Brace for dogs’ knees
Dogs with limping and joint pain can benefit from this knee brace.
By improving muscle balance, the knee brace reduces pain and swelling. The dog can quickly regain a normal walking gait in the affected limb after gaining flexibility in tight muscles. A surface brace alleviates the burden on the joints, increasing their stability and preventing the injury from becoming more serious.
Both elastic and stabilizing properties are present in the brace. Dogs with damaged cruciate ligaments may use knee braces before surgery (along with prescribed treatment) to prevent muscle loss. Once the swelling has gone down, the dog can use the brace again after five days.
The brace is designed to treat cruciate ligament injuries, patella dislocations, arthritis, arthrosis, varus, and valgus of the knee joint. Both as an alternative to surgery and as a post-surgery procedure. There are two pockets on the BT JUMP, each containing two angled splints that restrict knee movement when necessary. Dogs are well secured in the brace by an abdominal band.
For conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis, the brace can also be used without splints. As a result, the compression increases blood pressure in the area, thereby raising the temperature and reducing pain.
It is secured with Velcro under the abdomen and over the back and covers the knee area. The size is determined by measuring the circumference around the highest part of the leg (at the top of the thigh and under the belly/groin), which should correspond to height.
