Use & Care

Use:

  • You will need to help your pet with going up and down stairs while wearing the prosthetic.
  • The prosthetic should be taken off when your pet is resting.

Break in Period:

  1. Once you receive the Partial Limb Prosthetic try it on your pet and inspect the fit.
  2. Upon first inspection check the height. It should be slightly shorter than the sound leg to prevent dragging.
  3. Check the edges of the prosthesis to ensure that there is no pinching or digging into the body.
  4. Start with a short controlled walk the first day.
  5. Increase the wear time everyday after that for 30-45 minutes a day up to 2 week. During the break in period help assist your pet master the stairs and any other obstacles you may have in
    your daily routine.
  6. After the 2 week break in period you can leave the prosthetic on during the day and off at night.
  7. Inspect your pet's skin/hair after each use to ensure there is no irritation or redness and/or hair loss.

Care:

Wipe down after each use with an antibacterial wipe or warm soap water. Dirt causes irritation and friction, so the cleaner the better.

Materials:

  • Outer Shell: polypropylene, polyethylene, co-polymer
  • Inner Liner: closed-cell polyethylene foam

Casting Tips:

When casting for a prosthetic it is important that you capture the distal end of the stump. The best way to do that is to keep the cut strip above the distal end of the stump about ½ of an inch, this will help allow you to capture the distal end in full.

If you have any concerns please send pictures and videos to care@aocpet.com.

Update of an earlier review

OUR DOG HAS NEW LIFE. This company blows me away. So diligent. So caring. Such passion to help our beloved animals. And RESPONSIVE. And more than fair/generous. We started with the Endurance brace and struggled with the fit at first. When we were getting close we broke it while molding/adjusting it. (Glenn "held our hand" along the way with advice.) We received the Performance brace AT NO CHARGE and tried it out. It's simple as pie to put on. Our chocolate lab, Rocky (11 years old), has regained strength, endurance and, most of all, he has his "happy" back. OK, he's a lab. He has his "happier" back. We're so grateful to Glenn and Animal Ortho Care for helping us so patiently -- not to mention their fine products. We're definite disciples!

A new foot to stand on.

Our miniature poodle Percy was missing a front paw. We followed the video how to. It took very little time, was easy to do, and we feel it came out well. We are anxiously awaiting delivery of Percy's new prosthetic.

making a prosthetic mold

I thought the purchase and delivery was wonderful. I had forwarded the video instruction for making the mold to a local vet. When arriving for the actual molding process the vet had no idea what he was doing. I was very worried but it seems like everything went as planned and we are now waiting for a front leg for my 1 yr old Daisy Doodle Clevenger a german shep and golden retriever mix.We are looking forward to a long a ambulatory life for our girl.

Bad Tape

The kit shipped on time and arrived earlier than expected. The two rolls were “bad” we think, the tape didn’t adhere to itself and was extremely hard to get off the roll onto my dog. After a complete failure, we called to explain what happened and were immediately sent two new rolls and a new stockinette. Animal Ortho Care was so apologetic and accommodating. We used the first roll and it worked like it should, producing a perfect cast. I cannot wait to get the prosthetic for my dog, Roscoe.
