Clinical Solutions to Pet Problems
Elbow braces are used to correct symptoms such as limping, collapsing, inability to bear weight and excessive looseness (laxity) in the elbow joint. They are used for conditions such as Arthritis, Degenerative Joint Disease, Dysplasia, and Chronic Instability of the Elbow Joint. Generally, elbow braces provide support or immobilization for the Radial/Ulnar and Humerus area.
Elbow braces are usually used long-term for chronic conditions or instability but can also be used on a short-term basis for pre- or post-surgical applications. Based on the diagnosis, they can include various types of flexible or adjustable joints in order to allow or restrict motion.
These braces can be fabricated to include a front (anterior) and rear (posterior) shell (known as a "clamshell" design) for complete immobilization for a fracture or protection and support for an osteosarcoma, for example. This design allows for frequent cleaning and inspection of the affected area, a benefit not easily achievable with serial splinting and casting or bandaging.
Elbow braces are $849. Exact pricing will be determined as we learn the specifics of your pet's condition.
