Does anyone have any experience of these? My friend mentioned they knew someone that used them but they are a lot of money so I just wondered what people think of them – do they work?!?!

My dogs wear a mesh coat every night – one has spondylosis and the other HD and I have definitely noticed a difference in the one with HD. My top tip is to make sure they fit properly (normally want a size down from what you think) otherwise they like to spin round.
I have also had really great results with the carpal wraps – I started using them without telling the physiotherapist I go to and unprompted she commented about how good his carpals were.
Hannah has a Back on Track coat for Holly. I think she’s quite pleased with it! We have a review from one of our followers who won one, on our website.
Yes – I think they do keep warm and ease stiffness.
Both my dogs have a mesh coat and I have a set of gloves. I personally feel the benefit of wearing the gloves overnight in a finger that gets sore as an after effect of dislocation years ago.
If you put the coats on the dogs when they are already warm they stay warm. You can’t put the mesh coats on an already cold and wet dog as it keeps them cold.
