Here is a great of example of DiO being used on an open wound. This was a single application of our GEL formula. DiOGEL was liberally applied then wrapped with a polo wrap and left for 24hrs. You can see there was a noticeable reduction in swelling as well as some healing of the wound!
This is of a customer's Horse's leg who suffers from chronic swelling. Though the cause of the swelling is unknown and many varying methods were utilized to try and help this horse nothing seemed to work. DiO was able to help reduce the inflammation in a dramatic way. These results were achieved after 2 24hr applications of DiOGEL. The swelling does occasionally return but when it does DiO is there to bring the leg back down to normal.
Here is the same leg after 2 24hr DiO GEL applications. Though there is a broad debate that this is the same leg as the previous photo we guarantee that it is.
DiO is a versatile product that allows for a reduction of heat, swelling and pain. It can be utilized as a wrap like in the images above or as a spray as seen in the thermal images below. Each application helps to quickly and effectively reduce hot muscles, pain from over exertion and swelling. Results will vary depending on use. When using the concentrate, the stronger ratio used the faster DiO will work for you. Most people utilize a 50/50 mixture for soreness treatment and 70/30 (Water/DiO) for preventative applications. Our gel version works fast and stays where you put it. Often, a single application of the gel will net discernable results in a matter of hours. Results will also vary from injury to injury and often a reduction in pain is hard to notice with an untrained eye. DiO is also 100% safe to use on open wounds.
Draws Out Heat
Above is the hip of a horse after competing at the Pinto World Show in Tulsa. The outside temperature was well over 100 degrees. You can see that the area we sprayed down with DiO cooled off Dramatically within just a few minutes. We utilized a 50/50 mixture that was kept in the grooming cart at the stalls.
Works on Legs Too...
We also utilize the soaked wraps method and wrapped the back legs. You can see that as well as firming up the legs and removing any discomfort that may have came about from the event DiO also helped cool the legs. The picture on the right is after 15min of a 50/50 solution application with polo wraps. Greater results could be achieved by utilizing ice boots.
This is another of our great results. This was achieved after a single 6hr application of our CONCENTRATE. While the CONCENTRATE is great for leg applications this was before we formulated our GEL formula which was specifically designed for spot and leg applications. Here the CONCENTRATE was mixed at 50/50, applied and wrapped. Application occured after the leg was cleaned to ensure there was no contaminates or other issues.
What Is DiO?
DiO was born out of a desire to bring into the market an all natural liniment that was as effective as its chemical laden counterparts. For years the only options for liniments were messy, smelly and chemically abrasive. Many of us have tried our horse liniments on ourselves only to breakout in hives, smell up the truck or our workplace or get that odd garlic taste in our mouths. DiO alleviates all of that. Combining over 170 natural minerals we created an odorless and colorless formula that relieves swelling and soreness efficiently and effectively as any of its chemical counterparts.
Who is DiO?
DiO was born in the horse world. One night in Tulsa during the Pinto World Championship Show a few friends were sitting around on the esplanade shooting the breeze when the conversation turned to business. Before that night was over DiO was born and the all natural answer to swelling and soreness was on its way to becoming the fastest growing brand in the horse industry. Jon Conklin & his compatriots set out to redefine how we cared for our horses that night. Now DiO is a nationally recognized and veterinarian recommended product.
What Is Next for DiO?
The future is bright and beaming with new ideas and products. We are currently working on new sizes and packaging for DiO as well as some new spins on DiO. Stay tuned in 2018 & beyond for what is to come!
