What Our Top Dog Says About the Dog Carpus Protector:
The Dog Carpus Protector can be used before and after surgery. When dogs suffer injuries in the lower leg joints such as from the carpal joints, there are more often traumatic causes behind this occurrence.
In connection with these complex joints being injured, ligaments are often affected in some way. The healing period is long and the dog needs a support around the joint as to not worsen the injury during this period. The carpus protector is stretched around your dog's leg, then secured on the medical-grade neoprene to stabilize the leg and let the ligament heal.

My dog is a minature poodle and is 17 pounds. What size wrap do I need
It would be best to measure your dog\'s leg and look at the measurement chart. Some poodles have longer legs and you might need a larger size. Our 20 lb bichon takes a small because he has shorter legs. It\'s hard to size over the internet, so we have a program where you buy two and send back the size that doesn\'t fit for free. We automatically include a return label when two products of different sizes are ordered
