Canine ankle braces: Hock Braces


Since most injuries occur in the hind legs, especially in athletic and aging animals, hock braces are some of the most commonly used orthotics for companion animals. Etiologies such as Achilles Tendon Injury or Repair, Arthrodesis, Contracture Management, Tendonitis, and Nerve Injury are all treated successfully pre- or post-surgically or prophylactically with custom orthotic bracing. Based on the diagnosis, these braces can include various types of flexible or adjustable joints in order to allow or restrict motion at the tibiotarsal joint axis.
