Carpal protector accelerates recovery from old Duc fracture

Duc is a Breton dog of 4 years and about 30 kg of weight that will have to be put on a diet.

He has instability in his right knee and complains of pain from a partial rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament.

Ana, his caregiver, noticed Duc limping slightly and took him to the vet. While making the decision whether to operate or not, they found the knee protectors online. The protector will give you stability and reduce pain.

In addition, a few months ago Duc fractured his front leg. Nothing more and nothing less than the radius and ulna near the carpal joint.

The veterinarians of the University of Bellaterra looked to immobilize the leg temporarily with a bandage of Robert Jones. Later they placed a plaster on him.

Ana noticed that after a few weeks of removing the plaster, Duc was supporting the leg that had injured something crooked, especially on cold days. To stabilize and accelerate the rehabilitation process we have placed a carpal protector. The ceramic particles of the protector reflect the infrared heat released by Duc’s body and keep the joint warm, improving blood flow and speeding up recovery.

We hope he recovers soon.

Jumbo and his brother are two dogs that have not had it easy from the beginning. Both were born blind and abandoned. They were initially welcomed by a couple, both of them, but once the couple separated the boy stayed with the dogs and soon they were back on the street.

Being blind they knew that if they stayed together they had a better chance of surviving. But one night crossing a little-traveled road, they were both run over. There were several injuries suffered and the Jumbo carps never came to be welded but given the seriousness of the run over and the state in which they were found they were lucky to remain alive.

After a while the girl (ex-partner) learned that they had been abandoned and after months of searching she found them in a shelter. It took them in again and gives them the care they need.

The recent chest scar is from an operation to remove a hook he ingested on the beach while trying to feed. Now he is much better and they have put some carpal supports with which he can correct the position of these, relieve discomfort and avoid future injuries.


“Despite being totally blind, they do not usually run into obstacles,” says their caregiver María Teresa R.. It’s amazing how well they’ve adapted and how they recognize the terrain before moving forward thanks to their tremendous sense of smell and fine-tuned ears. We were also moved to see the passion they show for their caregivers and the affection with which Jumbo conveys its gratitude.
