My pup is 90 lbs. and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis recently. Her rear legs were giving out on her just walking down the driveway. I purchased these, she sniffed them, pulled a little drama queen action and decided to give them a try. She walks better with these supporting her. Koda doesn't seem to mind wearing them around the house but I do give her a rest for a few hours at a time. Just ordered an extra pair for her.
I measured. I ordered. To big. I measured. I ordered. To big. I measured one more time, I ordered. Close, but still a tad to big! So, I give up. I have officially went thru L,M,&S I came close to ordering the XS for one last go at it, but I just don’t have it in me to be disappointed again when I really need a product that will fit her legs, bc she is in post-op now from a spiral fracture, and needs extra support for a bit.
Measured 3 times for my dogs leg and ordered the small, as his measurements fell within that range. He's been in pain from a simple sprain from chasing squirrels, and the vet recommended a brace. Got these today, and they don't even fit right, even after the measuring and then following the directions on how to fit them onto the leg. I feel like this was a complete waste of money, and I am now stuck looking for another alternative for my poor little guy.
These supports give Luxie great support on her hind legs that she really needed. Luxie seems to get up easier and gives her support when walking. She's a 85 pound Pit and needed a little help with the back legs. Glad we got these for her.
I got this for 40 lb dog with torn ligament. Used this as a 36 hr on/12 hr off brace, and she went from 3 legged to running with the pack!
Surprisingly my dog took well to the braces. He wears them before we go on walks and has never mind them.
Bought this for my mastiff mix he tore his ACL I put them on him when we go for a walk. Seems to help, but the Velcro doesn't hold I have to stop and re hook them. I bought the large they fit nice but wondering if I should have bought the extra-large. Maybe the strap would be longer I don't know. But anyway, they don't bother him while walking. If you don't tighten them right, they will slip down.
My dog has unfortunately recently been diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy and is struggling with the coordination of her back legs. She’s also a very anxious pup and was not happy when I tried to put in harder braces. These were flexible enough and provided just enough support that she was able to tell she was knuckling and correct before stepping on it. It also reduced the severity of the knuckling from whole foot to the toes. We are hoping this helps her gain stability, confidence and reduces further injury to herself.
So worth the money, sturdy, pet friendly! Just what my dog needed for his rear leg issues
They do what I expected of them. We got the size small for my Siberian Husky. It offers some support after she tore her CCL.
