Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.There are quite a few braces out there that offer support to dogs that have weakness in their hind ends. The one that sounds the most similar to me is the Hip Hound which you can view here: http://orthodog.comIt utilizes a body-wide support system to help support the hips. Instead of splints running down the sides, there's a strap that runs up the back and is "shortened" to keep the hips in proper position.
