Dog Hip Dysplasia Brace – BT Life

Balto – Dog Hip Dysplasia Brace

Our BT Hip brace is a fantastic solution to help dogs that suffer from hip dislocation, arthritis, mild to moderate hip dysplasia, decreased endurance during activity, hip pain, lower back pain or weakness and back leg limping. This hip brace is perfect for pre or post operative support, and your dog can continue all normal activity including swimming while wearing it.

The brace is also great for puppies and young dogs who suffer from low back pain and early hip dysplasia symptoms. The brace also supports the low back and hip area for dogs recovering from surgery or injury. The support and stability provided by the brace helps decrease pain and inflammation while still allowing your dog freedom of movement.

 WHAT IS IT FOR?

The BT Hip brace for dogs, helps dogs suffering from hip dysplasia, reducing pain by exerting bilateral compression on the hips. It is effective for all degrees of dysplasia including degree E (the most severe).
It is also used for other pathologies (hip arthrosis for example). It is an excellent alternative to surgery in cases where the dog cannot be operated. It is made of breathable and washable material that is both retentive and compressive.
BT LIFE comes with 2 handles adjustable in length that can be hooked to the brace in case of need and that the owner can use to help the dog get into or out of a car or on stairs. The handles can be removed if they are not necessary.

 

ADVANTAGES

BT Life consists of 2 rigid disks lined with a double layer of soft high density material. These disks act to compress both hips, increasing body temperature in the zone and thus reducing the pain caused to the dog by the pathology. Constant use of the brace leads to concrete well-being in the life of the dog, reducing part of the effects of dysplasia.

HOW TO WEAR


Open all the straps, place the brace facing the dog’s rear legs and slip it on like a harness.


Before closing the straps check that the disks are correctly positioned at the hips.


Now slide the straps inside the white rings and close them on themselves, tightening them strongly to ensure proper compression.


If the straps are too long you can shorten them, removing the Velcro end and cutting the excess material.


Then put the Velcro part back on and tighten the straps so that they close near the back and not around the brace. It is important for the brace to be very tightly closed.


Put on the handles if necessary.
