I was introduced to WiggleLess® Dog Back Brace when Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog was a brand new blog. That was nearly 4 years ago. At the time, I was impressed with the company’s founder Lisa Luckenbach and her dedication to make life better for dogs with Intervertebral Disc Disease. Lisa turned her goal of aiding IVDD dogs into an award-winning brace and company.
WiggleLess dog back brace has remained a friend and I’ve enjoyed watching the company grow. Today WiggleLess offers a variety of products that I love for dogs with disabilities.
So, when Lisa asked if WiggleLess could host a “Double Giveaway” of their two top products, I jumped at the chance for our readers to take part. Two lucky pet parents will win a WiggleLess dog back brace or a WiggleLess comfort shirt.
The WiggleLess story
Lisa started her company to solve a problem for her two Dachshunds, June and Henry. Both dogs suffered from IVDD. Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) is a condition where the discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column bulge, rupture (herniate) or prematurely dry out.
June’s life with IVDD began when she was only two-years-old. She injured her back while playing and had to be rushed to an emergency veterinarian. There she was diagnosed with IVDD. Medications were prescribed to reduce inflammation and pain. The veterinarian also told Lisa that June needed to rest her back. He recommended that she should be confined to her crate for a month.
The mission of crate rest was nearly impossible for the high-spirited little dog and ultimately June reinjured her back.
Lisa decided to come up with a device that would prevent June from twisting her spine while allowing her to move around like a typical dog. Lisa took a brace that had been given to her by a chiropractor to a local seamstress. She modified it to fit June and the first WiggleLess dog brace was born.
Lisa used that brace to help little Henry when he was also diagnosed with IVDD.
The WiggleLess Dog Back Brace
The WiggleLess brace is made to stabilize the spinal column and restrict unwanted movement. It is made of lightweight, breathable materials that include built-in boning for a firm support and a soft inner layer for comfort. The WiggleLess brace is veterinary approved.
Countless dogs have benefitted from the brace and WiggleLess has gone out of their way to make every step of getting one for your pup as easy as possible. They even have a preferred measuring system on their website that matches your dog’s breed and build with the appropriate size brace.
The WiggleLess Comfort Shirt
WiggleLess has a new product for dogs who need a little reassurance. The Comfort Shirt is like giving your pup an all-day hug.
The pullover shirt is made of light, breathable materials that you toss in the washing machine for easy cleaning. The snug fit is designed to comfort and relax anxious dogs. It can also be worn underneath the WiggleLess brace for added softness.
