It’s important to know the Hip-EEZ® Bridge is a TOOL TO AIDE in the treatment of mild to moderate Hip-Subluxation injuries. It will NOT cure hip injuries on its own. Working with your Veterinarian and Veterinary Rehabilitation Professional are key to using the Hip-EEZ® Bridge in a conservative management approach to any injury.

The Hip-EEZ® Bridge may not work for all pets. For those pets it does help, months of wear and exercise will be key to recovery as directed by a professional. Each Hip Bridge attachment is sold separately to fit the needs of your pet.

*Consult your Veterinarian or Veterinary Rehabilitation Professional before use.

How to choose the right size

The Hip-EEZ® Bridge is available in three sizes. Bridge attachment sizes correlate with the Hip-EEZ® Full Support or Amputee system you ordered. Please reference our sizing guide below to select the size for your pet. If you’re having trouble deciding on a size please contact one of our customer service reps for assistance at 1-888-253-0777.

Product Instructions

  1. Make sure your Hip-EEZ® Full Support or Amputee system is placed on your pet.
  2. Gently undo Velcro at top of leg panel on the side you’re planning on using the Hip-EEZ® Bridge. With the touch fastener facing out, line up the Hip-EEZ® Bridge directly over top the bony part of the hip. Making sure the bony part (Femoral Head) is resting in the open space of bridge. The bridge should be over top and on either side of the Femoral head. Hold bridge in place with one hand while pulling the leg panel taught and reattaching to rest of Hip-EEZ® support system. Then remove hand from bridge and gently press on outside of leg panel all around bridge to finish securing touch fastener.
  3. At this point your Hip Bridge should be in place over the joint and your leg panels secured. If you need to reposition the bridge, take your time and get it set correctly. We recommend you check it often if while your pet is active or gets up from laying down on that side. The goal is to allow your pet to move around with the bridge staying in place to offer support and compression.

Removing the Hip-EEZ® Bridge
Simply detach the Hip-EEZ® Bridge from leg panel once whole system is removed from pet.

Professional Use

The Hip-EEZ® Bridge is specially designed to aid in the conservative treatment of mild to moderate Hip Sub-Luxations. This product was designed specifically for those pets who may be suffering from multiple deficits and/or not good surgical candidates. The idea of the Hip-EEZ® Bridge is it compresses down and in on the Femoral head when placed correctly and the leg panel is secured tightly. This compression along with a specific Rehabilitation program ideally will allow muscle strengthening and recovery while keeping the hip from sub-luxating. This concept will take months of strengthening exercises while wearing the Hip-EEZ® Bridge. Of course this will not work for all cases and in the situation of a full Hip Luxation. It’s not a replacement to surgery for those pets who would benefit from a surgical procedure. The Hip-EEZ® Bridge is a possible solution for those pets we see who surgery is not a viable option.

I’ve successfully used the Hip-EEZ® Bridge in a few cases and wanted to share a product I handmade the first go round to help a patient named Nuka. I’m hoping to continue to collect data and feedback from other professionals. Working together as a Veterinary community to create, provide and improve products which aid in healing our patients. I can only hope these products are able to help your patients as well. Please reach out to us and share your thoughts and help us continue to collect more case studies on using the Hip-EEZ® Bridge with the Hip-EEZ® systems. We want your help in making sure our products meet the needs and approval of our fellow pet lovers.
