Made for your pet

Custom is Best

Our custom-made knee 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 do not provide the necessary support for this injury. Also, how would a handful of sizes fit over 200 breeds of dogs?

Statistical Assurance

Two Knee Braces

Studies have shown that up to 60% of dogs that tear one ACL/CCL will injure their other leg. Yikes!

According to our patient reported outcomes survey in 2020, only 18% of the dogs that received their initial knee brace from us, injured their opposite ACL/CCL.[1] Why – because dogs with braces are able to use their injured leg sooner than if they had surgery.

If your dog injures both knees, both legs can be braced. There is no complicated harness system that connects the two devices.

Other Uses

Our knee braces are NOT effective for luxating patellas. Sorry, we’re working on a solution that works.

[1] My Pet’s Brace emailed a Knee Brace Follow Up Survey in January 2020 to pet owners whose dog received a knee brace for an ACL/CCL injury between 2015-2018. Out of 687 survey responses, 123 or 17.9% of owners reported their dog sustained an ACL/CCL injury on the opposite leg after receiving a knee brace for an ACL/CCL injury on the initially injured leg.
