Among the many custom pet braces and prosthetics OrthoPets fabricates, we also provide “adaptive devices” to support your dog’s mobility. In some cases, you may notice your dog limping and knuckling at the hind limb and paw. This can sometimes indicate a neurological condition. Some causes of this could be but are not limited to: degenerative myelopathy, spinal trauma, sciatic nerve injury, etc. The Toe-Up Device assists with increasing flexion of the tarsus (hock) while also keeping the hind paw in a corrected normal standing position.
Through the appropriate application and use of an OrthoPets Toe-Up Device, coupled with rehabilitation therapy, your pet can regain lost quality of life, mobility, comfort, and function.
