Do Dog Knee Braces Work For Dogs?
Yes, our dog knee brace is custom designed to fit every animal uniquely. A dog knee brace also known as a stifle brace is built to stabilize the knee and prevent the drawer motion which causes knee injuries in dogs. When the knee is stabilized and the drawer motion is minimized the ligament is allowed to heal over time.
Do Braces Help ACL Tears in Dogs?
