BT Cruciate Knee Brace

The Cruciate Knee brace for dogs is designed to support dogs with cruciate ligament injury, luxation of the patella, knee joint conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis and angular limb deformities. The cruciate brace can be used both as an alternative to surgery, and in post-surgery. The brace has two pockets which contain removable angled splints that restrict the movement of the knee when necessary. 

The cruciate brace can be used both as an alternative to surgery, and in post-surgery (TTO, TTA, TPLO ).

The cruciate brace has two pockets, which contain two angled splints that restrict the movement of the knee where necessary. An abdominal band ensures the brace is secured at the right height on the leg. An additional "harness Link” is provided and can be used in conjunction with a chest  harness in order to prevent the abdominal belt from sliding.

The brace can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis. This is because the compression it provides increases the blood pressure in the area, thus raising the temperature and reducing the pain caused by the conditions.

A double version of the brace is also available for dogs with injury to both legs, or to prevent injury to the good leg.

HOW LONG TO USE THE BRACE?

 Statistics when using the Balto Knee Brace:

The scar tissue that will stabilise the stifle needs 1 to 3 months to build up in order for the dog to walk without a brace. During this first period we advise you use the brace every time the dog is active. Remove it at night or when the dog is resting.

After this initial period the scar tissue needs another 6 months to consolidate and be strong enough to bear the full weight of an active (running, jumping, turning) pet without the brace. During this second phase, you can use the brace only during times of increased activity (e.g. in a dog park or on long walks)

  • It is very common for a dog to develop a cruciate injury on the second leg after the first one. The double knee brace has been designed to lower this risk especially with overweight and older dogs.
  • Keep in mind that the brace provides a support externally so it is still possible for the dog to chew and scratch and you can remove it when you leave the dog alone.

Recommendations for use
  • During the period of restraint, it is advisable not to leave the dog alone for too long, because it might try to remove the brace by biting or scratching it
  • Be careful of the band when applying the brace to a male dog. When wrapping the band around the pelvis, pass the band in front of foreskin in order to avoid compressing the urethra.

Walkin' Wheels Dog Wheelchair
View Walkin' Wheels Dog Wheelchair

The Walkin' Wheels wheelchair is suitable for dogs with hind leg weakness that tire easily when walking, or for dogs that have lost the use of their hind legs completely. These chairs are so flexible, as you have the option of having your dogs paws up or down depending on the severity of your dogs condition.

Your dog will use its front legs to move, explore and play, while its back legs are lightly touching the ground, or if preferred safely held up in stirrups. We also offer the front wheels option to create a Quad 4-wheel Fully Supportive wheelchair which is designed for dogs who have weakness in their front legs as well in their rear legs.

The Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair is the perfect solution for dogs with more serious mobility issues, as it will give your dog the exercise it needs to live a happy active life. 

Select your dogs wheelchair size by using the dropdown box below, then fill in your dogs breed, weight and flank measurements below so we can size up the wheel kit. On the drop down menu F.O.F is the fold of flank for selecting the wheelchair size.

The standard tyres are foam, but if you would prefer more rugged off road tyres please select the pneumatic tyre option from the drop down menu below.

The optional belly support is good for dogs with long backs or spinal/ back issues as it stabilises the dogs position in the wheelchair. Its also good for large boisterous dogs that may need the extra stability.

The optional WW rear lift harness can be used with the wheelchair instead of the leg rings, and also out of the wheelchair as a walking and lifting aid. 

The optional Walker Active Boots are indoor & Outdoor boots designed to protect your dogs paws and claws from scrapes and injuries.

If your dog is very immobile on the rear legs, you may want a WW Lift from or WW lift Rear Harness. These harnesses support your dog’s front or hind/ or both combined while walking, and can also be used instead of the Leg Rings in the Walkin Wheels wheelchair. This saves time and upset with constantly changing harnesses.
