Dog Knee brace

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.

Parfait! Mon labrador utilise l'attelle gauche et là, il a une petite faiblesse au niveau des ligaments droit et hop la genouillère, très souple et très bonne qualité!

Our dog tore his knee ligaments. Bought this brace in large but was a little bit big so ordered a medium which is perfect for his 70 lbs, slim body. We had him wear this every day except at night, for about a year. Vet couldn't believe how well he did! He hasn't needed surgery thanks to this brace! Came back today to order one for a senior goat and a hind brace for another senior dog.

My dog doesn’t have a complete ligament tear but the beginnings of one and this brace has helped her so much! She is much happier even!
