I purchased this following my dog's orthopedic surgery, as I was told he would now be more susceptible to arthritis. I looked into this and it does have appropriate studies attached to it. I have 3 dogs total; one who just had the surgery, the other an elderly 8 year old, and a younger dog. All of them really like the flavor and it makes a great food topper because of that. For my youngest dog, I split the 2 recommended scoops between his AM and PM meal, since he likes the taste so much and doesn't necessarily need the dosing all at once. The other 2 get their scoops at once. This is a small bottle, but the scoop is tiny so it would probably stretch for a while. Not sure about the effectiveness since I just started it, but I'm excited to see future results.
I originally bought this for my 13 year old Chihuahua who was showing signs of arthritis at his last vet visit, and then I read I could give it to my IBD cat as well since this is a fantastic source of omega-3, and studies show GLM has anti-inflammatory properties. I have been giving it to both guys a few months now, and they both have had visible improvements with their joint movement. My cat used to pee standing up often, but now he is able to squat and pee normally; so he must have had some joint pain as well. My Chihuahua is also jumping around like a pup when he’s not napping. As a bonus, both of their furs are soooo silky soft now. Highly recommend this product! The container lasts months. Just make sure to do a slow & gradual introduction, especially with cats.
I've been using this as a daily supplement for my 12-year old senior Min Pin whom I adopted three years ago. I firmly believe, as a senior myself, that helping her support her aging body is the right thing to do. I researched which brand of joint support to buy at first and found that the green-lipped mussel supplies what she needs. I keep it in stock year round.
my large dog has joint popping noises. the vet recommended glucosamine last year but it didn’t improve him too much, now I use this powder as well as glucosamine pills (alternate between the two) and his joints are so much better. it took a while to notice a difference, wasn’t until over half the container was used. I use this for my other pets as well and they love it. highly reccomend
i was hoping my cat would be more like the dogs who have reviewed this product, but she really does not enjoy this. she’s a good eater, and i wanted to get her something for her joints. i mixed this with water and her food for several weeks and she just wouldn’t eat. it is very fragrant, and i’m wondering if she doesn’t like the smell. i also had a hard time getting it to dissolve completely in water. i will give this to a friend who has dogs and edit my review if they have a good experience.
I don't know what is in this but it said it's good for cats. Both of my cats threw up twice after consuming. First time I thought maybe they weren't used to it so I tried a second time couple days later and it was bad.
We were really looking forward to giving this supplement to our German Shepherd. It has decent reviews. Unfortunately, it arrived without the seal, so we won’t be giving this to our pup..
I have a 3-1/2 year old German Shepherd that has been on this for almost 2 years. It's been a great additive to his food and he happily eats it. I will say, it does smell so if you cannot handle a fishy smell, be warned. I've used a small maintenance dose thus far as a preventative, and I can absolutely tell when he gets it VS when I forget to give it to him. I plan to keep him on this supplement for as long as I can. Great stuff!
I've been looking for a hip & joint supplement that our dogs will actually eat for a long time. Then I've decided to try a powder to be able to mix it into their food easily and found the Super Snouts one. After opening the jar I thought...nope, there's NO WAY this will work because the smell is so intense. Yep, it downright stinks like bracky ocean water. But the dogs love it and 2 of them are fussy eaters. We'll have to see about the long term effect but I'm glad to have found something that is not only easy to use but also seems to entice the pups to eat.
My cats and dogs love this product...not sure if it totally works or not yet but they love eating there food even more now
