CCL(ACL) Braces and Achilles Braces
 
Has your dog been diagnosed with a cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) tear or an Achilles tear? Are you looking for an alternative to surgery or are you concerned about pre or post-operative instability? Mayo Veterinary Services now offers CCL and Achilles braces braces for dogs 40-120#.
 
These braces are not a curative solution for CCL ruptures. However, not all dogs are good candidates for surgery. If your dog poses a high anesthetic risk (due to old age or a medical issue) or if you are unable to afford surgery, a CCL brace can provide additional stability to the injured knee.
 
Fitting the brace to your dog's knee takes approximately 45 minutes. Mayo Veterinary Services offers both in-home and in-clinic fittings. We also offer shipping anywhere in the United States if you are not located in the Puget Sound area.  

We offer two different brace designs.
 
The newest brace design is offered in four convenient sizes: Small (25-40#), Medium (40-55#), Large (55-95#), and X-Large (95-120#). We are currently offering the older design at a discounted rate.
