Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — According to a survey PetMyWiener.com sent to over 5,000 dog owners, operations and visits to the Veterinary office are at an all time high for injured dogs. And particularly, dogs with IVDD and those prone to IVDD are the most impacted. Survey results and commentary can be found here: http://www.petmywiener.com/dog-surveys-59t.aspx.
Dog safety and comfort are top priority to pet families which is why custom fitted dog harnesses are gaining popularity.
Pre-made harnesses are inadequate in providing proper dog support. Companies such as PetMyWiener.com offer small breed harnesses that are handmade to fit a dogs specific sizing requirements.
A properly fitted harness is of utmost importance because poorly fitted, pre-made harnesses are not made to fit the contour of specific dog breeds. They are made to fit a "range" of different sized dogs, and breed types.
To eliminate choking with standard collar use that can be harmful to dogs, and provide a most enjoyable walking experience with a beloved four legged friend, consider a custom made, custom fitted dog harness for any small dog breed.
In addition, many longer breed dogs can benefit from such harnesses as they reduce the possibility of IVDD, a disc disease that can be aggravated by collar use.
Intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) is a condition where the cushioning discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column either bulge or burst (herniate) into the spinal cord space. These discs then press on the nerves running through the spinal cord causing pain, nerve damage, and even paralysis.
