It is important that you know whom you are working with for your Veterinary Orthotic & Prosthetic (V-OP) needs. Does the provider have experience and knowledge in the veterinary profession ensuring the V-OP solution is both appropriate and biomechanically correct for an animal patient, not a human patient?
A V-OP provider should ensure each design is biomechanically correct to achieve the results and outcomes the referring veterinarian has prescribed. The health and well being of the animal patient depends upon this!
A V-OP provider should be able to design, manufacture and dispense a custom orthosis (brace) or prosthesis (artificial limb) for animal patients.
We want the best for your pet! OrthoPets has assembled a team of experts from the fields of veterinary orthopedic surgery, veterinary sports medicine, veterinary rehabilitation, mechanical engineering, and human orthotics & prosthetics. We operate a state of the art manufacturing center increasing accuracy and quality while decreasing fabrication time frames.
When you are researching V-OP providers or if your referring veterinarian is prescribing a brace or artificial limb, ensure you are working with the best V-OP manufacturer!
What Our Clients Say
I am always blown away by the creative consideration that goes in to every device, whether it is for a “standard” problem, or something completely novel. I especially love that Martin and the rest of his team are always so willing to go the extra mile to collaborate on new solutions for oddball problems or patients who have more difficulty adapting to their devices. The quality, attention to detail, and team approach can’t be beat!
In my first visit to OrthoPets, I was astounded at their innovative solutions for dogs with partial amputations or presenting with CCL ruptures. I saw partial amputee dogs wearing prosthetics and living comfortably, and dogs with CCL ruptures, for which I had believed surgery was the only treatment, go back to their normal daily life by wearing orthotics. Their whole bodies expressed the joy of life.
I wanted animals in Japan to have this benefit too, and this was the beginning of the OrthoPets Japan project. Since our first cases, OrthoPets Japan has been hearing many owners’ testimonials which are full of heart moving joy: “A peaceful life, that once we almost lost in sorrow, was returned to us again!” “How wonderful! We had not dreamed this would come!” It’s very rewarding for our OrthoPets Japan team to hear. We are excited to provide further excellent service to our clients in Japan.

OrthoPets Veterinary Orthotics and Prosthetics provider
The top quality of their products, the professionalism, the 15 years of vast clinical experience, the on-going investment in academic research with the goal to obtain and establish objective scientific data behind the beneficial use of these devices – that’s what makes me trust in OrthoPets’ products!
I consider OrthoPets the leader in their field and highly recommend their products!
OrthoPets devices are the only ones that have been effective, consistent, and back by plenty of research. The team at OrthoPets has helped me with some of the most challenging cases. They have come through on custom making assistive devices, wheelchairs, and orthotics when no other company had solutions.
As a rehabilitation practitioner, the majority of patients that come to me have cranial cruciate (CCL) tears. For those where surgery is not an option, OrthoPets orthotics have helped me get my patients back to no limping and return to their previous lifestyle.
Yes, that’s right! I have seen many patients with full CCL tears return to hiking and playing fetch. I know it would have never been possible without the combo of an OrthoPets orthotic and rehabilitation.
It’s amazing to see how quickly my patients progress in improvements once they have their orthotic. There is a big jump from the day they receive their device to a week later when stability is finally provided, and owners are working on their prescribed exercise program.
OrthoPets has always been responsive with assisting my patients until they return to function and thereafter. When you purchase a brace through OrthoPets, they work very closely to ensure we get a correct fit, the pet is comfortable in their device, and the orthotic is doing its job. If you are considering purchasing an OrthoPets device I absolutely recommend it. You will be amazed at how much they will help your loved one!
I examined the available options in the industry and chose OrthoPets for their design and support. I have not been disappointed!
Over the last seven plus years and over 400 patients later, OrthoPets is still my first choice for veterinary orthotics and prosthetics.
They have truly bridged the gap between human and animal anatomy and locomotion!
Senior patients who’s owners prefer not to have major surgery to stabilize a stifle after a mobility limiting an ACL injury- can now opt for a custom stifle orthotic- and get back out on their walks with more mobility, less pain, and return to their normal level of senior activity.
I have also helped many patients successfully return to full activity with carpal injuries that were otherwise recommended the Carpal Arthrodesis surgery as their sole option for care.
I am learning about creative ways to help preserve as much limb function as possible using prostheses instead of full leg amputation as the only solution to trauma to distal extremities.
I love the Toe Up Slings for my neurologically weak patients- they are convenient and easy to apply for dorsiflex assistance and have improved the walking gait and strength of many of my neurologically disabled patients.”
Overall- I have learned a lot about creative assistive and corrective devices to improve overall mobility and relieve pain for my patients! So grateful for all of the support and knowledge that I get from the OrthoPets team
