Some dog knee brace companies are telling dog patents that the only way to make a correct mold of a dogs’ leg is with a cast. Up until almost two years ago, that was mostly true. After a year of research, development and testing, our innovative company figured a few considerations about the out-dated casting requirements still used by everyone (but us).
Price: depending on whether your bet is honest, they will charge you $100 to as high as $600 for “anesthesia, lab work, x rays” etc.
Effectiveness: The first vet who made a cast of our dogs’ leg was highly recommended by western brace company in May 2013. That vet made a cast which was defective, unnatural, and incorrectly molded our dogs’ leg, which was 30 degrees outward during the casting appointment, and the brace which we paid for and we received never fit correctly. DOf with a CCL injury will often tilt their injured leg outwards from their body to mitigate pain.
Remakes of defective casts: Recently we were contacted by a customer who intended to use a competitors brace. That person paid for a casting kit, then paid the vet made the cast, then sent it overnight to my pets brace. Total charges exceeded $285. The computer brace then advised the customer that the cast was not correct, and told them to pay for another kit and another vet fee. This loving dog parent contacted us; since we have eliminated the dog knee cast process. Because of the delay, she had already endured from competitor brace and her former vet, we rushed her order, with no extra rush charge. Six days later, her dog was wearing our posh CCL dog leg brace, which fit beautifully.
With our patent pending, proprietary system, you need not worry about any of these problems. Just expect a truly custom fit like no other dog knee brace manufacturer can deliver, in half the time. Our company own by dog parents, not dog “owners.” Your dog is our customer, and our priority.
Making our measurements is very easy and takes less than 30 minutes with us on a video call: so easy that any lay person can take simple measurements we need, along with 4 pictures. If you do it yourself, you only need a soft measuring tape, watch our measuring video, and read our instructions we send [after payment]. We do not require that you or your vet make a cast of your dogs’ leg, because we make an accurate mold of your dogs’ leg without using a casting impression. You just send us the measurements and pictures, then, using technology and our software program, we use our proprietary system to convert that data into an extremely accurate mold of your dogs’ leg. It took over a year of research, development, and testing to launch our groundbreaking system. Since mid-2015, we eliminated casting with great results! See our testimonial page. Our posh brace fits better than any other company.
From there, we make the custom dog stifle brace for your dog which fits even better than what we used to make when we relied upon casts sent to us. As we have said: old fashioned, obsolete casts, even from vets, are often quite defective and do NOT reflect the correct topography and anatomy of you dogs’ leg provided by our software system.
We hope that you understand, but please do not ask us questions or specifics about our patent pending proprietary methods, processes, techniques, software, etc. as we will be unable to answer them. We closely guard that sensitive information from competitors [proxies for same] and outsiders. It took us a lot of time and capital investment to develop our unique system. We are happy to answer any general questions :)
