Ask The Vet: YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength

It’s time for the next installment of our popular “Ask The Vet” series, where our fantastic in-house vet team answer some of your most pressing questions!

In this edition of Ask The Vet, we look at questions surrounding our new YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength formula – our strongest PLUS formula yet – that delivers 50% more power[1] for dogs with stiffer joints who may need extra support.

So, without further ado… 

“When should I consider switching my dog from YuMOVE PLUS to YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength? And why?”

YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength is designed for dogs with stiffer joints who may need extra support, so the right time to consider upgrading will be different for different dogs.

If your dog is currently already using YuMOVE PLUS and is starting to slow down – or if you would simply like to give them the strongest PLUS product – consider YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength. As PLUS Max Strength is 50% stronger than standard PLUS1, it works even harder to soothe stiff joints.

Older dogs might benefit from stepping up from PLUS to PLUS Max Strength at some point, but there’s no hard-and-fast age range for Max Strength.

And don’t forget that our absolute strongest range – the YuMOVE Joint Care ADVANCE 360 Range – is only available from your vet.

If your dog is starting to slow down, we always recommend an appointment with your vet. They can guide you on the best steps to take.

“How long until I see a difference after moving up to Max Strength?”

Like all our products, YuMOVE PLUS Max strength is covered by our money back guarantee: see a difference in just 6 weeks or your money back.[2]

While you might be able to notice the difference sooner, 6 weeks is the period in which you should see definite results.

“Is YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength better than YuMOVE ADVANCE 360? Should I switch from ADVANCE 360 to PLUS Max?”

Our YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 Range is still our strongest range. It is exclusive to veterinary practices, to make sure your pet gets the full support of a vet when they need it. We do not recommend swapping from YuMOVE Joint Care ADVANCE 360 for YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS Max. But why not ask your vet about YuMOVE Joint Care ADVANCE 360 Max Strength, for our most advanced formula yet?

“Are there any known side effects of YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength?”

There are no known side effects from using YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength.

Occasionally, when first starting on YuMOVE PLUS Max, mild digestive upset can occur. Like with any new dietary change, adding YuMOVE PLUS Max to a dog’s diet may cause slight gastrointestinal upset and diarrhoea in rare cases. If your dog has a sensitive tummy, you can start PLUS Max at a very low amount, and build up to the label recommendation gradually. This will give your dog’s digestive system time to adjust to the new dietary elements.

“Can I give my dog higher amounts of PLUS Max if their joints become stiffer?”

YuMOVE PLUS Max Strength is designed for dogs with stiffer joints who may need extra support. But if you’re not sure about the support that would best suit your pet, we would recommend a vet appointment. Your vet can make sure you have the best plan in place for your pet, and can recommend YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 – our strongest product range – if appropriate.

“Can I give my dog YuMOVE PLUS Max alongside medications?”

There are no known issues with using YuMOVE Joint Care alongside most joint support medications – however, if you are giving your pet any medication, you should always speak to your vet before starting any YuMOVE product.
