The Walkabout Knee Brace
Stabilizes knee joints on dogs and cats
The Walkabout knee brace us patent 29/583,971 516213904-D* offers stability and compression to injuries involving the knee joint. PLEASE NOTE*, THE CHEST HALTER IS SOLD SEPARATELY.
Our 3mm neoprene brace has been used to rehabilitate the knee joints on thousands of dogs and cats with minor to major joint issues ranging from overuse, cranial cruciate ligament tears, luxating (dislocating) patella and arthritis. Front chest harness is sold separately.
The Walkabout Knee support brace will keep the joint compressed and stabilized to allow any inflammation to calm down. This will give the joint a chance to heal. In cases of mild instability, the joint is held secure.
*Because the forces on the knee joint and back end area we recommend a chest halter to attach the suspender to prevent the brace from sliding off the back end or slipping back on your pet. It is recommended but not mandatory for the knee brace to function.
The brace should be worn during active times and taken off for quiet times and when your pet is sleeping. Please remove when no one is home.
THE WALKABOUT KNEE BRACE is made from 3.0mm neoprene fabric. It has 2 stirrup straps to hold up over the knee that fastens with velcro over your pets back. This allows for greater adjustability. The final touch is a suspender that loops thru the soft back straps and has a clip that will snap onto any chest halter at your own choosing, or you can buy a chest halter from us. PLEASE NOTE, THE CHEST HALTER IS SOLD SEPARATELY. For male dogs please check under the abdomen to make sure there is enough room for peeing. You must see a steady stream otherwise loosen the wrap over the back.
We also offer some additional items that might be a benefit as well. Comfort Sleeves can be placed on the stirrups of the knee brace for extra padding in sensitive areas and an extra knee brace suspender can be ordered in addition to the one that comes with the product. The suspenders can be attached to our Chest Halters, available separately. If your pet needs more space around middle, a Belly Extender can be ordered separately. See these items in accessories.
