Aging gracefully is a goal we all strive for, including our beloved four-legged friends. However, just like us, dogs experience wear and tear on their joints as they get older. The good news is that nature has provided us with fantastic remedies to help combat these issues naturally. One such remedy that has gained popularity in recent years is the green-lipped mussel - a little-known gem from the depths of New Zealand's pristine waters.

In this blog post, we'll uncover the advantages of incorporating green-lipped mussels into your senior dog's diet and witness firsthand how this powerful mollusk can enhance their golden years. Green-lipped mussels, commonly found along the coast of New Zealand, have been gaining popularity as a natural supplement for older dogs. Not only are they one of nature's richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, but they also contain unique compounds known to have anti-inflammatory properties. For aging dogs with joint issues and arthritis, incorporating green-lipped mussels into their diet can greatly improve their mobility and overall quality of life.

One notable benefit is the high concentration of eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) found in these mollusks. ETA is a rare type of Omega-3 fatty acid that has shown promising results in reducing inflammation associated with various types of arthritis. This can provide much-needed relief from pain and discomfort for our furry friends as they age. Furthermore, studies have shown that the bioactive compounds found in green-lipped mussels may help protect cartilage from degradation, ultimately slowing down the progression of joint diseases.

Apart from having great potential in improving joint health, green-lipped mussels also offer a range of other health benefits for older dogs. These include boosting their immune system, promoting healthy digestion and cardiovascular function, as well as supporting brain health and cognitive function. With its numerous advantages backed by scientific research, incorporating green-lipped muscles into your senior dog's diet seems like an easy choice to enhance their overall well-being during their golden years. But you have to make sure you are actually getting high-quality green-lipped mussels in the supplement you purchase for your older German Shepherd because, like CBD oil, not all are created equal.

We prefer Antinol as our go-to source for green-lipped mussels.

What is Antinol? It's a clinically proven supplement made up of 91 different fatty acids, including green-lipped mussel, which has joint protecting and anti-inflammatory properties. And if you have an older German Shepherd of your own, then you know protecting their joints and reducing inflammation is paramount.

When taken daily, Antinol, which is safe & fast-acting, actually does more than protect joints and reduces inflammation. It also improves mobility, brightens your dog or cat's coat, and improves their cardiovascular system.

And best of all, we have not experienced one side effect from Antinol in any of our residents.

Antinol has a 60-day risk-free money-back guarantee, so if you are not satisfied for whatever reason, you can contact their customer service team to discuss a refund.

They also have a Pet Mobility boost chart app that's free and easy to use. You go to your app store on your phone or tablet and download "Antinol Pet Tracker," sign up, enter your information, and then keep track of your pet's progress. You can even login with video footage!
