How does the bracer provide support? The L'il Back Bracer is an orthopedic support garment for dogs suffering from IVDD or other back injuries. The brace is made of a very high quality breathable and antimicrobial neoprene that is very comfortable for your dog.
There are stays? that line the back and the abdomen to provide the needed support and stabilization of the spine.
How often should my dog wear the bracer? It depends on you and your dog. Some people put the bracer on all day while some just use the bracer for walks or times of high activity and play. The bracer is flexible so it still allows the muscles to engage and work, it is not like a stiff cast. This is important so that the muscles do not become weak from wearing the bracer. *Please note that the bracer is not meant to replace the crate rest period that is prescribed by your Veterinarian
Can my dog "do their business while wearing the bracer? Yes, the brace fits in a way that leaves that area of your dog free to take care of business without the brace blocking that part of their body.
Does my dog need to have a separate harness for walks? The L'il Back Bracer has an attached "D ring so that when taking walks the brace acts as a harness. Just attach the leash to the ring and enjoy a safe supported walk.
How do I care for the brace? To clean the brace just hand wash and lay flat to dry. For removing hair, we have found that a rubber pet hair remover brush works best.
