It is ideal for cases of hyperflexion or hyperextension of the carpus and tarsus, minor ligament distortions, sprains and partial bone fractures, when conservative treatment is preferable to surgery.

Ares is a 7 year old male Belgian Malinois who competes in protection sports and helps with herding my livestock when needed. He partially ruptured his tendon in his pastern, so we decided to get him a Balto Splint brace from KVP. Initially when he started wearing the brace, he walked around trying to avoid putting full weight on that leg, shaking it, etc. He adapted fairly quickly though and now just goes through a brief 'this feels weird' period when I put it on then settles down. I've been very happy with the brace, and the customer support from the company. I've already recommended them to a couple of people I know and will continue to recommend them. I wish I'd known about this company 8 years ago when another one of my dogs tore her cruciate. I think I would have been happy with a brace from KVP.
