Green Lipped Mussels:  The Wonders of Mussels

What are green lipped mussels? Green lipped mussels are a mussel found in New Zealand that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Some studies have shown that they have proven useful in treating osteoarthritis in pets.

Osteoarthritis is one of the biggest contributors to chronic pain in dogs. According to a study conducted at the University of Helsinki, dogs who ingested green lipped mussels experienced less pain and limitations in their movements and needed less carprofen (an NSAID) to combat their chronic pain. 

So where can I find green lipped mussels? We are so glad you asked! We have a number of products that include this incredible ingredient:

In addition to their benefits for pets with osteoarthritis, green lipped mussels also have potential advantages for overall joint health in pets. The Omega-3 fatty acids found in these mussels can help reduce inflammation in the joints, which may help prevent the development of arthritis in the first place. This makes them a fantastic addition to any pet’s diet, especially for senior pets or those with a history of joint issues.
