Cruciate Care Dog Knee Brace

Orthodog Cruciate Care Knee Brace for dogs

The Ortho Dog Cruciate Dog Care Knee brace is a non-rigid brace designed for dogs who suffer from a torn ACL (anterior or cranial cruciate ligament, CCL), sprains or strains of the canine knee, back leg limping or fatigue, arthritis, post-operative support and stabilization or when knee immobilization is needed.

A torn ACL is the most common injury in dogs. This injury requires rest, immobilization and often surgery for repair. The Cruciate Care Knee brace acts as a CCL brace or ACL brace for dogs and offers therapeutic support and stabilization before and after surgery. It is also useful in cases when surgery is not necessary or feasible. Immobilization of the knee and leg promote reduced pain, inflammation and support during healing. In 60% of cases, a dog with a torn ACL will later injure the other knee. It is our hope that by stabilizing the injured knee as well as balancing the back and hip areas of the dog, further injury can be reduced.

Our unique and original butterfly design of the back anchor support of the dog knee brace also lends support to the lower back and hip areas to reduce strain from limping. By stabilizing and balancing the rear end of the dog, it may help prevent injury of the other knee or joints.

For a good fit, take careful measurements. We recommend taking your dog on a short, leashed walk once the brace is applied. Positive reinforcement (treats, encouragement, and praise) are essential in helping your dog adapt to wearing a brace. We gladly allow exchanges to ensure the proper fit, and welcome any questions to support you and your pup with your Ortho Dog brace!

 Sizing Information is available after you click "Buy Now" to purchase the brace. Please note that this brace is not suitable for small dogs (under 19" in height).

We designed this brace to fit the natural angle of the knee to prevent it from hyper-flexing while still allowing limited mobility. Flexible metal stays on either side of the knee aid in keeping the knee in it’s natural position and foam padding at the knee offers a more cushioned support. The brace allows your canine friend to move easily and without strain on the joint.

The Cruciate Care Knee brace is a soft brace, highly adjustable and is appropriate for dogs of all ages.
