Some dogs have anatomically dropped hips, which can cause the upper strap of the knee brace to slide backwards. To prevent this from happening, we developed a Connection Belt which we recommend to buy with your Knee Brace. Production Time: 1-2 Business Days
Improve your dogs quality of life tremendously with a Tailwind Hinged Knee Brace for Dogs. #vetapproved
If your dog experiences pain when walking or has joint issues, our hinged knee brace will relieve stress and support your dogs knee. It immobilizes the lateral displacement of the knee and compensates loss of joint functionality.
Useful for reducing pain in cases of osteoarthritis, cruciate ligament injury, meniscus injury, kneecap problems and tendinitis.
Why your dog should wear a Tailwind Knee Brace:
It helps with limping and general joint pain and can make your dog's life easier.
By using the brace, swelling and pain can be reduced because of the distribution of balance between the different muscle groups. Since the muscles will untighten, your dogs knee flexibility will improve. Furthermore stability can be increased because of the pressure the brace applies.
This brace can improve your dog's mobility and speed up the muscles healing process.
Measurements (Sizing) & Video Tutorial
Please indicate the following measurements in the NOTES section of your VIEW CART:
- Please do all measuring while the dog is standing. Have the dog's leg perpendicular to the torso to create a 90 degree angle at the hip hinge.
- We recommend using a soft measuring tape.
- Measure with a snug fit due to the neoprene being stretchable
See the video below and please write down the following:
Knee measurement A) Measure around the highest part of the leg. This is usually where the thigh meets the hip near the groin.
Knee measurement B) Carefully find the middle of the knee cap and measure around the leg.
Knee measurement C) Find the area 1 inch above the ankle joint and measure around that part of the leg. DO NOT MEASURE AROUND THE ANKLE JOINT.
Knee measurement D) Measure the length from the highest point of the thigh (A) to the knee (B). Please place the measuring tape in center of leg like the video.
Knee Measurement E) Measure the length from the knee (B) to the area 1 inch about the ankle joint (C). Please place the measuring tape in the center of the leg and go straight down like in the video.
If you need a Dog Harness, please measure the following steps:
Harness measurement A) Find the lowest part of the neck and measure around the neck.
Harness measurement B) Measure around the chest right behind the front legs.
Harness measurement C) Measure around the waist right infront of the hind legs.
Harness measurement D) Start at the lowest part of the neck and end where you measured the waist.
Our harness is only an attachment aid for the connector belt and knee brace. A leash should not be used on it because the strength is only for the brace. We are not responsible if you use a leash and it breaks. Please be advised.
How to use
Pull up the brace until it fully covers the knee area. Take the fastening strap, place it under the abdomen and over the back and fasten the velcro on the outer side. Make sure that there is some pressure but don't forget about the natural position of the knee.
