How to Cast

Details

BUILDING YOUR DOG'S ELBOW & CARPAL BRACE

fabrication time takes 5-7 business days after receiving your cast

HINGE: TAMARACK

Hinged braces allow for some or full range of motion at the joint. Most hinged braces are made with a tamarack 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 CARPAL ELBOW BRACE IS USED TO SUPPORT BOTH THE EBLOW & CARPAL JOINTS WHEN THEY ARE AFFECTED OR WEAKENED.
