Use & Care

Use and Care

Wipe surfaces with warm soapy water, rinse, air dry.

Break-In Period

Similar to breaking in a new pair of shoes, the Supports should be worn in short, increasing increments in order to build up a tolerance. Both the length of the break-in period and the time of each increment will depend on your pet’s diagnosis and skin sensitivity.  For best results, wear for a HALF Hour On and Off the first day and increase by half hour per day. If there is any irritation or skin break-down, discontinue use for ONE full day.  A short period of time may be required before your pet accepts the brace.  If necessary, to facilitate your pet’s acceptance of the brace, associate with positive reinforcement, such as a treat.

Skin & Brace Examination

It is of extreme importance that your pet’s skin is inspected thoroughly after every usage. This is especially important during the “break-in period.” The occurrence of skin redness the does not disappear within 20 minutes or evidence of skin breakdown is a sign of excessive pressure. Any unusual marks on the skin, blisters, or excessive wearing of the device should also be noted. If any of the previously stated conditions present, discontinue usage and contact Animal Ortho Care.   It is also important to inspect the brace regularly for any cracks or tears.

Proper Hygiene

It is important to keep the both the skin in contact with the brace as well as the brace itself be kept clean.  This will reduce the chance of your pet contracting contact dermatitis or other skin conditions. Your pet’s brace should be cleaned regularly, as stated above.  Let the brace dry at room temperature.
