What is the Dog Elbow Brace?
The Lovepluspet's dog elbow brace comes with two velcro suspender stirrups that wrap around the back of your dog for quick and easy adjustments. Dogs can wear the brace during active hours of the day and the dog elbow brace should be removed during quiet times or when they will be left unattended. The Lovepluspet's brace is extremely soft, durable, and designed with active dogs in mind.
Choosing an Elbow Brace for Your Dog
Dog elbow brace offers comfort to painful dysplasia, arthritic joints, protects against elbow pressure sores (ulcers), offers support and compression for joint instability and deformity, and helps prevent the formation of hygromas (fluid-filled inflamed areas) from laying on hard surfaces.
Elbow hygromas can come on suddenly. These fluid-filled swellings occur in response to repeated trauma to the tissue over bony prominences. They most commonly appear on the elbows of large breeds and overweight dogs. However, elbow hygromas can affect dogs of all sizes and breeds.
When selecting an elbow brace for your pet it’s important to consider ease of use, durability, and comfort.
·For Elbow Dysplasia
If your pet’s breed is one that’s prone to elbow dysplasia, dog wraps or a support brace can help stabilize the lower limp while keeping the paw free. This is especially important in breeds such as Labradors. The reigning champion for the most popular breed is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, with risks increasing as they age. Rather than restricting movement, the brace provides stability to the joint, while still allowing freedom of movement. This will not only improve your pet’s quality of life but will allow them to continue being an active part of your family.
Does Elbow Brace Work? Yes, but Limited
Bracing is considered a conservative treatment since it's not very invasive. If a patient continues to experience pain and decreased elbow mobility after using a brace, other treatments should be considered. Rather than restricting movement, the brace provides stability to the joint, while still allowing freedom of movement. This will not only improve your pet’s quality of life but will allow them to continue being an active part of your family.
What is the Elbow Dysplasia ?
Elbow dysplasia is the disease most commonly implicated in front limb lameness (limping) in dogs. It occurs when the bones that make up the elbow joint don't come together just right, leading eventually to painful movement in the forelimb. The joint malformation that causes elbow dysplasia is the most common underlying cause of elbow arthritis in dogs of all ages. Large breed dogs are most affected.The Golden Retriever is listed as #24 with 11.4% of all these dogs evaluated graded dysplastic and the Labrador Retriever at #26, with 11.1% of all dogs evaluated found to have elbow dysplasia.
