Hock Braces for Dogs
If your dog has an Achilles tendon injury, hyperextension of the hock or knuckle — walking on the top of their paw — they might benefit from a dog ankle brace. Also known as a tarsus or hock brace, these devices control unwanted motion and provide stability for your dog’s ankle. My Pet’s Brace™ makes the best hock braces for dogs to support Achilles tendon injuries and other issues.

Jointed Vs Non-Jointed
At My Pet’s Brace, we can fabricate our hock braces for dogs with or without joints at the hock (the boney piece that sticks out) and/or at the paw.
Jointed braces may feature range of motion straps on the back of the brace, which control how much your dog can flex the affected joints. When your dog’s injury or condition has improved, the straps can be lengthened to allow for more movement at the joint.
Non-jointed hock braces are made for maximum control and stability. The back of the brace is completely solid.
Does your pet need more support? We add a removable shell to the front of the brace for dogs with osteosarcomas. The removable shell can also replace weekly re-castings. This shell is breathable but completely encloses the leg.
Made for your pet
Custom is Best
Our custom hock brace, made for your individual dog’s leg, is the most effective and most comfortable type of brace for your dog to wear. We start with a cast of your dog’s leg, so we can account for every unique width, length and lump.
Off-the-shelf or standard-sized braces typically use thick fabric that does not provide the necessary support for ankle-related injuries. How are a few standard sizes supposed to fit over 200 breeds of dogs?
Design & Materials
At My Pet’s Brace, we design every dog ankle brace with your pet in mind. The brace goes under your dog’s paw and up the back of their leg. We make all of our products with the highest-quality materials that are also used for human braces. These braces are waterproof and built to last.
