IT started off with horses, moved onto greyhounds and whippets – has even accommodated the odd camel and occasional cattle – and now any breed of domestic dog can enjoy the benefits of the Hidez Compression Suit.

Hidez, the progressive Australian company based in the suburbs of Sydney, will now create a Compression Suit to your specification for any breed on the wonderful canine planet.

The Hidez Compression Suit is an innovative engineered garment using revolutionary technologies to construct the suits. The scientifically-engineered fabric is cut into panels in specific ways, then the strategically placed panels are sewn together to focus on the animal’s muscle groups.

The unique seams also play a role, acting as anchor points, the seams help with muscle focus, creating the right amount of controlled graduated compression to the animal

Graduated compression means applying a greater amount of pressure at the extremities (the lowest point of the leg) and the pressure reduces off along the limbs and body. This technique used by Hidez forces these vital blood supplies out of the lower limbs - where fluids tend to pool - back into circulation, back towards the heart.

This process enhances blood flow and oxygen availability to animal’s muscles, speeds up the removal of waste products (e.g. lactic acids and carbon dioxide) for vital blood supplies. Good healthy blood supplies recover injuries faster, help prevent injuries by maintaining muscle temperature and it reduces muscle fatigue and by flushing out bad blood it reduces delayed onset muscle soreness.

Hidez uses a unique muscle focus strategy when applying pressure to an animal’s hide. Hidez wrap the muscle groups, focusing on them to help control graduated compression, but also to reduced muscle vibrations. This is very important when animals are travelling.

Muscle’s work extremely hard during traveling, they vibrate can overstretch. Muscle vibration can cause micro fibres to tear in the muscles, as a result membranes leak and the enzyme creatine kinase (CK) leaks into the blood in high concentrations causing cramping and ultimately travel sickness.

Customers who have bought the Hidez Compression Suit have been delighted with the way their animal has responded and almost all have reported significant improvement – whether it be in stress and anxiety management, post exercise recovery, dealing with soft tissue injuries, delayed onset of muscle soreness or tying-up/cramping.
