    Learn How Properly Fit the Balto Life to Your Pet

    Instead of neoprene, which is known to harbour bacteria, offer insufficient support, and wear out rapidly - all Balto® braces are crafted from high-quality, non-neoprene materials. Various sizes guarantee a snug fit. Specially designed to avoid pinching.

    Recommended for all ages unless otherwise advised by veterinarians. For essential bracing in pets younger than two, use a brace for balanced intervals of time to avoid potential growth disruptions.

    Step 4
    The length of the handles can be adjusted to suit your height. Just loosen the Velcro straps and adjust to make them longer or shorter, allowing you to walk in a natural position alongside the dog (Fig. 7).

    Step 5
    Once the brace is in place, it’s time to attach the handles. To position the handles, locate the dog’s center of gravity so that when you lift the dog, it stays level and doesn’t tilt forward or back (Fig. 8).

    Maintenance & Repair

    A clean brace not only prevents infections, irritation, and a stinky smell; but it also allows your brace to last longer. To help support the longevity of your bracing device, here are some of our tips on how to properly clean your orthopedic bracing:

    1. Remove as much hair as possible from any Velcro® frequently to prevent compaction.
    2. Use lint roller or lightly adhesive tape to remove hair from the material of the brace.
    3. By hand, use warm water and a gentle cleansing soap to remove any stains and odors.
    4. Rinse soap thoroughly from the brace
    5. Hang to dry. Once the brace is completely dry, it is ready for use!
