The Balto® Hock is utilized to treat hock discomfort, lameness, and neuromuscular issues. This canine hock brace is a great solution for canines with restricted mobility due to Achilles tendon or hock injuries. Crafted from non-neoprene material, this breathable compression wrap offers support and stabilization to the hind limbs of your canine companion while maintaining an unrestricted gait. When a dog maintains an active lifestyle and requires additional hock support, this brace is an amazing option.

BRACE APPLICATIONS

  • Sprains and strains of the hock/Achilles tendon
  • Post-surgical support
  • Structural support for soft tissue injuries to the hock joint
  • Chronic hock pain management
  • Complementary treatment option to physical therapy – can be used in combination with hydrotherapy and acupuncture
  • When applied to healthy ligaments, muscles, and joints, this brace can help to prevent further damage and offer structural support.
  • Wound management; protection of bandages from biting, licking, gravity and friction

BRACE FEATURES

  • Three angled airplane aluminum splints; two splints aid in restricting the lateral movement, and a third in the front is slightly malleable for a more custom fit.
  • The brace can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis.
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable upper and lower padding straps can be lengthened or shortened on the leg to ensure an excellent fit

Comes in sizes xx-small through x-large. To find the best size for your pet, visit the sizing chart here

Learn How to Properly Fit the Balto Hock to Your Pet

Non-neoprene braces from Balto® are constructed from inferior materials; neoprene is notorious for harboring pathogens, offering insufficient support, and deteriorating rapidly. A range of dimensions guarantees a snug fit. A no-pinch product.

Recommended for all ages, unless veterinarians advise otherwise. When applicable, apply the brace in proportionate increments of time for animals under the age of two to avoid potential growth disruptions.

Maintenance & Repair

A clean brace not only prevents infections, irritation, and a stinky smell; but it also allows your brace to last longer. To help support the longevity of your bracing device, here are some of our tips on how to properly clean your orthopedic bracing:

  1. Remove as much hair as possible from any Velcro® frequently to prevent compaction.
  2. Use lint roller or lightly adhesive tape to remove hair from the material of the brace.
  3. By hand, use warm water and a gentle cleansing soap to remove any stains and odors.
  4. Rinse soap thoroughly from the brace
  5. Hang to dry. Once the brace is completely dry, it is ready for use!
