The History of the MuttKnee Brace
The MuttKnee Brace began back in 2002, out of necessity and our love of our then 8 year old dog, Muttley.
She injured her knee running around on the snow and ice. At the time of her injury, the cost of a vet’s visit
and then the suggested surgery on her knee was completely beyond our budget.
She could barely walk and couldn't run, and if she did, her injured leg just drug and trembled as she moved.
She tried to keep up with the other 3 dogs but it was sad watching her shaky attempts.
We felt we had to help her, however we could. That was the beginning of the MuttKnee Brace.
We got creative and began designing a brace similar to supportive braces for human knees.
Within a couple of hours, Muttley was running with the pack with her new knee brace.
It took a couple of months of her wearing the brace when she went outside,
but she began walking with the injured leg supporting her weight again.
She ran as if she had never been injured til she crossed the Rainbow Bridge at the ripe age of 16.
There have been many changes, revisions and improvements made to the MuttKnee Brace since Muttley's first brace.
It has taken the help of family, friends and neighbors referring us to owners of injured dogs
for us to develop the MuttKnee Brace that is now available.
We know that it has helped our dogs and the other dogs that have used the brace consistently.
Our goal is to help dogs - one knee at a time- by making an affordable, supportive and comfortable canine knee brace.
We take an enormous pride in creating the MuttKnee Brace, and hope that your dog will benefit
from the use of the MuttKnee Brace as our dog friends have.
We want to help as many dogs as possible, so for each MuttKnee Brace purchased, $5 (USD) is donated
to animal rescue organizations including the organizations listed on our contact page.
