The Balto® Lux addresses injuries and congenital disorders of the shoulders in dogs. This canine glenohumeral (shoulder) brace is a great solution for dogs suffering from limited mobility. This breathable compression brace, made with non-neoprene material, provides stability and support to your dog's shoulders without severely compromising natural movement. This shoulder brace is an excellent option for dogs in need of additional support while maintaining an active lifestyle.

Brace Applications:
  • Sprains and strains of the shoulder
  • Post-surgical support
  • Structural support for soft tissue injuries to the glenohumeral joint
  • Chronic shoulder pain management
  • Wound management; protection of bandages from biting, licking, gravity and friction
Brace Features:
  • Includes internal stiffeners to increase or decrease compression as needed
  • Optional hobble strap included for a “shoulders-width” snug fit
  • The brace compresses both shoulders simultaneously for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis.
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable padding and straps that can be lengthened or shortened to ensure an excellent fit

Comes in sizes x-small through large. To find the best size for your pet, visit the sizing chart here.

All Balto® braces are made from high-quality materials, not neoprene, which is known to: collect bacteria, provide inadequate support, and wear down quickly. A variety of sizes ensure a secure fit. No pinching straps.

Recommended for all ages unless otherwise advised by veterinarians. Apply brace for balanced increments of time, if appropriate, for pets under the age of 2 to prevent possible growth disturbances.

Size was a concern

My dog hates the brace but we are getting better. He is 76lbs and his height is 24 in on the dot. I got the size for his weight so he is a bit short for it. But it is working.

Loved it

The rehab vet had one for my pup with medial shoulder instability syndrome. He did really well with it. She suggested we purchase one for long term use, so we did! Only down side would be the amount of straps it takes for it to be put on. I like that it makes it variable in size, but can be annoying.
