Brace Fit and Care Instructions
Process for Vets & Rehabs
Overview... Following is a brief summary of our simple process for getting an orthotic or prosthetic device designed and built by My Pet's Brace. For more detailed information click on the links below.
- Our process starts with a veterinarian's referral or order describing the type of device needed and the medical condition being corrected.
- After placing an order an appointment is made with the client and patient to take a cast or model of the pet's leg or other affected area.
- The cast is then sent to our facility in Morgantown, Pennsylvania where the brace or prosthesis is fabricated. We also offer expedited service, if desired.
- After fabrication a second appointment is scheduled with the client for the fitting and delivery of the device. Any modifications or adjustments necessary for an ideal fit are made at this time.
The My Pet's Brace practitioners will work with the veterinarian's staff and the client to schedule the appointments, provide guidance and answer any questions. Our goal is to keep the process as simple and efficient as possible.
All of our devices come with written instructions for properly fitting the brace or prosthesis and for helping the pet learn to walk with the new device. The warranty and instructions for the care, use and initial break-in period (compliance) of the device are also included.
