BUILDING YOUR DOG'S CARPAL BRACE

fabrication time takes 12-14 business days after receiving your cast

HINGE: TAMARACK-TETHER

Hinged braces allow for some or full range of motion at the joint. Most hinged braces are made with a tamarack/tether hinge. Some diagnoses will require an alternative hinge. In rare cases if an alternative hinge is needed, there will be an additional charge for the hinge.

SHELL

Our shell is made with a durable polypropylene. It is very important that you cast your dog's leg properly. The imprint from the cast is the blueprint that we use to make the shell. If casted properly the shell should fit your dog's leg like a glove. A not so good cast will result in a not so good fitting brace.

PAW SEGMENT

Most braces are made WITHOUT a paw segment unless the paw is affected. This is advantageous as most dogs like to feel their paw hit the ground. A paw segment will help with knuckling, when the superficial digital flexor tendon frequently overrides the injured Achilles tendon. A paw is not recommended if there is no knuckling, a bilateral diagnosis or if the dog is very active. If unsure if a paw is needed, please contact your veterinarian or contact us.

 
A dog wrist brace is commonly referred to as a carpal brace or front leg brace.

Awesome support

My doberman has a front right ankle that turns in. The brace has given her great support. No more stumbling on our walks.

Great Support Bad Timing

The support was what I ordered and built of quality materials. It would have been perfect. Unfortunately, due to a delay at the manufacturer which was beyond their control, the brace came one week too late in order to fit properly. I decided not to send it back for adjustment, which I could have done. However, due to the type of illness my dog suffered from it would have been too late yet again. Ortho Care did the best job they could have possibly done and I would definitely order again from them. Thank you Ortho Care!!

Changed my dog's life, and ours

Long story short, I screwed up as a new dog parent and my dog fell out of my Jeep. He recovered from everything except brachial plexus avulsion which made his right front paw numb and unusable. Since he could use the upper part of his leg and shoulder we decided to try a brace. Made such a huge difference to his mobility and independence. He's much happier now. It was a game changer for sure.

We love this brace. He is doing great with it. Its easy to care for the brace. He uses it almost 24/7 because of his surgery but it is allowing his bones to heal without being in a cast. Thank you.
