BUILDING YOUR DOG'S KNEE BRACE

fabrication time takes 3-5 business days after receiving your cast

HINGE: TAMARACK

Most braces are made with a tamarack hinge, which allows for full or restricted ranges of motion, depending on your dog's specific condition and needs. Some diagnoses will require an alternative, Range of Motion (ROM) hinge. There is an additional $200 charge when fabricating a custom brace that requires a ROM hinge.

SHELL

Our shell is constructed from durable polypropylene. The cast you send us forms the blueprint for the shell, so it is imperative you cast your dog's leg correctly. When cast correctly, the resulting custom brace fits the contours of your dog's leg precisely.

PAW SEGMENT

Most dog knee braces are made without a paw segment. This is especially advised when the dog is particularly active or has a bilateral (both legs) diagnosis. If the dog's paw is affected by the condition you are seeking a brace for, we recommend purchasing our custom knee & hock brace instead. If you are unsure if a paw piece is needed, please contact your veterinarian before ordering.

A dog knee brace is commonly referred to as a stifle or ccl brace.
