Top Dog Tips About the Kruuse Dog Elbow Protector:
It is very tricky to protect a dog's elbow due to the extensive movement and the funnel shape of the elbow joint connected to a much smaller leg. The dog elbow protector is very well made but we are hearing reports of the elbow protector not staying put on the dog's elbow. For that reason, if you are buying the elbow protector, we recommend you also pick up a roll of flex tape to help secure it in place.
The Dog Elbow Protector can be used before & after surgery and in cases of chronic arthritis ie. Osteoarthritis, OCD, Ligament Injuries, Arthritis, ED and other issues. Dogs that lie on hard surfaces, they often create elbow affilctions and need the padding of an elbow protector so the joint can heal. Many dogs are afflicted by articular cartilage injuries or of articular cartilage wear on their elbows. Often it is related to the limited ability for the dog to be able to cope with exercise, training or competition.
Often a dog starts acting lame or picking up their leg, which they can then ease by moving about a bit. When dogs exhibit these symptoms, an elbow protector is a good solution to offer the sore joint and ligaments support while keeping the elbow warm.
The dog elbow protector increases the heat, giving the muscles a better oxygen supply and better circulation
For many dogs, the elbow protector can be decisive in how well they can adapt to their joint problems. It counteracts pain, swelling and gives muscles a chance to rest
Here Are The Doggie Details:
The Elbow Protector can be used before and after surgery and in connection with
- Elbow Hygroma
- Elbow Callus
- Ligament Injuries
- Arthritis ED
The elbow protector is fastened above and under the joint with the aid of two velcro bands that run through loops in the protector so that it does not slide down the leg. We also recommend buying the dog flex bandage to help secure the elbow protector so it doesn't slide up and down the dog's leg.

They are improving the design so it doesn't slip as much. Fitting a dog's elbow is tricky because it's a funnel shape going from a large area to a smaller area. For protection that is padded and will stay secure, we recommend the Healer Medical Wraps.
