Knee/ACL Injury

  • Does Your Dog Have a Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury?
  • Is Surgery the Right Choice for Your Beloved Dog?

Maybe. It depends. Every dog, injury, and circumstance is different. At the Canine Rehabilitation & Integrative Veterinary Center we perform a comprehensive evaluation and consultation to help you make the best choice for your pet and your life.

A Custom Made Biomechanically Correct Stifle(Knee) Brace May Be the Best Choice for Your Dog.

At the Canine Rehabilitation & Integrative Veterinary Center we have been providing custom fabricated devices from OrthoPets Center for Orthotics and Prosthetics for more than 7 years. We have successfully fitted over 500 dogs with custom stifle braces/orthosis. Learn more Orthopets at

  • Allows pet to enjoy normal activities, normal knee(stifle) joint range of motion, and supports normal muscle mass development
  • Waterproof
  • Innovative cruciate/knee brace design providing increased support and comfort to your dog’s leg
  • Advanced biomechanics creating “force coupling” to stabilize your dog’s ACL injury or tear
  • Polycentric mechanical hinges replicate the complex motion of your dog’s knee (stifle) joint
  • Tibial control strap restricts cranial tibial thrust
  • Researched and tested (ACORN Stifle Study, CSU Stifle Study)

Call us to find out if a custom stifle brace is right for your dog

Research studies at the University of Louisville showed stifle joint biomechanics were improved following orthosis implementation, compared with biomechanics of the CrCL-deficient stifle joint. Orthosis hinge stiffness influenced stifle joint biomechanics. An orthosis may be a viable option to stabilize a CrCL-deficient canine stifle joint.
