The Balto® Hock is designed to alleviate hock discomfort, lameness, and neuromuscular issues. The canine hock brace is an excellent remedy for dogs experiencing restricted movement due to ailments in the hock/Achilles tendon area. This ventilated compression bandage, constructed from non-neoprene fabric, offers stability and assistance to your canine's hind limbs while maintaining their innate mobility.  The hock brace is a superb choice for dogs requiring extra assistance while sustaining an active way of life.

BRACE APPLICATIONS

  • Sprains and strains of the hock/Achilles tendon
  • Post-surgical support
  • Structural support for soft tissue injuries to the hock joint
  • Chronic hock pain management
  • Complementary treatment option to physical therapy – can be used in combination with hydrotherapy and acupuncture
  • This brace can be used on healthy joints, muscles and ligaments to prevent injury and provide structural support.
  • Wound management; protection of bandages from biting, licking, gravity and friction 

BRACE FEATURES

  • Three angled airplane aluminum splints; two splints aid in restricting the lateral movement, and a third in the front is slightly malleable for a more custom fit.
  • The brace can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis.
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable upper and lower padding straps can be lengthened or shortened on the leg to ensure an excellent fit

    Comes in sizes x-small through x-large. To find the best size for your pet, visit the sizing chart here.

    Learn How Properly Fit the Balto Hock 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.

    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!
