When using on areas containing open wounds, we recommend that a sterile barrier be used between the skin and donut to keep clean. Something like an Idoban drape may work. Please seek the advice of your Veterinarian when planning this out. Each Hip Donut attachment is sold separately to fit the needs of your pet.

*Consult your Veterinarian or Veterinary Rehabilitation Professional before use.

Assembly & Usage Instructions

  1. Make sure your Hip-EEZ® Full Support or Amputee system is placed on your pet.
  2. Gently undo touch fastener at top of leg panel on the side you’re planning on using the Hip-EEZ® Donut. With the Velcro facing out, line up the Hip-EEZ® Donut directly over the bony part of the hip. Making sure it’s in the center of Hip-EEZ® Donut. Hold donut in place with one hand while pulling the leg panel taught and reattaching to rest of Hip-EEZ® support system. Then remove hand from donut and gently press on outside of leg panel all around donut to finish securing.
  3. At this point your Hip-EEZ® Donut should be in place over the joint and your leg panels secured. If you need to reposition the donut, take your time and get it set correctly. We recommend you check it often if your pet moves around a lot while laying down on that side. The goal is to have your pet lay on the donut which will alleviate pressure directly to the joint.

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

Professional Use

The Hip-EEZ® Donut is specially designed to aid in the treatment and/or prevention of pressure sores. Over the years I know we’ve all struggled with finding a donut solution that will stay in place to help these patients. From firsthand experience, I know how devastating pressure sores can be to an elderly pet. So I designed the Hip Donut to stay in place and be easy to use. I do recommend using an Idoban drape with patients that have open wounds. This will help keep the area sterile and prevent the medical grade foam from rubbing on new developing skin.

As with any new product, continuing to collect data and feedback from professionals is key. Working together as a Veterinary community to create, provide and improve products which aide 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® Donut with the Hip-EEZ® systems. We want your help in making sure our products meet the needs and approval of our fellow pet lovers.
