3 Best Carpal Hyperextension Braces for Dogs

My Dog Charlie has Hyperextension of the Carpal Ligament, While it is not Completely Collapsed Yet, I Think He's Putting Too Much Pressure on the Paw. What Would You Recommend?

It sounds like Charlie needs as much support as he can get along his ligaments, so that he doesn’t increase the chance of a complete carpal hyperextension rupture or collapse.

3 Carpal Hyperextension Braces for Dogs

In terms of carpal splints and supports for your dog Charlie, there are a couple of options:

1. A Rigid Carpal Splint (firm support) - Scandi Grade 3

Scandi Orthopedic’s Grade 3 is a rigid carpal support to immobilise your dog's carpal joint. This is excellent for medium to severe carpal injuries, carpal weakness, sprains, moderate arthritis or when conservative management is the recommended treatment.

This carpal splint provides lateral and medial support and prevents hyper-extension. The outer part of this splint is made from thermoplastic, which you put into boiled water to shape. This splint is, therefore, fantastic in terms of fit, as exact fit means faster healing. Inside the splint are two neoprene layers, making this splint very comfortable and can be worn 24/7.

  • Immobilises your dog's carpal joint 
  • Excellent at reducing carpal hyperextension and joint deviation
  • Immobilises the carpal joint - prevents carpal joint movement
  • Provides rigid lateral and medial carpal support
  • 3mm Neoprene (one layer)
