WHAT BRACE IS BEST FOR MY DOG?

How to Measure

Find the knee center

To start measuring your dog's leg you will need to find the knee center. First, bend your dog's knee. You will feel two bumps at the front of the knee, one at the top and one at the bottom. The middle of these two bumps is the knee center.

Thigh circumference

Measure the circumference midway between the knee center and the bend of the groin.

Tibia circumference

Measure the circumference midway between the knee center and bend of the hock.

LENGTH

Measure the length between the mid thigh and the mid tibia.

EMbrace Knee Support

Disappointed

I purchased this knee support for my 83lb boxer and measured him as the instructions said and neither the knee support nor the strap to the other leg to hold it up worked. I work with it for an hour hoping it would give my boxer some knee support. Being a short hair boxer it just kept slipping down an never worked nor fit. I do t know what to do from here but my boy needs something for a rear leg ligament injury. Now do I put $325 in the Performance Dog Knee Brace | CCL-ACL Stifle | Dog Rear Leg Brace? Or as the review of recent review of boxer and slipping g again - I don’t know what to do at this point but the next purchase below. I will be returning the embrace support. Please advise as I don’t want another brace to slip down and be useless. What’s the trick all you hear is fitting not good when we followed the fitting guide and slips down. Disappointed I want my boy better.

Hi Mary,
We are so sorry to hear the brace is not fitting well. I do see a Customer Care representative has reached out to you to help with fitment. Please also note that if your dog has a CCL injury, we do not recommend this type of brace. Your dog would be best suited in our Performance brace or Custom knee brace so that it would properly address the injury. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and allowing us to help you.

Works well and good design

The design of connecting the brace with a strap across the back to the leg on the other side prevents my dog from removing the brace. She seems to feel more confident when wearing the brace.

Hi Gale,
Wonderful to hear your dog is doing so well with the brace and she feels much more confident when wearing it. We hope you see great improvement as time goes. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns along the way.
