The YOOS collar utilizes essential oils. The oils are absorbed into the body when the collar comes in contact with the skin, and has a soothing action.
The essential oils added for joint health are wintergreen and rosemary oil. Bamboo and patchouli oils are also added for fragrance.
The occasional swim or bath will not impact the collar, however, if your dog is a frequent swimmer, we recommend removing the collar while the dog is in the water.
The essential oils are released by body heat, therefore the collar should fit snugly (but not too tight!) around your dog's neck. You should be able to fit two fingers between the collar and your dog's neck.
In a test with pet owners, some noticed a positive change in their dog as early as 3 days after using the collar. For full benefits, please use the collar for 30 days.
Yes, the aroma will noticeably fade after 3 days.
Yes! In fact, if your dog is taking a supplement for joint health or eating a special food, we highly recommend fitting your dog with a YOOS™ collar. Supplements and foods designed for joint health generally provide chondroprotective agents, which are building blocks for cartilage health. The YOOS™ collar helps reduce joint discomfort and works differently than chondroprotectives. Combining a YOOS™ collar with a chondroprotective agent is a great way to help maintain mobility in your dog.
