Green Lipped Mussels - A 'Superfood' for Pets

Green Lipped Mussels - A 'Superfood' for Pets

Seafood is more than tasty… It is also great for your dog and cat's health, both body and mind.

Known for their natural ability to help both humans and animals manage arthritis and joint-related pain, our Green Lipped Mussels are a great addition to any pet's diet.

Their nutritional properties are hard to beat.

  • Rich in glucosamine and chondroitin that act as both a preventative and fast-acting anti-inflammatory for joint-related issues.
  • Contain a potent concentration of Omega-3s.
  • Contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and enzymes.
  • Contain a unique combination of fatty acids not found in any other marine or plant source.

  • Green Lipped Mussels have a green hue around the edge of their shell (aka the “lip”).
  • They are the largest mussel and can only be found near New Zealand.
  • They have been used in New Zealand for years because of the health benefits they offer. Their appearance in western diets of both humans and dogs is much more recent and is gaining popularity. Read the reasons below.

Green Lipped Mussels for Joint Health and Arthritis

The Omega-3s and other fatty acids commonly found in Mussels are the main reason that these shellfish offer many health benefits.

The high concentration of Omega fatty acids give Mussels pain-reducing properties and the glucosamine and chondroitin found in this shellfish help reduce inflammation.

Feeding Mussels can also be used as a preventative for joint problems later in life.

The nutritional properties of our Mussels pair nicely with glucosamine sources and fish oils found in our Meals for Dogs and Meals for Cats.

Green Lipped Mussels for Healthy Coat and Skin

In addition to your pet’s joints improving these fatty acids help promote a shiny coat and healthy skin. A healthy skin and coat will keep your pet feeling soft while also reducing any irritations or itching.

Mussels are also considered to be a superfood because they contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and enzymes on top of the Omega-3s.

Our Premium Handcrafted Freeze-Dried Green Lipped Mussels

Furchild offers 100% single-source whole Green Lipped Mussels sustainably farmed from the pure and pristine waters of New Zealand.

Our Mussels are freeze-dried (raw) to ensure they retain full effectiveness.

Our freeze-drying process creates a light, crisp texture that appeals to both dogs and cats, and more importantly, it preserves the fresh flavour, aroma, and nutritional value of fresh foods.

They are shelf-stable and are perfect for traveling as they require no fridge and no freezer.

If your pet craves a different texture, just add warm water. Mussels will re-hydrate to a natural texture.

Feeding Amounts

  • We suggest feeding approximately 1 Mussel per 9 kg (20 lb) per day, up to 3 Mussels per day.

All of our Premium Handcrafted Freeze-Dried Treats are not mixed with other ingredients: no fillers, no sugar, no starch, no artificial flavours, no artificial colours, no wheat, no gluten, no corn, no dairy and no yeast.

Simply put, they are the best treats ever!

Feeding Green Lipped Mussels has never been easier!
