My Dog Needs Hock Surgery. What Should I Do?

My Dog Needs Hock Surgery. What Should I Do?

Generally, hock surgery in dogs isn't that common. However, it may be that your vet has told you your dog needs surgery for their hock injury.

Hock surgery may require pins, wires and/or screws if there's a fracture, or screws for a torn ligament. Applying a brace to the hock joint post-operatively can greatly improve surgical outcomes. Braces provide greater stability and support to the joint and facilitate physiotherapy/exercise resuming earlier.

It's worth discussing the different braces with your vet, as they can assess which brace will best help your dog.
