Back on Track products are designed to help reduce inflammation and swelling, and increase blood circulation. The result is decreased pain and improved mobility for your dog. Back on Track products can be used to warm up your dogs' muscles before exercise, thus reducing the risk of strains or injury. In addition to helping prevent injury, Back on Track Products can be used to decrease arthritis pain and expedite the recovery of already present injuries to the muscles, joints, ligaments, or tendons.
Back on Track Hock Wraps are constructed of a neoprene outer shell. The interior of the wrap is a state-of-the-art Welltex fabric, which contains ceramic powder. The ceramic particles are actually melted into the fabric's weave so the fabric reflects your dog's natural body heat as an infrared wave, a form of energy with a well-documented pain-relieving effect. Designed to comfortably fit a dog's hind leg and hock area, the four attached Velcro strips let you quickly fasten and remove the wraps, as well as adjust their snugness.
The Back on Track Hock Wraps are ideal for both injury prevention and injury recovery. However, for specific injuries, we recommend that you speak with your vet or therapist before starting treatment with the Hock Wraps. Not for use on pregnant dogs.
Packaging: Back on Track Hock Wraps come in a package of 2 for the price shown.
What size wrap does your dog need? Click on the Sizing tab above for instructions on how to measure your dog and choose the appropriate size.
Fitting Your Dog
Measure the circumference of your dog's leg above the point of the hock as well as below the point of the hock. It is important to note that the top and bottom straps are not infinitely adjustable. They can be tightened to fit a circumference measurement that is 1/4" to 1/2" smaller than what's listed in the table below. And if you allow a gap, the straps can be fastened more loosely to allow for a circumference measurment that is 1/4" to 1/2" larger than what's listed in the table.
The length listed in the table is the actual length of the wrap so you can determine whether or not it will fit in the correct location on your particular dog. If you have a small breed and the hock wrap is too long for your dog, Back on Track suggests using a Leg Wrap on the back leg instead of the Hock Wrap.
Please note that the small size is NOT for smallest breeds.
