Our 12 year old red, smooth Dachshund Franklin had back surgery in Sept. 2014 and could have benefited by a back brace to help keep his spine straight. Despite our rehab efforts his back side walks with a slight curve to the right. He still walks and chases squirrels and even runs.
Just recently (thanks to Facebook posts) we learned about something for all dachshunds AND other dogs who endure the back surgery. It's called "Lil Back Bracer." They can be found on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/LilBackBracer/.
The Lil Back Bracer is a back brace designed for Dachshunds & other small dogs suffering from IVDD or other back problems. www.lilbackbracer.com
**I read the reviews and they all rave about it, so after talking with our vet we're getting one for Franklin in hopes that it will help reduce the curvature of his spine near his rear end.
