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.


Follow these instructions to select the size:

1. Take a sewing tape, or a tape measure and a string.

2. Measure the contour of the leg at the groin level (if in doubt, check the indications in the product images).

3. Look at the size chart for the size that corresponds to the measurement taken.

4. In case of doubt between two sizes, choose the smaller one.

5. To find out if it is the right or left side, stand behind the dog and look in the same direction.

6. If your dog has a lower hip (for example German Shepherd breed) the upper strap of the knee brace could slide back and fall. To avoid this, you can purchase our Knee brace fastening belt so to make sure it will keep on place”

Es un buen producto, al tener las cintas más anchas ahora ya no roza y es más cómodo, así como más seguro el velcro para el cierre. Como mi perra es de culo bajo lo combinamos con la cinta de sujección al arnés para que no se caiga al andar, para nuestra perra es imprescindible.

La verdad que muy contentos con la compra. Le va muy bien ya que con ella puesta camina muchísimo mejor ya que tiene el ligamento cruzado roto. El primer día no caminaba casi porque se notaba extraño pero ya al segundo día mucho mejor .Me la recomendó el veterinario. Recomendada 100%

Perfecto! Mi perra se ha echo una rotura parcial de ligamentos y mi veterinario me recomendó el protector para ver si regeneraba y evitamos la cirugía, de momento parece que bien, le duele mucho menos y apoya mejor su patita... El envío fue rápidisimo , al día siguiente lo tenía en casa , asi q genial!!!
