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, often create elbow afflictions 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
Please measure the circumference around the elbow joint- that is the KEY MEASUREMENT FOR FIT. The trick is to prevent it from slipping. It's well made but you need to assure it doesn't slip.
Be sure to measure your dog so you get the right size. A snug fit is important to secure the leg. We have translated the size chart into inches.
