What Makes the SureFit® Calculator the Best Choice?

SureFit® Guarantee: we guarantee the perfect size, or we’ll pay your return shipping costs if an exchange is needed. That way there’s no doubt your pet will get the perfect fit.

We highly recommend using our SureFit® Calculator as it ensures the perfect custom fit for your pet. It requires a couple measurements, but only so we can provide your pet with the very best experience.

We recognize this takes a few minutes of your time, but those minutes are worth the happiness your pet will experience once they try out their wheelchair for the first time. Our wheelchairs have already helped more than 81,000 other pets. Let’s make that 81,001!

Other companies simply have you select a wheelchair based on weight, but that often results in a poor fit. Why? A 30 lb bulldog has a very different body type from a 30 lb corgi, but those companies will provide both with the same wheelchair.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the custom elbow brace help my dog?

Orthotic leg braces for dogs are designed to stabilize a pet’s elbow joint and support the upper front leg. A canine orthosis allows pets to return to near-normal function and bear weight on the injured leg sooner. A canine elbow brace is designed to protect an injured front limb and prevent further injury.

An orthosis or dog leg brace is ideal for:

  • An alternative to surgery.
  • Pets who are not surgical candidates, whether due to age or cannot go under anesthesia
  • Pets that suffer from a chronic injury that requires a brace to prevent further harm to the affected elbow joint.
  • Reduce pressure on the opposite or contralateral limb.
  • Aid in post-operative healing and rehabilitation.
  • Help pets stay active longer and, therefore, healthier.

What is included with the purchase of a custom elbow brace?

Each canine orthosis comes with everything your pet needs to support their limb, including:

  • A custom fabricated elbow brace 
  • Casting kit*
  • Fitting assistance and guidance from the orthotics expert

*The casting kit may also be purchased separately. If you have already purchased the Walkin’ Pets Casting Kit, the cost of the casting kit will be deducted from the final purchase price after checkout. 

How long is the fabrication process?

Each orthosis is fabricated by hand and custom-built to fit your best friend. Once the mold has arrived, fabrication will start immediately and take 7-10 business days to build. Casting kits will be shipped to the specified address within 24 hours of receiving the completed order form. 

Ship completed casts to:

Walkin’ Pets Ortho
6501 East Greenway Parkway,
103–533
Scottsdale, AZ 85254

 *Fabrication will not begin until the brace has been paid for in full.

How long does it take for a pet to adjust to wearing a custom leg brace?

It’s perfectly normal for there to be an adjustment period as a pet is getting used to wearing a brace. Your pet will need to break in the brace slowly for over a week or so. Every pet is different, and your pet may require more time. 

To help your pet adjust to their new orthosis, we recommend the following schedule:

Day 1: Brace should be worn for one to two hours.

Day 2: The brace can be worn for two to four hours.

Day 3: Extend the length of time the brace is worn to four to five hours.

Day 4: Extend the wear time between five to six hours.

Day 5: Your pet should be able to wear its leg brace all day.

How often can my dog wear their leg brace?

Walkin’ Pets Braces are custom-made to fit your dog comfortably and can be worn all day. A dog leg brace is intended to be worn for extended periods and most dogs will put their brace on in the morning and take it off right before they go to bed. A custom leg brace is usually recommended for injured pets who need their leg braced for several months or more as they heal or for pets who require long-term leg support.

Can my pet sleep in their orthosis?

The orthosis is designed to support a dog’s leg or joint as they move throughout the day to prevent further injury as the leg heals. Pets do not need to wear the brace when they are resting, and the orthosis should be removed at nighttime.

What happens if my pet’s elbow brace is not adjusted or fitted correctly?

Every Walkin’ Pets Brace is hand fabricated by a certified orthotist who builds the brace to perfectly fit the mold and measurements provided to us. Each custom elbow brace is crafted to fit your pet. Once you have received your orthosis, our orthotics specialist is happy to schedule a video call to review the fit and protocol to help your pet adjust to their new brace. 

Any signs of hair loss, skin irritation, redness, swelling, or sores should be reported to your veterinarian and orthotist immediately, additional brace adjustments may need to be made. 

Is the brace waterproof?

Yes, the dog leg braces are waterproof and can safely get wet. All foam liners are made from non-porous, closed-cell foam that does NOT trap moisture. It is not recommended that your pet leave the device on after getting it wet, as this can lead to skin irritation.

These devices can be used in underwater treadmills, etc., but should be taken off immediately following treatments to be dried off. Please follow the recommendations of your veterinarian or therapist as to use during treatments, etc.

How can I clean the brace?

We recommend spot cleaning your pet’s orthosis or prosthetic with a clean cloth or sponge and letting it air dry. To remove excess hair from touch fasteners, we recommend using a lint roller.

Is the casting process complicated?

Although it’s much easier than you may think to take a cast of your pet, for best results we recommend that you contact your veterinarian to assist you with the casting process. Once you place your order, Walkin’ Pets will ship you a casting kit with everything you need to get started.

We recommend a pet’s cast be taken with them in a standing position, bearing weight on the leg. The affected or injured leg should always be the leg that is cast. See the video below for step-by-step instructions on making a cast of a pet’s hind limb.

How to Cast a Front Leg

Once the cast is complete, ship the cast back to the Walkin’ Pets fabrication facility in Arizona, and we’ll ship the finished product within 7 – 10 business days. Need help? Our orthotics specialists are happy to help answer your casting questions; please call us at 888-253-0777.

How do you measure for the brace?

front leg brace measuring guide

Each Walkin’ Pets Brace is hand-made to fit your pet perfectly. To ensure the perfect fit for your dog’s leg brace, please use the casting kit shipped to you to make an impression of your dog’s leg. Along with the cast, we will need the following two measurements for all elbow braces:

Length Measurement 1: Inside of armpit to the inside of elbow center

Length Measurement 2: Inside of elbow center to inside of the carpal center

Circumference of your pet’s front leg at the widest point.

How are Walkin’ Pets Braces manufactured?

Once our certified Orthotist receives the cast of your pet’s limb and the brace has been paid in full, he will review the impression and the measurements submitted. He will begin to assess your pet’s medical needs and contact you with any questions regarding your pet’s diagnosis before fabricating.

During the fabrication process, the Orthotist will modify the plaster mold using hand tools and craft the design of the limb for a proper fit. This is done by adding and subtracting plaster material in the correct areas to achieve an ideal fit and form for your dog’s brace.  The Orthotist will relieve boney areas and compress soft-tissue areas to obtain a total control brace.  Then co-poly plastic is heated to 160 degrees, and the plastic is then vacuum formed over the plaster model.  After the plaster is cooled, it is cut off the model using a cast saw. The brace is then trimmed, smoothed, and straps are added for proper suspension.

Once the brace is completed, it will be shipped to you to fit on your pet. Need guidance on how to fit the orthosis to your pet’s leg? Our orthotics specialists are happy to walk you through the process over the phone or through Facetime. To schedule a fitting appointment or speak with one of our orthotics specialists, please call us at 888-253-0777.

Is my dog too heavy for an elbow orthosis?

There is no weight limit for any orthosis or prosthetic. Each brace is custom-made to fit your pet’s weight and size. If your pet has a conformational deformity or specific diagnosis that we need to be aware of, please speak to our orthotics specialist before fabrication.

Not sure if a elbow brace is right for your pet, call us at 888-253-0777 to speak with one of our orthotics specialists.

Can my dog wear a elbow brace on both legs?

Yes, if medically necessary a brace can be worn on both front legs. For dogs that need two elbow braces, you will need to take an impression of each leg and each brace is sold separately.

What materials are Walkin’ Pets Braces made of?

All Walkin’ Pets Braces are manufactured using the same materials used in the human field of orthotics and prosthetics. Each Walkin’ Pets Brace is constructed of medical-grade plastics, titanium, aluminum, touch fasteners, and carbon fiber.
