Therapeutic "Wraps" For Humans Help Animals, Too
Wraps designed to reduce arthritis pain and other ailments in humans are now being used to help dogs.
  “Back on Track” products use a fabric called Welltex that’s made from polyester fused with ceramic particles that absorb the body’s heat. The heat is reflected back as “long wave infrared heat” that reduces pain and increases blood circulation.
  Wraps to fit lame dogs are the company’s latest product.
  “We tell customers to put them on their dog for just 2 or 3 hours a day for a few days to get them used to it. Then after that they can leave them on all the time if they want.”
  Many customers put them on their dogs prior to agility competitions to loosen the dog’s muscles.
  Back on Track offers a variety of products in various sizes. Dog blankets (in 27 sizes) start at $79.
