Addressing hock pain, lameness and neuromuscular problems, the Balto® Hock also aides:

  • Achilles injuries and orthopedic conditions
  • Neurological conditions
  • Pre/Post-surgical immobilization
  • Contralateral support
  • Protection and supporting bandages

The brace can even be used as an alternative to surgery if the patient is not an ideal candidate and can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis. Compression helps increase blood pressure in the area, raising the temperature of the immediate area and helping to reduce pain. Sizes ideal for cats also available.

Features:

  • Removable aluminium splints
  • The front splint is slightly adjustable
  • High quality breathable fabric
  • Additional compression
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Hand washable (always remove the rigid splints before washing)
  • Available in 6 sizes

Marley is a 13-year-old black female English Lab weighing about 70 lbs. She has had a total of 3 surgeries in just 2 years. The original CCT replacement with a cadaver tendon has lasted about 2 years when the tendon tore through the anchor point. As a solution, a decision was made to try and fuse the joint with a bracket though that had to be removed eventually due to an infection setting in. Screws and pins were used alternatively, but one of the screws backed out, requiring another surgery to remove and replace it.

Marley wore a custom brace right after the second surgery, but the swelling rendered it unuseable. She had to switch back to a splint which was difficult to maintain as it had to be taken off before she could swim for her rehabilitation. We decided it's time to look for a simpler solution and found a Balto Brace through KVP Orthotics which has worked wonderfully since. She doesn't mind wearing it, there was no rubbing, and it can be taken off easily for swimming and put back on when she walks a lot.

We had a very specific need for a hock brace, and this answered that need. We imagine a more adjustable angle or a pivoting joint could accommodate a wider variety of pets, but overall it has worked really well and reduced the stress on Marley. She had no initial issues to wearing the brace as she was used to the prior, much more intrusive splint, and this was much easier to give her a break from. There isn't any resistance when we put the brace on her. She seems…

Colbie has been using the Balto Hock for slightly over a year now, and she has made improvements on her willingness to bear weight and step more on her weakened leg. She had a total of four surgeries after she was not properly operated for her calcaneus fracture in 2015. If the vet specialist had suggested a brace right after her arthrodesis surgery, I would think her muscles on that leg would probably be able to gain more and her ligament probably won't deteriorate as quickly. Six months later another vet suggested the Balto Brace! We instantly ordered one and after putting it on for all her walks, her gait was slowly getting better and was stepping more confidently. Of course, with hydrotherapy and extra swimming lessons, those activities helped her leg muscles as they've already atrophied quite a lot. We tried everything to save her leg from amputation. Everything about the Balto Brace is great, and the quality is very good. Thumbs up for Balto for saving dogs like Colbie. I suggest this to other dogs who might need it!
