Inexpensive Braces for Dog Knee Injury
Amazon has a wide variety of dog knee braces, each sold by different companies. Visually, they don’t all appear to be of the same quality as the two companies noted above.
When shopping for ACL Dog Braces, look for the following things:
- Good stitching – Thread should be tight and not frayed.
- Ergonomically designed with a dog’s injured knee in mind. There should not be much pressure on the knee. Rather, a dog acl brace is designed to keep the knee in place without forcing it.
- Reflective tape. If your dog will be outside at all (for a walk with you, to use the bathroom, etc.) consider adding some reflective tape to the leg brace. Some products have it built in. You can buy inexpensive reflective tape called White Micro Prismatic Sheeting Reflective Tape 1″ for under $8.00.
The Choice is Yours
Customized ACL dog braces are made to fit your dog and, for that reason, it may not be possible to get a refund. Companies who offer medical-grade products are pretty confident that you’re going to be happy with your purchase. You’ll find everything from expensive to cheap, from high quality dog braces, and everything in between.
The product is made with an angled design to help prevent the brace from sliding down. In addition, their braces can be hand-washed (let dry naturally). Measurements range from XS to XL.
To Sum It Up:
Choosing the appropriate leg brace for your dog depends on what you can realistically afford, veterinarian recommendations, and how much use you will get out of the brace.
If you have multiple dogs, buying a medical grade ACL dog brace might be the best idea over the long-term. However, if your looking for inexpensive stability as an aid, you might want to check out some of the cheaper options online.
Some veterinarians might be selling a particular brace and, of course, they will want to promote that item. You don’t have to purchase that ACL knee brace. Ask the veterinarian what to look for in a good quality knee brace and start researching. Hopefully, this comparison guide has given you a start in the research process.
