Because we craft our dog knee brace from high-quality and lasting neoprene fabric, it can be worn in the water. Neoprene is a waterproof fabric that is most commonly used in wetsuits and fishing waders.
Because there are gas bubbles within the neoprene fabric it’s a great insulator and acts as a barrier between your pup and the water.
Q: Will the neoprene dog knee brace rub and cause sores?
A: Because each dog knee brace it custom-made, it moves and stretches with your dog so there is no reason it should move around and rub creating sores. Paired with the waterproof neoprene, water is unable to make contact keeping the dog’s knee brace in place so they can continue to heal while being active.
Q: What should I do if the dog knee brace does get wet?
A: our dog knee braces are made from durable neoprene so they are waterproof even as your dog tromps around in the water. The entire brace is a part of the closed-cell foam which will not absorb water or harbor bacteria.
If the dog knee brace does get dirty, it’s very simple to clean. When your dog is resting and not in the brace, wipe it clean with a mild soap and warm water.
