The Hock Holder adjustable dog hock brace is designed to fit the natural angle of the hock, or ankle, to prevent it from hyperextending. The neoprene hock ankle brace also supports the joint medially and laterally allowing your canine friend to move easily and without strain on the joint.Read More
Our Dog Ankle Brace is Veterinarian Requested!
The Hock Holder dog hock brace was designed to support and stabilize the hock joint, which is the dog equivalent of the ankle. This ankle brace was initially requested by one of our favorite veterinarians. He had asked us to design a soft dog hock brace to support the ankle of one of his canine patients. The resulting brace has helped his patient a lot, and we couldn’t be happier to reproduce it for all dogs needing mobility support.
The hock joint is on the dog’s back or hind leg below the knee and corresponds to the ankle on a human.
Indications for Use
- Weak or painful ankle
- Limping on hind leg

For a Good Fit, Weigh Your Pup
Before you can purchase an Ortho Dog Hock Holder, you will need to weigh your dog to determine if the hock brace will fit. This will inform what size wrap to order. No further measurements are needed.
Medium: 25 – 60 pounds
Large: 60-100 pounds
How to Put on the Hock Holder
The Hock Holder ankle brace is designed to overlap around the dog’s leg for stability and can be worn during the day and taken off at night.
To fit the Hock Holder, simply wrap the neoprene brace around the hock joint on the back leg and fasten securely with the two Velcro straps. The hock joint fits into the hole in the middle of the brace.

Thank you for your amazing products! The quality is superb, fit is perfect! My dog who chews off vet wrap, even the bitter one, wears this brace without a problem! It lends stability to her leg and allows her to move up and down stairs to enter the house. Jump on and off bed- she won’t use the steps I bought! Much gratitude!

This company is amazing. Our dog had a hock injury and a quick Google search led us to Ortho Dog who made the perfect brace for her. We ordered it with expedited shipping and received it promptly for a very reasonable price! Our dog didn’t seem to mind it and it helped with her swelling. Hope they continue to keep making more products!

I'm so impressed with your company and attention to customer service. The hock holder works great and is the correct size. Thank you for trying to get ahold of me and for the personalized note in the package. Thank you again! ...Chusai(Chu) has been trained as a service dog but retired now. He is our son’s BFF. He is an older gentleman now. Can’t tell you how much the Hock Holder has helped him. We are so happy to support a great product as well as a company that cares for our fur family!
