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
  • Releases pressure on Contra-lateral Limb

I originally had hoped to get a ready fit brace for my beloved old labrador, With the hope that should she pass, I could donate it to the animal shelter. Unfortunately, I was only able to begin trying to get her accustomed to the custom brace before going over the rainbow bridge. I miss her greatly.

Tarsal splint with paw segment

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Animal Ortho Care for their exceptional customer service. The first time my dogs splint came it was without a paw segment ( it was suppose to have a paw segment) . It came in a Friday and I was nervous all weekend that I would be in a big battle about the paw segment. Monday morning came and I called , left a message. When I heard back the lead technician talked things over with me, said she had misunderstood the order . She remade my dogs brace immediately and shipped it next day air so that it would arrive in time for her Achilles’ tendon repair surgery. It fits great and thus far we have not needed to make any adjustments. Thank you for treating your customers so well! I am a physical therapist and canine rehabilitation therapist and I will continue to refer clients to Animal Ortho Care. The veterinary specialists that I work with have been made aware of your exceptional customer service! Thanks, Tena- Alta Dog Rehab , Utah

Perfect!

Our dog suffered from what the vets and surgeons kept calling a “disasterous” break in her ankle. She broke her femur, shattered small surrounding bones, and broke all her ligaments. They were unsure if it would be able to be repaired. Luckily the surgeon was amazing but our dog still needs to wear a brace for support. I found AOC and I’m so happy. Everything was quick and easy. The brace was perfect and exactly what our dog needed. She is now running around and playing again. It is working well for her and seems to fit perfectly. The quality is great. Customer service was incredibly helpful and responsive. Service was also quick and efficient. I would highly recommend this product and this company.

I just got the brace delivered Saturday. It’s amazing. 2 months my girl would not go up stairs to the back yard (6 steps) and I would have to leash and go out front doe to knuckling. She is a 12 yo Great Dane mix at 120lbs so I can’t carry her at all lol. Second day with this brace she forced her way out back and got Down and up the steps with caution. The more she does it the more confidence she has!!! Hoping soon she will have the confidence to upstairs to bed again
