I just wanted to add China’s story…she’s another APBT with bad knees. Three years ago she injured her left ACL and I didn’t have the funds or heart to deal with surgery. I opted for the A-trac brace and had great success. She never chewed it or complained about it…there were a few times that I noticed it was rubbing her hair away and/or chaffing her skin so I just cut the toe out of a sock and used that as a protective layer for her skin. After 12 weeks of wearing it she was using the leg without limping and the only noticeable injury/issue was that her leg was a bit atrophied but I assumed that was normal (it returned to normal a month after full use).
Recently China injured her other knee…and I’ve contacted Wound Wear again and plan on buying a brace for her right leg along with another brace for her left, hoping that will keep her from re-injuring it during the next 12 weeks. And just an FYI I know the left brace was still in good shape when I took it off last I just can’t find it. It’ll be interesting to see how she does with two nearly rigid knees.
Here is a picture of China standing with her left side brace on.
Thank you guys you offer a wonderful service. There’s nothing like watching your dog in pain and not knowing what to do. Keep up the good work!!
