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

Custom brace

The custom brace seems to be helping our dog with a torn acl. Surgery was not an option. The ordering and casting was fairly easy. We had to send the brace for some modifications. Our dog had been wearing the brace for a few hours daily and we are starting our walks up again.

Helped my fur baby play again!

About a month ago my yellow lab tore stopped using his back leg and refused to use it. I made him rest for about five days or so because I thought he just played too hard. He just turned 8 and he’s had other back problems. I took him to the vet where I was told he tore is CCL. I was given two options surgery or do nothing and he’ll heal with restricted activities. I felt terrible because I couldn’t afford the $3000-$5000+ surgery which would leave him confined to a kennel for six to eight weeks so he could heal. I started doing some research when I found Animal Ortho Care. I watched plenty of reviews and I figured it was worth a shot! They sent me a casting kit which I’ll admit I had to do it twice because I must not have activated the rolls correctly I completely take responsibility for a user error and the second casting wasn’t much better but it at least stayed together. I sent the cast off and prepared myself for them too call and say I did it wrong. They did call but to my surprise it was just to tell be they received the cast and it would be 10-12 days to complete. Fast forward 7 day I had a package tracking number and it was on my door step the next day! By this time my dog had figured out the three legged techniques but I was still worried about the extra strain on his back from hopping around. We tried on the brace and all the limping was gone (besides him getting used to the brace)! So far so good! It fits great and know I can call at anytime to makes this product all the better! Thank you again for giving back my dog ability to run around and taking the stress of worrying off of me!

Lizzie’s Custom Brace

Received her brace last week. We’ve been putting it on her a few hours at a time. Took her awhile to get used to it ... she hopped around on 3 legs for a minute or so but she’s slowly getting used to it. She wears it about 3 or 4 hours a day now and it really has seemed to help her mobility a lot.

Wonderful Product

I have a pit bull, and it's very difficult to find anything -- rain coats, T-shirts, braces, etc. -- to fit him. He has torn up his rear left cruciate ligments recently and been limping around ever since. I've spent hundreds of dollars trying to find something to support his leg, but nothing off the shelf could fit him. My wife found Animal Ortho Care. At first we were very reluctant cause of the price and kept on surfing for something much cheaper. We found and bought some braces but none worked so amazingly like the customized one we got from Animal Ortho Care. I could have sworn that my dog thought that his knee had miraculously healed once I put it on him. He started to walk around like the pain was no longer there.

I don't actually know the kind of material that they use for the main frame of the brace, but it looks very nice, flexible yet very strong. And the design is awesome. It's a bit pricey, but it's also the best product any dog or cat lover can give to their pets. If you really love your pet, I VERY STRONGLY recommend Animal Ortho Care. Oh, their customer service is phenomenal! Make sure you talk to Victoria.
