Very difficult to put on. Velcro sticks to every part, not always the spot you are trying to velcro it to.

I don't recommend this product

Room for improvement

Constructed well, a good brace, but my dog has short legs and it covers his elbows. This makes it impossible for him to get up when laying down.

Would be nice if the leg wrap was in sections and could be removed. I will be returning the brace.

However, we will pass along your suggestion to our production team. Please let us know if you need any assistance with your return. You can contact us at -

Jake is a 13.5 year old male Pug suffering from severe arthritis and instability to his right shoulder. Patient has significant arthritis to all four limbs, being treated with pain management and acupuncture. Radiographs were taken and sent to orthopedic specialist to evaluate. Due to his age and overall condition owner did not want to do any type of surgical procedure, so getting a brace was the only hope we had for him.

Jake started with the brace on for 2 hours a day for 3 days. The owner reported that he started walking more within the first three days. His progress has since continued to be remarkable day by day as we've seen the brace providing Jake with the stability he needs. After two weeks we started using laser treatment on top of the brace use, and he is like a puppy again and wants his brace on every day!

The Balto Lux seems to work well for Echo who has medial shoulder instability. We have found that it stops her leg from abducting from the shoulder, and she walks with a normal stride! The harness itself has durable material. Being a fluffy dog, fur does get everywhere, but it's quite easy to pull off this harness.
