Has Anyone Used A Splint/brace To Support The Remaining Leg On A Tripo

Recommended Posts

I have been posting photos on Facebook of my twelve year old foster with one front leg. An animal physical therapist contacted me, and recommended the therapaw brace to provide support for her front leg. She sent photos of greyhounds in full flight wearing one. Has anyone used one? I work with disabled people, and these look like the splints that my wheelchair clients wear to walk. It makes sense that it would work on dogs. Thoughts...

We didn't but I don't think this was available when we had a tripod. Sounds like a good deal to me.

I am not familiar with the suppliers but I do know that several of the military working dogs that lost their legs wear braces on the remaining leg quite effectively. There are many many pictures of them as most are public figures-Mama Lucca, MWD Leyka, Sgt Rambo etc.
