The Balto® Life provides relief from pain caused by hip dysplasia, regardless of its severity, and offers the option of mobility help for pet owners. The canine hip dysplasia support brace is an excellent remedy for dogs experiencing restricted movement and motor challenges as a result of accident, illness, or the aging process. This ventilated compression harness, constructed from a non-neoprene fabric, offers stability and assistance to your canine's hips while maintaining their innate mobility. The brace also facilitates regular elimination. This posterior brace is a superb choice for dogs requiring supplementary hip support while sustaining an active lifestyle.

BRACE APPLICATIONS

  • Alternative to the use of a towel or other household item which is known to cause abdominal injury to pets, or strain to the user supporting
  • Post-surgical mobility support
  • Complementary treatment option to physical therapy – can be used in combination with hydrotherapy and acupuncture

BRACE FEATURES

  • Two removable hip padding discs; can be placed on either side of the hips to provide added compression/ stiffness
  • The brace can also be used without additional hip padding to adjust for comfort (highly recommended to use padding for best results)
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable straps can be lengthened or shortened on the leg to ensure an excellent fit around the hind end
  • Height-adjustable handles allow a comfortable extension from the brace to the user’s hands.
  • Removeable handles for all-day use; even when immobile/resting

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

Learn How to Properly Fit the Balto Life 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.

  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!
