The purpose of our shoulder joint support

 

A shoulder joint support is employed to alleviate shoulder discomfort in the front legs and aid in its rehabilitation. The neoprene reinforcement of the shoulder joint support adapts to the shape of the dog’s leg and bears a portion of the weight that would otherwise impact tendons and ligaments. With the support, stepping, turning, and moving the sore leg becomes more secure and less painful compared to doing so without support.

 

When our shoulder joint support is needed

 

Smaller dogs tend to exhibit symptoms of shoulder instability more frequently than larger breeds. Dogs experiencing shoulder pain might display it through limping or refraining from using it altogether. This shoulder joint support is applicable for all instances of shoulder tendon and ligament pain, as well as dislocated shoulders. 

 

Usage time of our shoulder joint support

 

Introduce the support to the dog for approximately 2 months. If it stays in place well, there’s no need to remove it between walks. Walk the dog slowly, allowing it to cautiously step with the supported leg. Muscles generally begin to gradually strengthen, and pain starts to alleviate. Sometimes the dog might require pain medication in the initial stages of treatment. After a couple of months, you can start reducing the support usage and eventually discontinue it altogether. If the joint is only mildly painful, a shorter treatment period might also suffice.

 

Putting on the shoulder joint support

 

The support is easy to put on using two Velcro straps. First, put the support around the leg above the elbow. Then, loop the second Velcro strap over the neck and fasten it to the corresponding part.

Washing the shoulder joint support

 

If needed, hand wash with a mild laundry detergent or diluted dish soap. Wiping and removing fur, for instance from Velcro, is often sufficient when necessary. It’s advisable to remove the support for swimming.

 

Materials

 

The support features soft and adaptable neoprene. The Velcro straps are made of genuine Velcro material.
