The dog’s knee joint is a slightly hooked strong joint supported by ligaments. Knee support prevents soreness and swelling of the knee joint. The support facilitates the movement of the joint, thus strengthening the muscles of the foot. The knee brace, due to its precise design and shape, fits well in the dog’s foot.
The most common knee injury for a dog is an anterior cruciate ligament rupture. The ailment usually begins with an occasional slight limp, which suddenly worsens when the anterior cruciate ligament ruptures in sudden motion. The ailment can also start as a sudden strong limp and the dog will avoid putting weight on a sore leg. Sitting in a normal position can also be difficult. Especially in smaller dogs, there is dislocation of the kneecap (patella luxation). The symptom appears as a leaping step in the dog, especially in the trot. In these cases, we recommend the use of a knee brace. The supported leg is less painful and allows movement.
Many times when the dog’s cruciate ligament is torn, the leg has to be operated. The support to be used before and after the operation. The support makes it easier for the dog to recover.
Use support on the dog until the leg has healed so well that the dog moves without support in a strong-looking manner. The period of use is about 2-3 months for injuries and post-operative care. If necessary, the support can be used for the whole dog’s lifetime. If necessary, you can also consult a veterinarian for the use of the support.
The fabric used in the support is durable, padded and flexible. A genuine Velcro tape is used for the velcro attachment of the support.
