sulfur dioxide
a poisonous gas liberated by some industrial enterprises, e.g. copper smelting, from silage to which sodium metabisulfite has been added as a preservative and in oldfashioned treatments for mange. The gas causes irritation of the upper respiratory tract and pneumonia in severe cases. Commonly used as a meat preservative where it selectively destroys thiamin and has been incriminated as a cause of thiamin deficiency, particularly in dogs and cats.

sulfur nutritional deficiency
ruminants may need supplemental inorganic sulfur if the bulk of their nitrogen is not in the form of protein but as urea or ammonium phosphate. A deficiency in these circumstances causes anorexia, weight loss, poor digestion and fall in milk yield.
precipitated sulfur
a scabicide, antiparasitic, antifungal and keratolytic. Called also milk of sulfur.
