What do you reach for when your back is sore, or your muscles are tired? A heating pad? Humans often use heat to improve blood circulation, relieve stiff muscle aches, and reduce muscle soreness.
Your dog can gain the same benefits from devices like heating pads. The Petie Tec heated therapy device for dogs is a new product that provides concentrated heat to specific areas of your pup's body.
In physical therapy, heating pads for dogs are also used for those with arthritis, joint problems, and injuries.
There's enough evidence pointing to the effectiveness of heat therapy and heating pads to treat arthritis and joint and muscle-related health issues that Harvard Health Medical School recommends using heating devices as a cheap and effective solution for these and many other related health problems.
According to Graphenea, “Graphene is a single layer (monolayer) of carbon atoms, tightly bound in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice…Graphene is the thinnest compound known to man at one atom thick, the lightest material known, the strongest compound discovered, the best conductor of heat at room temperature, and the best conductor of electricity known.”
The Petie Tec heated therapy device for dogs uses graphene heated therapy to differentiate it from traditional heating devices.
I've been trying the device with my Labrador, Saddie, for the past couple of months. Find out if she likes wearing the device, how effective it is, and whether or not it is worth the price tag.
Petie Tec Heated Therapy Device for Dogs Review
As you will see in my video review above, there are many different braces included in this package.
A back brace, a hip brace, and elbow braces are all available from Petie Tec. There are also several sizing options available for a variety of dog breeds and sizes.
You can use thanks to the braces being designed for specific areas of the body. The Petie Tec heated therapy brace for dogs treats a wide variety of issues, including:
- Joint pain caused by arthritis
- Joint pain caused by hip/elbow dysplasia
- Limping or stiffness
- Tightness in back and legs
- Pain caused by ACL tears
- Pain caused by degenerative myelopathy (DM)
- Post-surgical recovery
- Injury recovery
Graphene heating film technology produces infrared ray heat that penetrates the muscle, making this brace a more powerful and effective option than a traditional heating pad.
My favorite thing about the device, aside from its effectiveness, is that you can use it in the comfort of your own home.
That means no vet visits, no expensive vet bills for heat therapy, and your pup will be much more comfortable in his environment.
There are 3 heat levels, as you'll see in my video guide. You can change the heat from 95˚F (green) to 104˚F (blue) or 118.4˚F (red). The run times for each device are:
It takes about 90 minutes to charge the battery banks from empty. We've been using the device for about 3 months now. There is a noticeable difference in stiffness reduction in Saddie's joints.
We live in Maine, so the winters are cold. We don't spend as much time outside, and between the little exercise and cold temperatures, Saddie's stiffness is much worse in the winter than in the summer.
I was thrilled to have the Petie Tec heated therapy brace for dogs to help relieve some of her discomforts this past winter.
Each brace sells for $129. You can also buy packages to treat multiple body areas for $159-$199.
I know that the price tag won't fit into everyone's budget. However, taking the effectiveness, quality, and ease of use in mind, I would highly recommend the Petie Tec brace as an excellent value for the money.
You also have to keep in mind that this product will help save you money on expensive heat therapy sessions at the vet, prescription pain medication, and other physical therapy devices.
