Methionine

What is Methionine?

Methionine is an essential amino acid for dogs, cats, and horses, and it plays a vital role in protein synthesis, gene expression, and overall health. It's crucial for various physiological functions, including the formation of other important compounds like taurine and cysteine.

Why we would use it for pet products?

Methionine is used in pet products and supplements to ensure that dogs, cats, and horses receive an adequate supply of this essential amino acid. This is especially important for pets on plant-based diets, where methionine may be limited, and for those with specific health concerns where additional methionine supplementation is beneficial.

Where can Methionine be found in nature?

Methionine is naturally found in various food sources, both plant-based and animal-based. Foods rich in methionine include poultry, fish, meat, dairy products, eggs, and some plant foods like soybeans, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds.

Did You Know?

Methionine is vital for pets due to its role in supporting coat and skin health. This amino acid is a precursor for cysteine, which plays a key role in the formation of keratin, a protein that's a major component of skin, hair, and nails. So, methionine contributes to your pet's beautiful coat and healthy skin.
