Bought for my aged Shetland who has Cushings and so is creaky in her joints. This seems to help and she’s still going at 29!

This has helped my boy massively, vet said he had arthritis and recommended bute for the rest of his life. Bute didn't help, but green lipped muscle has with none of the nasty side effects of bute.

Continue glucosamine when on green lipped mussel

Catriona Rostron

Just wondering if we should continue glucosamine as well as green lipped mussel in our horse who has a firm diagnosis or arthritis?

  • VioVet Staff

Green Lipped Mussel is a good source of Chondroitin which is a different ingredient that helps the joint separate from Glucosamine.
I recommend still continuing Glucosamine alongside this as they both work differently and will help the joint in their own way.

Chondroitin

Larissa Burnett

  • VioVet customer since 2011
  • From: Hampshire, United Kingdom

How much chondroitin would there be per 15g dose? Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Each 15g measure contains 1.5g of pure New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel extract. The rate of chondroitin sulphate in New Zealand green lipped mussel is at 2% and therefore 30mg per measure.

Tracey Regan

Is there any reason I couldn't use this on my dog

  • VioVet Staff

This product is intended for use in horses only so I cannot gaurantee it will be safe for use in your dog. I recommend using a dog friendly joint supplement instead, such as our own brand Joint Force.

Green lipped mussel

Chloe Orritt

  • VioVet customer since 2020
  • From: Lancashire, United Kingdom

Can this be given to dogs to help with weak joints in front legs. Obviously in much smaller dose?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is intended for use in horses and a dog safe dose has not been estabilished. I strongly recommend using dog friendly joint supplements, such as our own brand Joint Force. This contains Green Lipped Mussel amongst other good ingredients to support the joint.

GREEN LIPPED MUSSEL

Carrol Nichols

Can this be given to dogs?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is intended for horses so I cannot recommend that you give it to your dog. However, green lipped mussel is used in many dog joint supplements so would be unlikely to cause a problem. If you are looking for a cost effective joint supplement for your dog then you could try our own Joint Force which is specially formulated for dogs and contains green lipped mussel.

Horses that have tyed up

Nicola Hooper

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Somerset, United Kingdom

Is this product ok for horses that have tyed up

  • VioVet Staff

This product should be perfectly OK for such horses, though it is unlikely to help directly either. I would expect it to be neutral to this condition.

Suitable for laminitics

Lisa

Is this product suitable/Safe for laminitics or cushing horses with also joint issues?
Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Green-lipped mussels had a very low carbohydrate content compared with other foods given to horses and so They should not be a problem for laminitic or Cushingoid horses. I think you will be safe to use this supplement, though it is sensible to introduce any dietary change gradually for horses prone to laminitis. I would give a low dose at first and build up to teh recommended dose over about a week.
