One of the most common ailments amongst cats and dogs is inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatism. These conditions can only be treated, rather than cured, but food supplements can also help manage the pain and improve their suppleness. Medicines tend to have various negative side effects such as irritation, anorexia, vomiting and ulcers which is why pet owners look to natural food supplements as an alternative.
Mussel powder is naturally antiinflammatory due to the high content of glucosamine and chondroitin that are critical building blocks for bones and cartilage. They are key in reducing and inhibiting inflammation, and relieving pain associated with joint problems. Mussel powder is also a rich source of omega fatty acids and minerals not found in any other marine of plant life and there are no negative side effects.
