Finally, there's a little help out there for dogs in the early stages of degenerative neurological disease who "knuckle," or walk on the tops of their hind paws. This adjustable, lightweight boot-and-wrap combination helps to reduce knuckling by stabilizing the tarsal/hock flexion and digital extension, or in plain English, by gently helping the dog place his or her rear feet. The Dorsi-Flex Assist is easy to put on and take off, and it cleans easily by rinsing in warm water. Can be used on both back feet simultaneously.
DO NOT USE THIS DEVICE ON DOGS WITH SEVERE NEUROLOGICAL IMPAIRMENTS.
Perfect for pets who are: suffering from degenerative myelopathy, hip dysplasia, arthritis, IVDD, or old age; weak in the rear legs.
