Maintenance & Repair

A clean brace not only prevents infections, irritation, and a stinky smell; but it also allows your brace to last longer. To help support the longevity of your bracing device, here are some of our tips on how to properly clean your orthopedic bracing:

  1. Remove as much hair as possible from any Velcro® frequently to prevent compaction.
  2. Use lint roller or lightly adhesive tape to remove hair from the material of the brace.
  3. By hand, use warm water and a gentle cleansing soap to remove any stains and odors.
  4. Rinse soap thoroughly from the brace
  5. Hang to dry. Once the brace is completely dry, it is ready for use!

Didn't fit the way we needed it to

Unfortunately the splint has a gap in between where the to straps are and it doesn't support his leg where he was injured so the vet said not to use it. And reading their return policy they make it basically impossible to even request a return. I might as well of thrown $100 out the window.

Hey Kaitlin, I'm sorry to hear the brace wasn't helpful to your fur baby. I did just email you return instructions if you would like to return the brace. We might have alternative options as well if you would like to exchange it for a different one. Please reach out for further assistance/questions.

Good quality

Miss needs to get used to wearing it, but it looks like a quality product! Good customer service, I received prompt replies every time I wrote to Balto! Only thing to improve is delivery in Canada, as it's not available at the moment and I had to have the product delivered to friends in the USA and pay postage again.

Didn't think it would work!

I was skeptical but this device would work for my cat. Follow the instructions of 30 minutes a day increasing it half hour every day until he was used to wearing it. Has improved his Mobility immensely. Never even knew they made these things for cats.
