How much does your dog need?

Stick to the dosage guidelines mentioned, you may want to start with the ‘acute’ dosage if your dog’s condition is severe. Or for example, if your dog is suffering from joint stiffness and you do not see any improvement in the first 2-4 weeks of giving the supplement at a maintenance dosage, you can increase the dosage to ‘acute’. After a month or so, once your pet’s health condition improves, you can decrease the dosage to the maintenance dosages mentioned.


1-10kg give 1 capsule per day

11-25kg give 2 capsules per day

26-40kg give 3 capsules per day

40+kg give 4 capsules per day


Give dosage twice daily for 10 days then reduce to once daily or as required.

Each NZ Pure Health Pure Pets capsule contains 200mg Green Lipped Mussel extract powder (5:1) equivalent to 1000mg of fresh Green Lipped Mussel and encapsulating materials.

This product contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.

Happy dog

Our lovely girl Maisey is a 14 Beardie. Over the past 3 years she has been less mobile especially in the mornings. She was very hesitant to walk up stairs or put weight on her hind legs. I tried her on the Green Lipped Mussel tablets last year and found that she seemed more agile and happier in her movements. I then tried some powder purchased from a pet store, same result. So, back to Pure Pets tablets and what a difference. To the point that she will now occasionally jump up on to the porch at close to a metre high. She's not as fast as she used to be but now tackles bush walks with ease and tries to keep out 3 year old Huntaway/Beardie under control. What a great product, will order another bottle soon!

Tails Up !

My 5 yr. old Cocker Spaniel experienced a terrible back strain last year. He could only walk about 20 feet before sitting down and crying out in pain. The orthopedic vet said he would need pain medication for a long time. I did not like the awful side effects and went to see a holistic vet. Finally, a no harm solution. Green Lipped muscle, along with some acupuncture the first month, and he was making a huge improvement. I originally shared the human version of NZPH with him since I had already started taking it. It is a miracle. He has been on the pet version which is working just fine. It will be his lifelong supplement since it has so many good health benefits too. Great product!!!

My old cats is in much better condition and he is moving around a lot better, this definitely makes a difference. I’m so happy I bought it for him.

Love this for my 2dogs. I have used this for many years and I recommend it to all my dog friends. One of my friends dog was limping and the vet wanted to put her on metacam pain meds. I gave one of the bottles for her to try first and her dog is running. I highly recommend this
