    Hi I have a 4 year old big chihuahua which is probably about 4 to 5 kgs. He was diagnosed with arthritis in his leg when he was about 2 years old. This year in the winter and cold he is starting to feel it now. Its mostly when he has rested and goes to get up, when he cant use his leg till i massage it a wee bit. I already lost 2 7 year old chihuahuas this year, due to one having congestive heart failure for 6 months and the other tragically dying suddenly. I want to do everything I can for my wee boy, so can you tell me is this green lipped mussel good to give him and what strength and dosage. I cant bear to lose this little guy after losing two this year. Please can you help me. He is not yelping in pain or anything and can still run when taken for a walk in the park . Its mostly after resting that he cant seem to use one leg until the circulation gets going. Any information would so be greatly appreciated. thankyou

      Dear Deanna, So sorry to hear of your difficult year for your precious pets. It sounds like you do everything you can to make your wee boy comfortable. Green Lipped Mussel has anti-inflammatory compounds which may offer easing of the arthritis symptoms. Our Customer Services Manager, Dani, feeds her dog Green Lipped Mussel extract and suggests this makes getting in and out of the car much easier for her dog. She suggests to begin with a dosage of 2 capsules per day for 2 weeks to 1 month and to gauge carefully if you can cut back. She began by putting the powder in her dog’s food but now she just shakes the bottle and her dog gets excited to receive the capsules. HealthPost offers another pet specific product that contains Green Lipped Mussel as well as Glucosamine and Chondroitin – Mybeau Bone and Joint that you might like to view. I hope you find something that works for your little friend. Best wishes to you both, Toni

    Hi, I have used NZ green lipped mussels in conjunction with Glucosamine,Chondroitin, MSM powder for some years and it is working well. Just to explain, Comcare accepted my claim as well as paying for alternative medications,now they are saying there is not enough evidence to support the effect of GLM. I have supplied tons of evidence supported by two of my treating doctors,I quote: In his case I fully support use ot these products” . Can you send me some further medical evidence on the subject ,please, it may help to resolve my case.
    Thanking you in anticipation

    • Hello Ivan. I’ve spoken with a colleague here and to be honest, we’re not sure what literature we can send you that would be stronger than the tons of evidence provided by your two treating doctors. We will certainly have a look and if we can find anything that will help we will send it to you. Meanwhile you could look through the studies relating to Green Lipped Mussel extract on the Pubmed site: I’m sorry we can’t more of more help for now. Best wishes, Anya

    Do you have any idea how I can get in touch with the people who farm GLM for commercial use. Thanks a lot

    • Hi Stephen. Different brands will use different sources of GLM, so your best bet is contact the brand directly and they should be able to help you further. Alternatively, if you contact Aquaculture New Zealand, they should be able to direct you to a relevant farm – (03) 548 8944 or [email protected]. Best wishes, Anya
