Hock / Achilles Brace

The Pet Ortho Hock Brace is used for canine hind limb issues in the tarsal (hock) joint area. 

The brace may be used to treat ligament injuries, torn tendons or medial/lateral instabilities in the tarsal joint.  The most common use for this brace is treatment of a torn Achilles tendon. 

Hock braces can be made with or without hinges to achieve the desired results.  The brace supports a dog’s limb to provide stability and control the range of motion which can provide pain relief.

Common Conditions Treated with Hock Braces

  • Torn Achilles tendon
  • Varus/Valgus instabilities
  • Foot drop

Evaluation and Treatment Plans
Our certified clinicians work with pet owners and veterinarians to understand the underlying condition and recommended treatment.  If your pet has already been evaluated, please contact us or we can provide an overview before you see the veterinarian.
Custom Fabrication
Each animal has unique anatomy, so each orthotic and prosthetic device is custom molded and fabricated to your pet, ensuring the best outcome during the healing process.  Our team has 20+ years experience designing custom prosthetics and orthotics.
Fitting & Adjustments
Once fabrication is complete, your pet will be fit with their brace or device. We’ll make sure it has proper fit and function to achieve the desired outcome.  We’ll provide instructions and test the device on your pet, making sure the animal moves appropriately while healing.
Ongoing Treatment
Our treatment protocol includes follow up appointments during the 14 week healing process to make any adjustments needed.  We work closely with veterinarians, make adjustments as needed and can do follow ups at our clinic or your vet’s office in the Phoenix area.

Very very very happy with price, service, and quality with getting a hock brace for my dog Lola. Big improvement with her mobility on her right rear leg. Lucky to find them locally in Scottsdale.
