CRUCIATE CARE KNEE BRACE
The Ortho Dog Cruciate Care Knee brace is a non-rigid brace designed for dogs who suffer from a torn ACL (anterior or cranial cruciate ligament), sprains or strains of the canine knee, back leg limping or fatigue, arthritis, post-operative support and stabilization or when knee immobilization is needed.

A torn ACL is the most common injury in dogs. This injury requires rest, immobilization and often surgery for repair. The Cruciate Care Knee brace offers therapeutic support and stabilization before and after surgery. It is also useful in cases when surgery is not necessary or feasible. Immobilization of the knee and leg promote reduced pain, inflammation and support during healing. In 60% of cases, a dog with a torn ACL will later injure the other knee. It is our hope that by stabilizing the injured knee as well as balancing the back and hip areas of the dog, further injury can be reduced.

Our unique and original butterfly design of the back anchor support of the knee brace also lends support to the lower back and hip areas to reduce strain from limping. By stabilizing and balancing the rear end of the dog, it may help prevent injury of the other knee or joints.

The harness is color coded by size:

  • Large – Black
  • Medium – Red

We designed this brace to fit the natural angle of the knee to prevent it from hyper-flexing while still allowing limited mobility. Flexible metal stays on either side of the knee aid in keeping the knee in it’s natural position and foam padding at the knee offers a more cushioned support. The brace allows your canine friend to move easily and without strain on the joint.

The Cruciate Care Knee brace is a soft brace, highly adjustable and is appropriate for dogs of all ages.

ORTHO DOG WRIST WRAP
The Ortho Dog Wrist Wrap was the original inspiration for the Ortho Dog products.

The Wrist Wrap has greatly improved the quality of life for our dogs, Spirit and Zoie. Both suffer from weak wrists on their front legs and would limp after a hike or a long walk. Elizabeth designed this simple brace and now they can hike long distances without pain or limping.

Your dog's front legs are much like your own arms. Directly above each paw is the wrist joint. The Wrist Wrap, fitted securely, stabilizes your dog's forearm bones and lends support to the muscles and tendons of the wrist and leg.

To apply the Wrist Wrap, simply wrap the neoprene brace around the front leg about 1 inch above where the wrist bends and fasten securely with Velcro. Be sure that the brace does not interfere with the flexion of the paw. Your dog will soon let you know the proper tension for support.

The Wrist Wrap is available in medium and large sizes.

Hike on!

The Wrist Wrap Measures:
Medium - 5 1/2" around the leg x 1 3/4" up and down the leg.
Large- 7" around the leg x 2 1/2" up and down the leg
The Wrist Wrap brace is designed to overlap around the dog's leg for stability.

The brace can be worn during the day and taken off at night.

ORTHO DOG HOCK HOLDER
The Hock Holder was requested by one of our favorite veterinarians. He asked us to design a brace to support the ankle of one of his canine patients. Our brace has helped his patient a lot and we appreciate his request.

The hock joint is on the dog's back leg below the knee and corresponds to the ankle on a human. We designed this brace to fit the natural angle of the hock to prevent it from hyper extending. The neoprene wrap also supports the joint medially and laterally allowing your canine friend to move easily and without strain on the joint.

The Hock Holder Measures:
Medium - 6" around the leg x 3" up and down the leg
Large - 8" around the leg x 5" up and down the leg
The Hock Holder brace is designed to overlap around the dog's leg for stability.

The brace can be worn during the day and taken off at night.

The Ortho Dog braces are not intended to diagnose, prevent or cure any disease or condition.
We recommend consulting with your veterinarian regarding any concerns you have about
your dog's health.
