The brace is fairly easy to put on depending on your dog's cooperation...Pretty much a painless thing. No instructions came with it so I'll share my thoughts. Undo both straps, UNLOCK THE FLEXOR/EXTENSOR HINGE. You want limited flexion (bending of the knee), not so important that the extension is less limited. The aim with a damaged ACL is to keep the femur from sliding forward during movement. Practice limiting the flexion of the hinge joint before locking it, you may have to wiggle it a little to lock. Now slip the paw into the sleeve and carefully pull up on the brace until the hinge in at or above the 'knee joint'. Then bring the over the body strap under and over the hindquarters and fasten securely. Lastly, fasten the velcro strap securely near to the ankle.

Great dog knee brace! Our dog suffered injury causing his patella to slip. We put him on crate rest and used this brace for a few weeks and he has healed without surgery. Highly recommended.

My geriatric lab had an ACL tear where the vet did not suggest surgery due to her age. I bought this since she was unable to bear any weight on her hind leg and it greatly helped.

Dependable Support,The brace is well made and super easy to put on. I have a retriever mix and got the size large. I could probably gone up a size. She immediately took to it. Was quite happy as it relieved some of the pain trying to walk.

The brace is well made and super easy to put on. I was pleased as it relieved some of the pain of trying to walk. We used it for 3 weeks and let her wear it occasionally at night when she was resting. She is now able to walk more comfortably without it as she tore her cruciate ligament. We are taking it very slowly. w I love the support and stability of this brace is really fantastic. bracek can be adjusted to fit the dog best by adjusting it to provide very stable support, really great!!! This brace has been a great help for my dog. I hope this helps you and your pup!
