The Hero Knee Brace is the preferred treatment for dogs that cannot have surgery

Did your dog tear its ACL?? A knee brace is used to support your dog’s stifle by limiting the dangerous movement called a “cranial drawer.” Prolonged cranial drawer movement causes rubbing, and the joint will form arthritis. Bracing limits this grinding motion while allowing the knee to bend through the full range of motion. Supporting the knee with a brace will get your furry friend playing again.

Do they work?
