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.

Lux-Shoulder brace

To be honest for this review, I haven't had the brace but two days. I really think this will help him a lot when he gets use to wearing it. My dog has celebella hypoplasia, so he already has a problem walking in the first place. But since his problem has to deal with both shoulders (like swimmers puppy sydrone) but in the front, I really hope the brace will help him walk better.. The only problem I have is he has long hair and it is a little difficult making sure I get all of his hair to lay down in the right direction as not to crinkle his coat. I do like that the product is very light weight and my dog doesn't seem to mind wearing it. But with CH, his brain doesn't work like normal dogs. The trick is making him think it is his idea to wear the brace. :)

Good product, but need usage advice

I like this, but it did not come with instructions and have not been able to ask questions. Can he sleep with it on? How tight should it be? Do I loosen it when he lays down? An instructional booklet or video would be very helpful. I don’t use it as much as I should because I am worried about not doing it properly. Also, the fabric is a hair magnet. Dog is white so always looks a mess when wearing this.

Amazing Quality

This brace is extremely well made. Very durable, yet comfortable. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to use it because my best friend passed away. If I ever needed another brace for my other dogs, I would definitely return to Balto.

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.
