CaniAgil® Tabs

What are the active ingredients in CaniAgil®?


Freeze-dried green-lipped New Zealand mussels

(Supplement: 15% pure mussel powder) The green-lipped mussel Perna canaliculus contains a natural active complex of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), special omega-3 fatty acids (1), amino acids (2), trace elements (3) and natural antioxidants. In scientific studies on dogs, positive effects on arthritis symptoms were documented at a dosage of 0.45 g/10 kg body weight (Bierer & Bui, 2002). CaniAgil® Tabs correspond to 0.6 g per 10 kg of the dog’s weight when fed according to the recommended dosage. When Perna canaliculus is added to the diet, reductions in pain and stiffness can be observed. These positive effects cannot be attributed to a single, isolated substance; rather, the entire active complex in the green-lipped mussel is responsible for them.

1 (includes eicosatetraenoic acid, ETA 20: 4 ω3)
2 (includes glutamine for cartilage development)
3 (zinc, copper, manganese)


Total content of  omega-3 fatty acids: 3.3%; eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA): 1.3%; docohexaenoic acid (DHA): 1.1% The high level of additional omega-3 fatty acids effectively narrows the usual ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. This naturally reduces the inflammatory response of the body.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E (supplement: 5,000 I.U./kg) is crucial to the protection of the unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 fatty acids) and the cartilage cells from oxidation by free radicals. They form during inflammatory processes in the joint at levels significantly higher than usual. Furthermore, vitamin E  is important for the preservation and stability of the membranes, particularly in skeletal muscles. It supports the development of the muscle tissue to stabilise the joints.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C (supplement: 2,750 mg/kg) is crucial to the body’s own collagen production (synthesis). Under stressful conditions (e.g. joint pain), your dog’s body may not produce enough vitamin C. Supplementing his diet with vitamin C thus supports collagen formation and promotes joint and cartilage stability.

High-quality animal proteins

support protein metabolism, the optimal function of which is extremely important for muscle and cartilage metabolism.
