Dog´s wrists are located on the front legs. Carpus, also known as the wrist joint, comprises seven small bones that are held together by ligaments. Muscles and tendons also play a role in its structure. Our wrist support is designed to prevent the overextension of the carpus and alleviate associated pain. The incorporated metal structure assists in maintaining the joint’s movement within a normal range. 

 

The life of a dog can be quite active and susceptible to accidents. Dogs might injure themselves from falls or jumping onto  hard surfaces. In the event of such accidents, the wrist can bend unnaturally and become sore, necessitating the use of a  wrist support.

 

In certain cases, a dog’s wrists can become looser as they age, leading to overextension. Factors like prolonged cortisone treatment and obesity can contribute to wrist overextension. Certain dog breeds, such as Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs are more predisposed to carpal health issues.

If it’s an accident, it’s advisable to keep the wrist brace on throughout the acute healing phase. The support eases the dog’s movement and expedites the healing process of the injury. After a couple of months, the leg is usually recovered, allowing for an increase in activity and gradual reduction in support usage.

 

If the structure of the wrist is permanently stretched, the support should be used continuously. Depending on the situation, the support can be worn only during walks and if there is pain without the support, it can be worn all day and taken off for the night. The challenge with chronically downward displaced wrist often the leg has already significantly bent down at the wrist before it is noticed. If you suspect that your dog’s wrists have started to overextend, you can contact us for an assessment of the situation.

  3. A

    Chato, 10.5 years old German Shepherd. Tried fabric wrist rests in the past, but the result was not commendable. Only the Taituki wrist rest adequately supports and is worth the price. Chato got used to his new supports immediately and the jogging continues again without any problems. Can’t but recommend. Excellent product.

    Miniature Poodle, aged 13 and over Lack of cross-link support, at first a little rebellious about the brace, but gradually movement has improved and steps better with the leg.
