The Balto Body Lift Brace is a one piece back brace with handles, designed for dogs with age or disease-related motor difficulties. This brace supports and braces the spinal column whilst lifting, so is suitable for dogs with back and spinal injuries. The two (removable) rigid splints, contained in the two side pockets, serve to both stabilize the brace during use, as well as to compress the proximal area of the spinal column in cases of disease in this area, holding it in traction (for example, neurological diseases). Both the handle straps and the splints can be removed.

Uses:

  • Dogs that have difficulty walking, as a result of trauma, disease or paralysis
  • Dogs with motor difficulties
  • Spinal column issues.
  • The two (removable) rigid splints, contained in the two side pockets, serve to both stabilise the brace during use, as well as to compress the proximal area of the spinal column in cases of disease in this area, holding it in traction (for example, neurological diseases).
