As consumers of veterinary care, we are committed to sharing a full palette of services for our clients who might be looking outside the box for solutions for their mobility challenged pets. A few years ago we met Mark Hardin and Jim Alaimo of My Pet’s Brace, at the STAAR Conference, and were impressed with the elegant simplicity of their braces.
While we have successfully helped clients whose dogs have CCL tears and carpal breakdown with carts, another non-surgical option we encourage people to explore are braces. Unlike a cart, a brace will hold the affected joint in proper position to allow for healing and the formation of scar tissue.
We are offering a casting service at our facility for My Pet’s Brace. Patients can come to our facility and we will cast the affected leg for a brace and send it off to be fabricated . The brace is shipped to us and we will do the fitting and adjustments.
Consult with your veterinarian before making an appointment for a casting. A veterinary prescription for a brace is necessary. We also offer a rehab consult with Erika McElwey of Change Your Range, as an adjunct to use of a a brace. She offers a full palette of rehab options, including laser, massage, triggerpoint myotherapy, and strengthening programs. Visit My Pet’s Brace website to learn more about their wonderful products.
