell Support (again, to further remove toxins from the anesthesia), Colloidal Silver (natural antibiotic) and MSM. That same evening she was fence fighting with the other girls leaping 8' off the ground...it wasn't until the following morning, just after she had consumed her second MSM dose and was running and fence fighting again that it dawned on me she was TOO pain free! Due to my fear that she would rip her incision even further than what the vet had originally cut, I quit giving her the MSM altogether. That evening she was laying curled up, quietly and patiently healing!
NOTE: We didn't put a cone on her head, as she would have removed it "one way or another" with possible risk of hurting herself and though I advised the vet not to put in the stitches, as she was going to remove every single one of them, he of course, stitched her up. She did remove ALL of the stitches in 3 days, but Colloidal Silver sprayed on the stitches and given orally had her completely healed up in just over a week.
It is our recommendation for sudden or immediate pain issues to double the recommended MSM dose, as advised by the manufacturer, giving divided doses 3 times daily for maximum effectiveness for a week or two. Then reduce the dose from 3 times daily to only 2 times daily. If pain relief is maintained, consider backing off the dose to once a day. If at any point in lowering the dose, inflammation or pain issues return, up the dose back to the previous dosage schedule. For temporary health issues, this helps to wean off the MSM, though there are many people, animals, and pets who take MSM 365 days/year to maintain ease of mobility and maximum health benefits.
Signs of overdose are loose bowel movements, so like vitamin C, MSM can be dosed to bowel tolerance if desired.

Here are some informative books about the many health benefits and uses of MSM:
Amber Glass Bottles ~ If you have more than one pet that you are treating, you might want to consider purchasing one or more amber glass 1/2 oz., 1 oz., or 4 oz. dropper bottles, so you can split up the tincture into a smaller bottle. That way there is less chance of product contamination.
In addition, when treating more than one pet, it may be necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. This is very important when using Paxxin to treat some pups and using as a preventative for others. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe, using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.
The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.
These are terrific for storing dried herbs, tinctures, colloidal silver, etc. All are boston rounds and have black plastic phenolic lids, unless noted. The misters are fabulous and deliver a very light and delicate mist. Excellent for misting the face or for animals who are shy of sprayers. The cute little 1/2 oz. droppers are perfect for splitting 1 oz. tincture bottles into two separate bottles.
Syringes ~ these are luer slip syringes without needles that are excellent for administering measured amounts of Paxxin, CS, tinctures, etc. Reinforced tip, large finger grips, smooth draw and easy-to-read graduations. Rubber plunger with double contact for a positive seal and effortless injection. FDA approved and autoclavable.
If purchasing for use with Paxxin (aka Parvaid), syringe size needed is based on the weight of the puppy. We suggest two syringes, one for oral doses and one for enema doses (if not being given Sub Q fluids or on IV's, enemas are or may be necessary to prevent dehydration). Make sure to mark the enema syringe clearly, as you never want to accidentally use an enema syringe for an oral dose, even after it's been washed, as you can re-infect a puppy with parvo.
Puppies/kittens weighing under 3 pounds need 5 to 6 ml syringes. Animals weighing 3-10 pounds need 12 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 11-20 pounds need 20 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 21-40 pounds need 50 ml syringes. Puppies 41-50 pounds need 60 ml syringes.
