Dog Wrist Brace for Sprained Wrist
Located on the foreleg below the elbow, the wrist is especially prone to injury. While strains are more common in hips and thighs from overstretching, sprains affect the ligaments (tissues) that connect bones, especially those in the wrist and knee. Dog wrist sprains can be caused by a hard landing from the car or rough exercise.
Signs of a Dog's Sprained Wrist
If you’ve ever moved your wrist the wrong way or rolled an ankle, you know that the discomfort can linger long after the incident takes place. Symptoms of your dog’s sprained wrist include:
·Limping and favoring one leg over the other
·Swelling or redness of joints
If you identify that your dog is suffering from a sprained wrist (or even mildly limping if is persistent), it’s important to make an appointment with your veterinarian as soon as possible in case it is signs of a more serious condition, such as bone degeneration.
In some extreme cases of grade II ( the joint is only partially functional, but the dog may still be able to walk) and III (CCL), the veterinarian may recommend surgery. Anti-inflammatory medicines can greatly reduce the pain. When surgery isn’t an appropriate option, many dog owners consider dog wrist brace or front leg splints. The Lovepluspet’s dog wrist brace stabilizes the joint to allow scar tissue to form a callus over the sprain for healing. Other treatment options include limiting physical activity.
Dog Wrist Brace for Carpal Hyperextensio
Composed of seven major bony structures, the carpus is located on a dog’s forelimb above the top of the paw (it is analogous to the rear leg hock). Normally an acute condition, Canine Carpal Hyperextension occurs when excessive force is applied to the carpus leading to collapse of the carpal joint. Dogs diagnosed with canine carpal hyperextension have likely suffered a traumatic event, such as falling from a significant height. Older dogs, especially Collie breeds, may show signs of hyperextension due to a degeneration of the ligaments.
Puppies may experience developmental hyperextension.
·Signs of Canine Carpal Hyperextension include:
·Swelling of the forelimb
·Favoring of one leg over the other
As always, consult with your veterinarian if you notice that your dog is in any significant pain.
When surgery is not an appropriate option, especially if the case is mild, consider other ways to support your dog's healing. As with sprains, exercise restriction, hydrotherapy, and a dog wrist wrap can provide support for natural healing. Lovepluspet's dog wrist brace can also be used for post-operative care. Front leg support for dogs can help stabilize the joint so the soft tissue can heal.
