Overview

Why We Love This

Back on Track designed this Mesh Dog Blanket with all dogs in mind: young, old, hard-working athletes, or the family pet. Every dog can benefit from the natural warmth therapy this blanket provides! Made of a breathable mesh material, the inside is lined with state-of-the-art Welltex fabric containing ceramic powder. The ceramic reflects your dogs natural body warmth and creates a soothing far infrared thermal warmth. This gentle warmth therapy increases blood circulation and may help reduce inflammation, eliminating many of your dogs aches and pains so they remain comfortable and active. This blanket is ideal for both prevention and injury recovery. The lightweight mesh dog blanket may be used during the summer, between competition events, layered under another blanket, after bathing or when rain has dampened your dogs fur.

Lacing at the front of the blanket allows for adjustability. Attached wrap-around belly strap keeps blanket in place with an opening for leash and the dogs tail. Blanket has reflectors on each side for enhanced visibility. Back on Track dog blankets should be introduced gradually. They should only be applied for a total period of 4 hours per day for the first 2-3 days. After that, it is recommended to keep them on overnight.

Imported.

Instructions
Instructions for Use:
Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using the product.

All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.

The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some people experience pain in the beginning. In horses and dogs, it manifests itself as a swelling. This is due to the increased blood circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. You should then cease using the product any more that day, and instead introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.

After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.

After the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before assessing its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more of the body’s heat radiation as you move, the effect is greatest if you wear the product when active. Back on Track also works when resting, even when you sleep.

Continue to use the product according to the routine you develop, or use it for two weeks and then take a break in the third week, this in order to avoid dependency. The sensitivity of this dependency varies from individual to individual. For maximum effect, the ceramic fabric should be in direct contact with the skin (if necessary, a thin cotton cloth inserted between).

Note: Caution is advised during simultaneous use with liniment or similar, since the effect is amplified. Use the product only as directed and consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Do not use during pregnancy.

Specific instructions for use on horses and dogs:

Keep in mind that the effect of Back and Track increases with movement when the body heat increases, so in addition to using pads and blankets in the stables, the horse can also be allowed to move around with the Back on Track products. Especially suitable in this context is Riding Boots, Leg Wraps, Saddle Pads, Exercise Sheets and Blanket/Sheets.

For long term problems, the horse may need to use Back on Track for an extended period. Use the product for two to three weeks and have a break one week, to see if the symptoms persist.

As a preventive measure, Back on Track can be used with regular breaks. Use Back on Track 1 day before and 2 days after exercise and then stop until the next workout. For warm-up, use 1-2 hours before and 2-4 hours after exercise.

For dogs, one often uses the standard Dog Blanket, which is rain repellent and breaths. However, it should be noted that for long-running problems, Back on Track should be used for several weeks, at least 8 hours per day, with regular breaks in order to achieve the desired results. This means that the dog can use the blanket day and night, indoor as well as outdoor, 24/7. If being used at night, it is probably more comfortable for the dog to wear the Mesh Blanket, which is more adaptable. Alternatively, the dog may be provided with a mattress with "memory foam" or a cover of Back on Track to the sleeping basket. The foam part molds to the body shape and relieves a sore back.

Washing:

Back on Track products can be machine washed up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do NOT tumble dry.

Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product should be ironed at a maximum temperature of 122 F The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed. The textile loses efficiency with time and extended use.

The textile is produced in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (PP) with ceramic powder or 50% polyester with ceramic powder and 50% cotton.
Sizing
Measure the length of your dog's back from the base of the neck to the base of the tail (Letter F in the diagram). Make sure to hold the tape measure parallel to the ground - do not follow the curves of the dog's back.

Reviews
Back on Track Mesh Dog Blanket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from On the fence with this one I really want to love it, and feel like I should love it for the price.... and the reviews all say how great it is, but when I received it, it's just a flimsy piece of material and I can't for the life of me, figure out what about this flimsy piece of material REALLY helps make your dog more confortable? I've been using it on my bulldog who has arthritis really bad, and I honestly can't say I can tell if it makes a difference or not. Nothing jumps out at me saying "hey, this is really working". The design is odd. The "hood" thing is really not necessary and the toggles stick out if needing to adjust smaller. I don't know. I'll keep having him wear it, and just hope, in my mind, that it's actually doing something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great and my dog loves it! I bought this blanket for my dog with disc disease in his back and he wears it when his back is bothering him. I think it really helps with the pain. He is a corgi cross so has a long back and short legs which is hard to fit and this blanket fits great and has many adjustable options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable Difference within a few days I was hesitant to try this for my older dog but I am so happy I did. We have done pretty much all we can medically to keep him comfortable at 16 years old. I know he doesn’t have much longer with us either way with his age and arthritis but this product definitely appears to be helping for now. He marches along when wearing this instead of his typical ‘old man shuffle’, is more active overall, and is much more stable/steady while moving and standing still.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t fit right I bought this for my very arthritic dog. It was the correct size but just didn’t fit quite right. It shifted around quite a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it. Bought this for my elderly Great Pyrenees and she seems much more chipper. She has lots of arthritis and seems to enjoy it. The xl fits her perfect!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Happy, My 11 yr old boy has been wearing his coat for about 3 weeks and there is a noticeable difference in his movement! He is off pain meds and even came up the stairs without encouragement one night! I know it won't fix him, but it definitely has improved his mobility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from see the results! We have had this sheet about 2 weeks and love it. There is a noticeable improvement in how our dog walks and handles himself. After introducing him to it a couple of days, he wears it all night long in his crate. Unfortunately, our dog has an allergy to plastic products. Maybe for this product it is the polyester in the sheet? Our plan for now is to use it for a week and then give it a week or 10 days off. We highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love BOT Products! Purchased the mesh blanket for my 10 year old dog. He is very active and I wanted to keep him as comfortable as possible. He loves his blanket and really relaxes with it on. I love BOT products - they work!
Date published: 2016-01-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please make something smaller than XS! I use BOT products on my horses and have had amazing results, so when I got my dog, getting this blanket was a no brainer. However, the smallest size they make is still entirely too big for my dog (a miniature dachshund). I don't know how the smallest size would fit ANY toy breed. BOT, please make a size small enough for toy breeds! My dog gets cold easily outside, and I know this would help him immensely on walks and when he has to go outside to go potty. I was really looking forward to using this blanket on him, but I have to return it. Oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! My 15 year old husky loves his Back on Track blanket! And he was the type of dog who wouldn't even let us put a bandanna on him when he was younger. Now if we leave the blanket off, he will get our attention just to put it back on him. It has helped him so much, he's more active now, it's been easier for him to get up, and he just seems to be happier since he started wearing it. I bought him the largest size (23-26"), and while it is a little long on him, its perfect since it hangs over his hips which are his trouble spot. My only regret is that I wish I had realized BOT had dog products sooner!
