Martin, Amy, and OrthoPets staff!, On behalf of our family and Jasmine, we would like to thank you so much for all you have done for our 7 year old German Short-haired pointer. Jasmine keeps improving daily. When she tore her ACL, we really didn’t want to do the surgery route since she had just had surgery 3 months before to remove a 5 lb tumor attached to her spleen.

Having our sweet Jasmine back to her normal active self again has truly been a blessing! Thanks for all you do for our pets!

Innovative Biomechanics & State-of-the-Art Fabrication

Features

Innovative Biomechanics of Our Dog Braces

When the canine stifle joint presents with a partial or complete rupture of the CCL (canine ACL tear), the tibia is unrestrained and cranial tibial thrust results. This cranial (forward) thrust of the tibia creates instability of the stifle/knee joint, which can lead to your dog limping. The stifle orthosis (dog knee brace) creates a biomechanical support that stabilizes the tibia by mechanically coupling the femur and tibia together through the hinges placed across the stifle joint. The hinges that couple the femur with the tibia accomplish this by joining the upper femoral shell with the Tibial shell while allowing your pet to enjoy supported motion to sit, stand, walk, and play.

Dog Knee Brace - ACL

Dog Knee Brace State-of-the-Art Fabrication

Your dog ACL knee brace is manufactured in our state of the art manufacturing center through a digitalizing process of the fiberglass impression. The impression is turned into a 3D model that is digitally sculpted to create your dogs ACL brace shape. The carved model is vacuum formed with advanced plastics to create the custom made canine cruciate brace. Once the soft medical grade foam liner, adjustable and replaceable straps and pads are added, the device is ready for delivery. The standard fabrication time to build an orthosis is 5-7 business days.

Your veterinarian may need you to order an OrthoPets Fiberglass Impression Kit to create this 3-D replication of your pet’s limb.

You can order the Fiberglass Impression Kit by calling OrthoPets prior to your appointment. The kit contains tools, materials, and documents you will need to submit your case.
