The Balto® Up rear harness provides confidence in mobility to pets with the optional assistance from pet parents. This canine rear support brace is a great solution for dogs suffering from limited mobility and motor difficulties following injury, disease, or aging. This breathable support harness, made with non-neoprene material, provides stability and support to your dog's hind end without compromising natural movement. The brace also allows for natural elimination. This hind-end brace is an excellent option for dogs in need of additional support while maintaining an active lifestyle.

Brace Applications:
  • Alternative to the use of a towel or other household item which is known to cause abdominal injury to pets, or strain to the user supporting
  • Post-surgical mobility support
  • Complementary treatment option to physical therapy – can be used in combination with hydrotherapy and acupuncture
  • In clinic or therapy to support limited mobility patients
  • For climbing in or out of vehicles and stairs
Brace Features:
  • Two short airplane aluminum splints; run laterally alongside the body to provide structural support/ stiffness while mobile
  • The brace can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis.
    • Compression helps increase blood flow in the affected area, which helps reduce stiffness, pain, and inflammation
  • Adjustable straps can be lengthened or shortened on the leg to ensure an excellent fit around the hind end
  • Height-adjustable handles allow a comfortable extension from the brace to the user’s hands.

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

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!

Rear Harness Support for my Pitbull

It helps her back legs especially when putting her in the back seat of my car. The walks I take her on are short ones since my girl has arthritis. I used the brace on these short walks also for support. She’s gotten used to it and gets ready for me to put the brace on.

Lifesaver

This harness was incredibly helpful during my girl's last few months, she was diagnosed with degenerative mylopathy. But with the help of the harness she was able to "chase" her brother, play, and confidently walk around the house. It was always by her side.

She did pass on February 17, her harness will be donated to the local boxer rescue.
