Hock Braces for Dogs

Hock braces control unwanted motion and provide stability to your dog’s ankle. Your dog may benefit from a hock brace if they have an Achilles tendon injury, hyperextension of the hock, or knuckle (walk on the top of their paw).

Jointed Vs Non-Jointed

Hock braces can be fabricated with joints at the hock (the boney piece that sticks out) and/or at the paw.

Jointed braces may include a range of motion straps on the back of the brace which limits the degree of flexion at the joint. As your dog’s injury or condition improves, the straps can be lengthened to provide more movement at the joint.

For maximum control, hock braces are made without joints. The back of the brace is completely solid.

Shell Add-On

Need more support? A removable shell is added to the front of the brace for dogs with osteosarcomas or can replace weekly re-castings. The shell is breathable but completely encloses the leg for ultimate protection.

Made for your pet

Custom is Best

Our custom-made hock brace, made for your individual dog’s leg, is the most effective and most comfortable type of brace for your dog to wear. By starting with a cast of your dog’s leg, we can account for every width, length, and lump.

Off-the-shelf or standard-sized braces are typically made with thick fabric that does not provide the necessary support for this injury. Also, how would a handful of sizes fit over 200 breeds of dogs?
