Details

Commonly referred to as an Achilles, Hock or Thoracic limb brace

Conditions:

  • Primarily used post-operatively from Achilles Tendon repair instead of using an external fixation device which requires drilling into perfectly good bone
  • Two versions: with and without Paw Support Segment
    1. With Paw Segment – Recommended to be added, can always be removed but CANNOT be added later
      • Excellent at evenly distributing pressure
      • Gives more control over the leg with the issue when dog is knuckling
      • Knuckling is common because the superficial digital flexor tendon frequently overrides the injured Achilles tendon
    2. Without Paw Segment - This is advantageous as most dogs like to feel their paw hit the ground.
      • Indicated when dog is not knuckling, has a bilateral diagnosis or is very active
      • AOC will always suggest the best style of device for each pet’s diagnosis
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Carpal Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the Carpal Flexor Ligaments to get to a more functional position

Benefits:

  • 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
  • Release pressure on Contra-lateral Limb

Brace has worked well

Our dog is a Lab mix, 13 years old, about 60 lbs, with a partially torn achilles tendon on his left, rear leg. When he stands, his claws are curled under his foot like he is walking on his knuckles, so he can barely put any weight on this leg. At his age, we did not think surgery was the right option since it would have put him through a lot of pain, may not have worked and may have even left him worse off. The brace has allowed him to walk. It's very secure. We are going on walks again, like we had done for so many years, so he's "dogging" again, smelling everything, marking his territory, etc. It has been a game changer for us. I don't know what we would have done without it.

Rear hock custom brace.

The customer support was terrific. The brace was well made. The fit was good. Our dog could walk really well though we question the height of the foot part. Seems to cause some extra strain on the opposite side. Our dog is ten and has trouble sitting and standing. She could not sit with the brace on and to lay down she would throw her hip out to accommodate the brace. When we would remove the brace after the 30 min break in time, it seemed her knuckling increased for a few steps. Overall we are happy that she can walk for a longer period. The company did try to adjust the brace, but I dont think our dog has the strength to maneuver the bend. Even though not perfect, I would order the brace again just to see our dog walking, which is more important than be able to sit.

Worth it!

We are extremely pleased with the ankle brace - and so is our little guy, Toby. Toby's ankle collapsed as a result of an injury. His ankle is severely buckled - almost to the point where it scrapes on the ground. An orthopedic surgeon advised us that surgery is not a good option, unfortunately, but he recommended this brace as an alternative. The brace provides excellent support and Toby is now back to running around the park and he jumps with joy when it's time for his walks. As an ancillary benefit, it generates so much interest from other dog owners and kids in the community who see us walking Toby. Everyone is sympathetic, curious, and really impressed with it. It's clearly customized and very well-made.
