Dog Elbow Pads
What are the elbow pads for?
They can be used for treating hygromas, calluses, decubitus ulcers, elbow dysplasia, arthritis, swelling and limps that are the cause of pain in so many dogs.
Observe how the calluses become softer and more flexible. The protective pads reduce arthritic pain and improve mobility thanks to the heat and support generated by the neoprene.
The extrathick patch protects the articulation from impacts and hard surfaces.
- After surgery and with conservative treatments
- Hygromas and bursitis
- Instability and joint hypermobility
- Elbow osteoarthritis
- Elbow arthritis
- Elbow dysplasia
- Proprioceptive deficits
* Seek advice for amputee dogs.

How to measure your dog if you opt for a customized brace:
Select the custom option in the size drop-down
All elbow braces are custom made with the measurements you send us. Use a sewing tape or a vinyl tape measure, never a rigid carpenter tape.
It is very important to get the correct size. Bear in mind that all elbow braces are used to protect joints, not to restrict movement.
1- With the dog standing, measure from the tip of the elbow on one side to the same spot on the opposite limb, passing over the dog's back.
2- Measure the circumference of both elbows (left and right). They may be different, especially if there is swelling.
3- Measure the circumference of both limbs (left and right) a few centimeters below the tip of the elbow.
4- Measure from tip of the elbow to the floor.
*Make sure to include all measurements (1, 2, 3 and 4) in the comments section when placing the order for a custom size brace.
Important: We have standard sizes in stock, however custom made braces are made with the measurements you send us. Bear in mind that in this case the delivery takes a bit longer than usual (10 days).
