My Dog Needs Hock Surgery. What Should I Do?

Generally, hock surgery in dogs is not that common. However, it may be that your vet has told you your dog needs surgery for its hock injury.

Hock surgery may require pins, wires and/or screws if there is a fracture or screws for a torn ligament. Applying a brace to the hock joint post-operatively can greatly improve surgical outcomes, providing greater stability and support to the joint and facilitating physiotherapy/exercise to resume earlier. It is worth discussing the different braces with your vet, as they can assess which brace will best help your dog.
