Carpus (Wrist) and Paw Dog Braces

An OrthoPets Carpal Orthosis (dog wrist brace) can be a great solution to provide comfort and support for your pet’s injury or instability. There are many orthopedic conditions of the carpus (wrist) joint that may affect your pet’s mobility. OrthoPets custom fabricates each animal’s brace for their individual needs.

One of the most common conditions presented to OrthoPets is carpal hyperextension. Our dog braces can be used pre-op, post-op, or in lieu of surgery. These solutions can be used for leg support following traumatic injury or chronic conditions. While the carpus joint may not be affected, a carpal orthosis (wrist brace) may be appropriate to provide support to an injured or deformed paw. OrthoPets even fabricates custom paw insoles! The device design will be determined by your veterinarian’s prescribed therapeutic goals for your pet.

Through the appropriate application and use of an OrthoPets Carpus Orthosis (dog wrist brace), coupled with rehabilitation therapy, your pet can regain lost quality of life, mobility, comfort, and function.

Please feel free to contact us via phone or email with any questions you may have.
