What is IVDD?

Intervertebral Disk Disease, IVDD, is often seen in small breeds of dogs such as Dachshunds, Pekinese, Beagles, Corgi, Shih Tzu, Maltese, and other small breeds that tend to have longer bodies with short legs. IVDD is especially prevalent in Dachshunds; an estimated 1 in 5 dogs will suffer from this disease. IVDD is a very serious condition and results in intense pain and can even lead to paralysis.

  • Lil Back Bracer Testimonial

    "The Lil Back Bracer is a wonderful product that did wonders for my Bichon. He was in a lot of pain and would fall with every step. After a few weeks with the brace he is now a little rocket. We now use the brace on once a week for maintenance. He loves to have it on. Thank you for a wonderful product, well worth the reasonable price."

  • Lil Back Bracer Testimonial

    "This back bracer has been a blessing for my Dachshund – I can see how it straightens her body out and supports it, as well as deterrs her from running and dashing out of the doggie door. She is much more cautious while she is wearing her back bracer and my husband and I can’t thank you enough. She has had her 3rd back episode and I always have emergency medications on hand in the event it happens again. One never knows with these little guys nonetheless, the back bracer does help her a lot. Thank you again!"

But IVDD is not a death sentence—in fact, there are actually some fun approved activities you can do with your IVDD dog to make playtime more fun for both of you. Just make sure your pup is past the crate rest period before you begin, and always clear everything with your vet first. Every doggy is different, and the recovery process is different for all.
