On June 2, 2009 we posted an article entitled “Dog Brace for Injured Stifle” that has since received a lot of attention from pet owners interested in finding cost-effective care for their k-9.
Here are a few sources for anyone looking for information and/or someone to help their pooch:
Handicapped Pets – Amherst, New Hampshire USA: www.handicappedpets.com
K-9 Orthotics – Beaver Bank, Nova Scotia Canada: www.k-9orthotics.com
OrthoPets – Denver, Colorado USA: www.OrthoPets.com
After discovering that our Tamarack™ Flexure Joints™ were being used not only for human patients, but K-9’s and other animals as well, we decided to do our homework and share this information with fellow pet-owners. We’re sure there are more pet orthotic & prosthetic clinics around the USA and abroad, but the companies mentioned above appear to be the largest. Cost-effective, high quality orthotic & prosthetic devices are available to help restore a pet’s mobility.
We’d like to hear from pet owners who have found success with orthotic or prosthetic care for their pet. If you have a story to share, we’ll feature it on Inside Tamarack. Pictures are appreciated too.
