Spondylosis- Your vet may advise an X ray when you take your dog and describe his/ her symptoms. Spondylosis is a wearing away of soft tissue as the dog ages.
Spinal stenosis- if your dog experiences difficulty getting up or lying down, consult your vet. Spinal stenosis is an osteoarthritis of the spine.
Spondylitis – calcium deposits may cause ‘fusion of bones’ a condition which may affect the dogs hips, back or neck.

What is a thermal back brace?
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
