Do knee braces help dogs?
The answer really depends on who you ask. We say yes! Why would others say no?
Knee braces have been available to dogs for over 15 years. That said, they are just now being taught in veterinary schools.
Most Veterinarians were not taught the process in school, so there can be some apprehension from them. After all, they were taught surgery was the best option. If your Veterinarian says bracing does not work, simply ask how many braces have they fit or tried to fit on dogs?
Today, we find many dogs cannot have surgery. So bracing is becoming more used in practice. Studies published by Veterinarians have shown that knee braces can be helpful.
In the end, it is your choice how you can help your pet in your situation. Do your best, that's all anyone can ask.
