Details

Custom dog knee braces can be used post operatively following a ligament repair or when your pet is not a surgical candidate.

CONDITIONS:

  • Post-operative management of the leg (minus TPLO)
  • Contralateral (opposite) limb management post-operatively
    • 50% of the time the opposite leg CCL tears within a year. Dog CCL braces are used to prolong this amount of time OR prevent it from happening altogether.
  • Partial tears - average amount of time needed to wear the device (depending on tear) is 6 months to fully stabilize
  • Patellar Luxation –Secondary to use for CCL injuries, BUT are an important application
    • Cannot directly control the patella, since it is such a small bone
      • An effective method to reduce Patellar Luxation (sideways movement) is to limit ROM where the Luxation occurs
      • Luxation usually occurs in deep flexion or full extension
      • Stifle braces reduce the sideways movement, helping the patella to stay in place
  • Contracture Management - using Ultraflex joints, management of flexion OR extension contractures
  • Distal femoral or proximal tibia/fibula fractures, as an alternative to splinting
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the ligaments to get to a more functional position

BENEFITS:

  • Option for non-surgical candidates due to age, cost, other contraindications
  • Stabilizes the joint
  • Provides support to the affected area
  • Decreases healing time and decreases cost
  • Return to improved activity level and near normal joint function
  • Allows for easier wound inspection
  • Releases pressure on Contra-lateral Limb

Highly recommended, high quality!

Unfortunately, did not help my dogs leg improve. He never put weight on the leg again in spite of the aid of the brace. He could wear all day with any rubbing issues or brace sores. Zero problems.

Doesn’t fit correctly

Our brace does not fit at all. It slips right off our girl’s leg at the tightest serting

CCL/ACL Stifle Rear Leg Dog Brace

Great customer service. The first one got mixed up with someone else's or we did the cast wrong. But they immediately shipped us a new casting kit and expedited the new brace and it fit perfect. Now if I can only get Emmie to keep it on. She gets help from the other dogs to get it off. But it does help and is a great alternative to the surgery. Thank you so much. I am so glad I found you. God bless you. Laury

Great Results

We have a 12 year old dog who had a full ACL year. The vet recommended surgery which we felt was insane for a 12 year old dog. We have gone through the surgery with two younger dogs and it is a hard sirgery to recover from. With the brace, she is almost putting full pressure on her leg and is getting up and down the stairs. We know she feels better because she took a stroll in the neighborhood by herself and knocked over the trash!! The vet could not believe how well she was doing with the brace and her pain level which is low. We would fully recommend this brace.

It works but has side effects

The brace we ordered has done a lot for Winston’s mobility. His ACL is healing, and he is able to go on longer walks and play ball without worsening his injury, and for that I’m grateful. However, the brace has also caused sores, hair loss, and swelling. I’m very cautious not to leave him in it for more than an hour or so, but even short spurts of wear have problematic side effects.

Hi, Can you send us pictures with the brace on and off from the front, side and rear at eye level to care@aocpet.com so we can check the fit. Thank You
