The Balto® Life provides efficient pain management for all levels of hip dysplasia and optionally acts as a mobility aid for pet owners. The canine hip dysplasia support brace is an excellent remedy for dogs experiencing restricted movement and motor impairments as a result of accident, illness, or the ageing process. This ventilated compression harness, constructed from non-neoprene fabric, offers stability and assistance to your dog's hips while maintaining a natural range of movement. The brace additionally allows for normal elimination. This hind-end brace is a superb choice for dogs requiring more hip support while still leading an active lifestyle.

BRACE APPLICATIONS

  • Alternative to the use of a towel or other household item which is known to cause abdominal injury to pets, or strain to the user supporting
  • Post-surgical mobility support
  • Complementary treatment option to physical therapy – can be used in combination with hydrotherapy and acupuncture

BRACE FEATURES

  • Two removable hip padding discs; can be placed on either side of the hips to provide added compression/ stiffness
  • The brace can also be used without additional hip padding to adjust for comfort (highly recommended to use padding for best results)
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable straps can be lengthened or shortened on the leg to ensure an excellent fit around the hind end
  • Height-adjustable handles allow a comfortable extension from the brace to the user’s hands.
  • Removeable handles for all-day use; even when immobile/resting

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

    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!
