The Balto® Jump is designed to support one of the most common injuries in canines, Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) trauma. Affecting millions of patients annually, CCL injuries include:

  • Full or partial tearing of the ligament
  • Luxation of the patella
  • Knee joint conditions such as arthritis, arthrosis and varus/valgus instability

It can also be used as an alternative to surgery if the patient is not an ideal candidate, pre/postsurgical support, and contralateral support to prevent new injuries.

The Balto® Jump has two pockets which contain angled splints that help restrict the lateral movement, otherwise referred to as a drawer movement, of the knee when necessary. An abdominal band ensures the brace is secured around the dog. An additional stabilization strap is provided for more active animals.

The brace 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.

Using the Balto® Jump on both the left and right knees can also help with cases related to:

  • Senior dogs as a result of general degenerative process
  • Overweight dogs dealing with high pressure on their good leg
  • Active dogs with an important compensation behavior

Features:

  • Removable aluminium splints
  • Straps can be trimmed for a secure and custom fit
  • High quality breathable fabric
  • Additional compression
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Hand washable (always remove the rigid splints before washing)
  • Available in 6 sizes and as left or right knee

I noticed Janie limping and favoring her left hind leg. After taking her in to see Dr. Le, she was diagnosed with a luxating patella. We decided on the Balto Knee brace as an alternative to surgery. Janie has a medial patella luxation which means that her kneecap slides in and out of its socket, causing her to have difficulty in walking as well as discomfort and pain. Janie was a little skeptical of it at first, but as soon as she felt she was getting around better, she gave into it. I'm happy that's she is doing much better with it, and we'll avoid surgery for a while.

Precious came in limping and was found to have a cranial crucial tear in her right knee. Because of her age as well as budgetary limitations, she was not a good candidate for surgery, so a brace and good pain management with medications and laser therapy were chosen as an alternative option.

Upon the arrival of her brace, she appeared to have a significantly worse limp in her left hindlimb. Many times when a dog tears one cruciate ligament, they will tear the cruciate ligament in the opposite leg as well, which was what happened in Precious's case. We opted to place a brace on her left leg instead of the initial right she was presented for. She appears so much happier with the brace on.

Jersey had a lateral suture surgery for a torn ACL and needed some extra support during her recovery period. My vet recommended KVP Orthotics. We were very impressed with the reviews we read online and decided to try it out. Not disappointed at all. It was easy to fit on her with the help of our vet the first time, and she adjusted to it super fast. Thank you for providing Jersey with the support she needs for her recovery!

Rosie is 13 years old. About four months ago, she ruptured her right cranial cruciate ligament. Surgery was not a viable option, so I started researching alternatives online. I found the website for Balto assistive devices, and thought the stifle brace would answer my needs. As you can see, Rosie is perfectly comfortable and happy to wear it! She chases squirrels, plays with other dogs, and races through the woods near my place. Her favorite thing to do is fling herself into a snow pile and make angels. The brace gives her the stability in that limb to continue doing 'dog stuff,' which was always my end aim.

Red was diagnosed with a severe CCL tear on his right knee. As an alternative to surgery, our vet, Dr. Melissa Raymond, recommended trying the Balto Jump for anytime he is out of the crate as well as when we introduce short walks back into his recovery plan.

He has now been using the brace for just about a month now. Initially he was unsure of the brace, and we did have to modify it as a female strapping sequence (just making sure to not obstruct his urethra) in order to have it stay on, but it is working great. He is able to move freely, and it allows us to give him some time out of the crate without worrying he will injure his knee any further.

We have been very happy with the brace, and the customer service of the company is awesome! We initially ordered a size that was too big, and they worked with us to get the right size and were so nice and helpful along the way!

Thank you again so much for all your help! I really do appreciate it!
