Thermal Back Brace for Dogs
This brace supports the dog's back and increases blood circulation in the lumbar and thoracic area, protecting the spine and muscles where the dog has back pain.
This thermal back brace for dogs is made with the Back on TrackTM fabric, which is the name of unique textile products that have been developed based on a synergy between ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology, supported by scientific studies. The resulting product is a fabric made up of an optimal mix of polyester/polypropylene and ceramic particles.
Ceramic particles are fused into the polyester fibres during their manufacturing. When heated, the ceramic particles radiate heat back towards the body. This reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation. It is well known that infrared light has a calming effect as the mild heat reduces inflammation, decreasing muscle tension and improving blood circulation. The tense muscles relax and the recovery process of injured muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints is speeded up.
Therefore, the brace's most important use is for injury prevention, as well as for injury relief and a faster healing process for previous injuries. It is also used to warm up muscles before exercise or physical activity, thus eliminating the risk of tears and fibrillar damage
Follow these instructions to select the size:
1. Take a sewing tape, or a tape measure and string.
2. Measure the contour of the chest (if in doubt, check the instructions in the product images).

All Back on Track products should be introduced gradually. To start, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. Once the body has had the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects, it can be used all day.
It can be used in both winter and summer as it retains the dog's own body heat. It does not increase temperature artificially and is also extremely breathable .
The product can be machine washed at 30ºC (86ºF) in a gentle program with normal detergent without bleach or fabric softener. Air dry.
