How does the L'il Back Bracer provide support?

The L’il Back Bracer is an orthopedic support garment for dogs suffering with 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 abdomen to provide the needed support and stabilization of the spine.

How often should my dog wear the brace?

It depends on you and your dog.  Some pet parents will put the back brace on for the majority of the day while some just use our back brace for walks or times of high activity and play.  The back brace is flexible, so it 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 brace.

*Please note that our dog back brace is not meant to replace the crate rest period that is prescribed by your Veterinarian. 

Can I leave the brace on my dog all day?

We do not recommend letting your dog wear the brace all day. You may leave the brace on your dog for up to 14 hours a day. However, be sure to remove the brace when your dog is resting, this will prevent irritation and allow their body to air out. Check for any signs of irritation and/or swelling after removing the brace.

Please remove the brace before your dog goes to bed at night.

Can my dog “do their business” while wearing this back brace?

Yes, our back 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 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.

How does EM Technology work?

The EMpower device works at the cellular level by gently pulsing an electromagnetic field into your pup's soft tissue.

The energy generated from the EM improves intracellular function, which also increases the production of Nitric Oxide - a healing molecule common in all living things.

Nitric Oxide helps to increase blood flow to where your pup is hurting, further reducing pain and edema at the treatment area.

How often do I need to recharge the EMpower Device?

A fully charged EMpower device can deliver 2-3 two hour therapy sessions. We recommend that you charge your EMpower device after every other use to ensure that your l'il one will get a full 2 hour session during each use. 

Can my pup feel EM Technology?

Unlike TENS, our EM technology is subsensory, meaning you nor your pup will not feel a thing. Dogs are far more sensitive than humans, so we've designed our EM technology to not emit any vibration, tingling sensations, or noise.

The only thing your pup will feel is relief!

How long should my dog use PEMF Therapy?

We recommend to consult with your Veterinarian to determine the best treatment plan for your pup. For optimal results, we recommend completing one two-hour treatment everyday for two weeks. After the initial 2 week period, you may use the EMpower device as-needed to keep your pup comfortable.

When will I see results?

Some pups will see results right away, others may take longer than 2 weeks. You should see improvements in mood, increased levels of activity, changes in behavior and perhaps even tail wagging.

What is the clinical evidence on EM/PEMF Techology?

NASA has been using EM technology to aid astronauts in supporting bone health and prevent degeneration, following time spent in space.

Our EM technology is a lighter frequency optimized for pain management and increased circulation in soft tissue. This technology has been proven in the human medical space with clinical trials focused on osteoarthritis, post-surgical and post-injury recovery. These trials have shown improvements in scar tissue healing, mobility, pain levels, and edema.
