The Balto Hock brace for cats can be used with or without splints to support a variety of injuries and illnesses. Compression from the brace increases the blood pressure in the area of the hock to slightly elevate the temperature which reduces pain caused by the conditions. Excellent after surgery to promote comfortable and supportive healing.
