Many know how painful arthritis can be. Did you know it is also a painful joint condition for dogs too? Osteoarthritis (OA), or arthritis in dogs, is a painful joint disease affecting people, as well as dogs. It happens because as our joints age, inflammation begins. Humans can feel this and seek help if needed. Unfortunately, our dogs cannot. It’s up to us as pet parents to recognize the problem and work to help solve it. When pet parents start seeing signs of slow movement or joint stiffness in their dog, it could be arthritis taking hold on their joints. The good news is, just as arthritis is treatable in humans, it is also treatable in dogs.
Science has been searching for something powerful to help relieve arthritis pain in dogs, without the side effects of a medication. They found the powerful and healthy ingredient of Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) for dogs. While it is not new for humans, it is somewhat new for dogs. What is GLM for dogs? Read on to find out!

WHAT is GLM?
Green lipped mussel (GLM) is a very special shellfish, from the pristine waters off the coast of New Zealand. GLMs are not new and the immense health benefits associated with them have already been proven in humans. Adults already take advantage of this supplement to help relieve the signs of aging, especially when arthritis and swollen joints are an issue. Pets should have that opportunity as well.
With such a nutrient-rich environment, it’s easy to see why GLM is so healthy. Living off the coast of New Zealand in one of the most secluded, deep and pure waters of the south Pacific, they feed on phytoplankton, one of the richest sources of antioxidants. With so many natural benefits, it’s no wonder it has become a sought-after power food for humans, and now dogs.
Of course, equally important when taking advantage of these rich nutrients is no part should be wasted. Look for products which use the whole mussel, not just a component of the mussel, which others are known to do. Each part of mussel has beneficial effects. Whole mussels contain complex proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, glycosaminoglycans, chondroitin sulfate, nucleic acids and essential fatty acids.
Studies have proven GLMs are one of nature’s best sources of Eicosatetraenoic Acid (ETA), which on its own has an abundance of health benefits including being one of the most effective anti-inflammatory joint supplements. One study showed significant improvement in joint pain and joint swelling had decreased in dogs after adding it to their diet for 6 weeks.1
