About My Pet's Brace
We have over 30 years of experience in the evaluation, fitting and fabrication of leg braces, other orthotic devices and prosthetics. We thoroughly understand the biomechanics of animals and properly apply them to the design of our devices which allows our patients to walk, run and play with less pain and more comfort. Our deep roots in human orthotics and prosthetics provide a strong foundation for satisfying the needs of pet patients, clients, veterinarians and animal rehab professionals.
