This knee brace helps dogs with limping and joint pain for an improved quality of life.
The knee brace reduces pain and swelling by improving balance among the muscle groups involved. Improved flexibility in tight muscles enables the dog to quickly regain a normal walking gait in the affected limb. The slight pressure that this surface brace exerts alleviates the burden on the joints, increasing their stability and preventing the injury from turning into a more serious condition.

The brace has both an elastic and stabilising effect. In the event of damaged cruciate ligaments, the dog may use the knee brace before the surgical procedure (along with the prescribed treatment) to prevent loss of muscle mass. Five days after surgery, the dog can use the brace again once the swelling has gone down.
Instructions for Use:
The knee brace has to be correctly pulled up on the dog’s leg until it covers the knee area. Place the fastening strap of the brace under the abdomen and over the back and fasten the Velcro on the outside. Be careful not to injure the dog when placing it, apply force to the brace while still respecting the natural position of the knee.
When choosing the size, measure the upper circumference (A) of the highest part of the leg. Wrap a measuring tape around the thigh above the knee and near the groin. In the table below find the size that corresponds to the measurement.
If in doubt between two sizes, select the smaller one.

Proven effects of the knee brace
Thanks to the special material used that increases the intra-articular knee temperature we achieve an anti-inflamatory effect reducing the pain in cases of arthrosis and ligaments injuries
Speeds up the recovery
The increase of the metabolism helps to speed up the rehabilitation process and the production of elastin, a highly elastic protein, so to improve the knee flexibility.
Avoids muscles loss
Stimulates activity decreasing the risk of muscle loss and atrophy. By reducing the pain and suffering, the dog will be more willing to move and use the articulation.
Improves balance among the muscle groups
Increases the stability preventing the injury from turning into a more serious condition
Helps dogs with limping and joint pain for an improved quality of life
