The advances in technology have now made it possible to feed your pet foods that otherwise you wouldn’t be able to get so easily. While fresh mussels may not be available in your area, you can now find them dried or as meal toppers. Today we will take a look at the benefits of mussel for dogs.
Mussels have plenty of health benefits for dogs, and may be especially useful for those suffering of pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.
So what exactly are these things? Well, they are a species of bivalve mollusc which can be found in different waters all around the world.
The Benefits of Mussel for Dogs
The components they have that make them so valuable are the Omega 3 fatty acids, including EPA and DHA. These substances work by reducing the inflammation caused by various disease, especially arthritis.
You might think to yourself that Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in fish oil too. That’s correct, but what makes mussels so special is the combination of compounds that create a synergistic effect against pain and inflammation.
One of these compounds is eicosatetraenoic acid (or simply ETA) which binds to certain enzymes that are causing inflammation. Mussels also contain zinc, magnesium, glucosamine, chondroitin and various vitamins, which are helpful in joint metabolism.
And last but not least, these amazing mussels also contain glycosaminoglyans, which have joint protective and pain relief properties. Several studies have shown that mussel can be beneficial in the treatment of arthritis in pets. The secret lies in their unique combination of compounds.
