Benefits of Green Lipped Mussel - A 'Superfood' for Pets

Benefits of Green Lipped Mussel - A 'Superfood' for Pets

Seafood is more than tasty… In fact, it’s great for your pet'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 Mussel benefits dogs and cats too.

Plus, they’re a great addition to any pet's diet as 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.
  • Contains a potent concentration of Omega-3s.
  • Contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and enzymes.
  • Contains a unique combination of fatty acids not found in any other marine or plant source.

With such a unique set of properties, the pet health benefits of Green Lipped Mussels are ideal for dogs and cats with the following ailments.

  • hip dysplasia
  • joint mobility problems
  • arthritis
  • ligament tears
  • pancreatitis

  • chronic inflammatory diseases
  • skin and coat enrichment
  • weak immune system
  • senior pets

Green Lipped Mussels for Joint Health & 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 gives 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 premium raw dog food and raw cat food.

Green Lipped Mussels for Healthy Coat & Skin

In addition to your pet’s joints improving, there are more Green Lipped Mussel benefits for dogs and cats. For example, the fatty acids in this superfood help promote a shiny coat and healthy skin.

Needless to say, 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.

Further, our Mussels are freeze-dried (raw) to ensure they retain full effectiveness.

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

Even if you were to travel, they’re perfect! They’re shelf-stable and require no fridge or freezer.

In case your pet craves a different texture, just add some warm water. The mussels will rehydrate to a natural texture, offering more choice for your pets.

Did you know?

  • 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.

Feeding Amounts

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

Simply put, they are the best treats ever!

And just like all our other Premium Handcrafted Freeze-Dried Treats, our Green Lipped Mussels are not mixed with any other ingredients, i.e., no fillers, no sugar, no starch, no artificial flavours, no artificial colours, no wheat, no gluten, no corn, no dairy and no yeast.

That said, we believe feeding Green Lipped Mussels has never been easier!
