The MuttKnee Brace began back in 2002 out of necessity to help our then eight-year-old dog, Muttley. She injured her knee while running around on the snow and ice. At the time of her injury, the cost of a vet's visit and the suggested knee surgery was completely beyond our budget. She could barely walk and couldn't run, and if she did, her injured leg just dragged and trembled as she moved. She tried to keep up with the pack, but it was sad watching her shaky attempts. We felt we had to help her however we could, so we got creative and began designing a brace similar to supportive braces for human knees.
Give your dog the ability to run with the pack again — find reprieve in our knee brace for dogs!
Shortly after getting her brace, Muttley was running with the pack again. It took a couple of months of her wearing the brace when she went outside, but she quickly began walking with the injured leg supporting her weight again. She ran as if she had never been injured until 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 took the help of family, friends, neighbors, and local vets referring us to owners of injured dogs for us to develop the MuttKnee Brace that is now available. We have now been able to help almost 10,000 dogs in 62 countries improve the quality of their lives. We have been able to help all sizes from 3.5 lbs. to 230 lbs. and every size in between.
