Balto – Dog Hock Brace – BT HOCK has been designed for conditions which cause lesions in the region of the hock joint, with symptoms such as pain, lameness or difficulty in moving.
BT-HOCK is commonly used to support hock instability, collateral ligament, tendon rupture, osteoarthritis, tarsal arthrodesis, joint fusion.
The brace can also be used without its metal splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis. The compression it provides increases the blood pressure in the area of the hock, thus raising the temperature. This reduces the pain caused by the conditions.
Also used for protection purposes, it can contain plasters or bandages, with or without medication, in the case of surgical wounds or pressure sores. Also excellent after surgery.
A stabilizing effect and reduction of the load: this is how the BT-HOCK brace helps ensure rapid recovery, avoiding any secondary damage. The action of the brace improves the work of the ligaments, reducing the level of pain; the reduced load alleviates the injured part, helping reduce discomfort and, in some cases, the swelling. And all this without preventing the dog from making its usual movements and ensuring excellent flexion and flexibility of the muscles, while the ligaments remain contracted.
The rigid splints are designed to block the dog’s limb at the height of the hock following surgery.
- Breathable fabric.
- Excellent wearability.
- Hand washable.
- The brace can be used in pre- and in post-surgery.
- Rigid splints included into the brace.
