A Kruuse Rehab Dog Carpal Joint Protection / Leg Brace. Sold in singles that can be used on either your dog’s left or right leg / carpal area. Black in colour.
The Kruuse Rehab Dog Carpal Joint Protection is an external brace for dogs legs. It is specifically created to support the carpal leg area of your dog and to aid with lameness and improve quality of life through a surface support. The carpal brace is made from neoprene and with velcro secure tabs to tighten or loosen as required. The dog carpal protector is an orthopaedic device that is applied outside the body and compensates for the loss of function. Reduces pain and swelling by back pressure and improves the balance between muscle groups and reduces pain. Improved flexibility in tight muscles enables the dog to quickly regain the normal walking pattern. The carpal protector can be used before and after surgery, chronic arthritis ie Osteoarthritis, OCD, Ligament Injuries, Arthritis, ED and other assessments.
When dogs suffer injuries in the lower leg joints such as from the carpus joints, there are most often traumatic causes behind why they have occurred. In connection with these complex joints being injured, ligaments are often affected in some way. Either through rupture, bursting or stretching. The healing period is long and the dog needs a support around the joint so that it does not worsen the injury during the healing period. A well-adapted joint protector that repels water is important as the joint protector comes near the ground and easily becomes wet. A wet joint protector cools down the joint and impairs the healing process.
The KRUUSE Rehab Carpus Protector is manufactured of Neoprene and is waterproof. Everything on the inside of the joint protector remains dry even under extremely poor weather conditions. The carpus protector is stretched around the entire leg and fastened with a Velcro band in accordance with the stability one wants to achieve with the protection.
When fitted correctly, this Dog Carpal Brace can have a soothing effect, helping to overcome lameness and joint pain / discomfort and, in doing so, may expedite the healing process and aid longer term recovery / treatment (especially post-surgery), which could then allow the dog to quickly regain normal mobility and well being.
To apply, open the velcro and carpal brace. Place the carpal brace on your Dog’s lower leg / carpal joint area and close the velcro securley but not do not over tighten.
The Kruuse Rehab Dog Carpal Brace is available in the following sizes. To measure – measure the circumference of your dogs lower leg carpal joint in cm’s. You need to fully measure your dog. Using the breeds of dogs to fit guide is only ever an approximate as of course all breeds can vary in size.
