The 'FirstCanine' Dual Knee Support is an external, orthopaedic, device, specifically created as an aid to dogs suffering with Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) injuries, Arthritic conditions, Meniscus damage, Dysplasia, Patella problems, Tendinitis, etc. It's advanced design is intended to assist in stabilising the area by keeping the Stifle joint compressed/secure, with the result that it could, possibly, minimise the need for surgery. When fitted correctly, this Stifle Brace can have a soothing effect, helping to overcome lameness and joint pain/discomfort and, in doing so, may expedite the healing process and aid longer term recovery/treatment (especially post-surgery), which could then allow the dog to quickly regain normal mobility and wellbeing. The 'cone' covers the thigh & knee area, with a rear opening (using Velcro closures), for ease of fitting (allowing the brace to be wrapped around the thigh, rather than the dog having to lift it's leg, thereby reducing the risk of aggravating the existing condition) and the top edge has a band (with Velcro fitments), to provide extra control of adjustment/comfort. The Brace is secured in place by a single 'over the back' strap that attaches to the opposite leg, along with a 'holding belt' that can fit between the back strap and a harness, to minimise the potential of any slippage to the rear, especially for dog's that have a sloping rump. 'FirstCanine' Knee Supports are most effective when the dog is standing upright or walking. MADE IN ENGLAND.
Sizing is determined by measuring the circumference around the highest part of the leg (round the very top of the thigh area & under the belly/groin).

PLEASE NOTE: It recommended to use these items when the dog is standing or normal walking, not during strenuous physical exercise (eg. competition). Almost all Canine limb supports are designed to be most effective when the dog is standing upright or walking. Some movement/dislodging is unavoidable when the dog sits, because the natural posture changes and, in the case of the stifle (knee) the joint’s shape becomes more pointed. The Brace should return to its normal position, once the dog stands up.
