The Balto® Bone is an alternative to splints and casts for treating hyperextension and bone fractures of the front leg, ensuring support and stabilization during the healing process. The brace is made from a comfortable breathable fabric making it ideal for day to day use.
It features three rigid splints - one fixed onto the back of the brace, and two that can be freely adjusted with strong Velcro® to provide different positions and levels of stability.
It is recommended to use this brace alongside the Balto® Splint on the unaffected joint to allow the dog to better compensate for the compromised leg.
