    Default orthopedic braces for dogs

    Is anyone familar with orthopedic braces for dogs

    > Stifle Braces
    > Carpal / Tarsal Braces
    > Hock Braces
    > Prosthetics
    > Hip Braces
    > Spinal Braces
    > Elbow Braces
    > Contracture Braces
    > More Prosthetics

    The stifle brace for mobility support in dogs that are not viable candidated for surgury is of primary interest for me.

    I know a lot of the people in the Ortho Dogs email group recommend them for dogs who cannot have surgery. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/orthodogs/info

    This is where we bought Dex's chair. They have braces much like OrthoPets. We had talked to OrthoPets before and they had excellent knowledge and were extremely helpful. Dex was not a candidate because the amputations were to for up.
