100g pouch of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels

Green-lipped mussels, whose scientific name is Perna Canaliculus, are mussel species that are common along New Zealand’s coast. The name comes from the fact that the mussels have a green edge (lip) around the shells. While New Zealand natives have known of the mollusks’ health benefits and have been using them for centuries, they have been introduced to the west only recently in the form of supplements.

How can they help my dogs health?
Most pet owners have an idea of how vital omega-3 fatty acids are to their pet’s health and especially the joints, which is why they use fish oil. While fish oil has only two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), green-lipped mussels have a third one called ETA. This is a rare form of omega-3 fatty acids which lowers the production of cyclooxygenase, an enzyme which causes inflammation. This results in less pain, less inflammation, and improved mobility for your pet and can be a fantastic aid in pets with hip dysplasia and arthritis.
