We Know What Your Dog And You're Going Through. We've Been There Too; Looking For Brace For Dog, Our Senior Golden. See The Success We've Had With Our Own Dog Wearing A Posh Brace, Conservative Management, Nutritional Supplements, And NO Surgery. This Is Our Experience With A Severe CCL And Meniscus Injury On Our Beloved Golden Child, Pasha, In The Spring Of 2013.
The Name Of Our Company, "Posh," Is Derived From One Of Pashas' Many Nicknames. It Does Not Connote Elegant Or Stylishly Luxurious, Although Our Posh Brace Is The Best Looking Custom Dog Knee Brace On The Market.

Compared To CCL Surgery For A Torn ACL In Dogs, A Custom Dog Knee Brace Is An Affordable And Painless Solution That Is Free Of Any Risks Presented By Dog Knee Surgery. Our Own Dog Made A Full Recovery From A Complete Rupture Of Her Cruciate Ligament With A Custom Posh Brace For Dog. We Had Learned The Facts About Dog Knee Surgery. We Refused To Put Our
Beloved Dog Through All This:
- Serious Pain And Suffering
- Being Unable To Enjoy The Remainder of Her life At 11 Years Old
- Months Of Rehab
- Putting Pasha Into A Crate For Many Weeks While Her Left Leg Tried To Heal From The Broader Injury Caused By CCL Surgery
- (TPLO). Dogs, Like People, Can be Claustrophobic
- Dealing With Surgical Complications: Infections, Drug Reactions, Bone Cancer (There Have Been TWO Recalls of TPLO
- Implants For Causing Osteosarcoma)
- 70% + Chance The Surgery Would Cause A Bilateral Injury
We Had Learned That Dog CCL Knee Braces Worked As Well As Human ACL Knee Braces - So WHY: Would We Put Our Child Through the Hell Of Cruciate Surgery? It Wasn't About The $5,000 They Wanted For The TPLO Surgery - It Was About The Quality Of Her Life. Like A Litany For 3 Months In The Summer Of 2013, Every Day We Said "Thank God We Never Got The Horrible Surgery." We Healed Our Severely Injured Pasha With Her Brace For Dogs. Pasha Started Having Fun Again In A Few Days, & Recovered, In 7 Months.
The Crux Of The Issue Of Torn CCL In Dogs Is This:
The Small Cruciate Ligament Between The Femur And Tibia Helps To Hold The Bones In The Correct Alignment. When The Cruciate Ligament Is Partially Or Fully Torn, It Allows The Painful, Malaligned, Forward Movement Of The Tibia, When The Knee Is Bent, Or Load Bearing. This Is Called "Tibial Thrust."
A Bio-mechanically Correct Custom Posh Dog Knee Brace Provides Immediate Relief For Your Dog With A Canine Knee Injury, By Globally Stabilizing Your Dogs' Injured Knee, And Correctly Aligning The Femur, Tibia And Knee Structure. A Good Dog Leg Brace Does This.
The Posh Brace Actively Suppresses The "Tibial Thrust" By Holding The Tibial Bone In Correct Alignment & Allows Your Dog To Exercise & Walk Again. See Numerous Detailed Stories Of Our Customers On Our Successes Page
Many Dog Parents Do Not Want To Get Dog Knee Surgery On Their Dog.
Here's Only Some Of The Reasons People Get A Custom Dog Leg Brace:
A large percentage of Dogs who suffer torn CCL (ACL) to their stifle (knee) ligaments are not good candidates for surgery. A custom Dog leg brace is an effective alternative and much better option for torn ACL in Dogs than ACL surgery, including Dogs and families who have these issues:
- AGE: Their Dog is elderly and its' quality of life would be compromised by major surgery.
- HEALTH: Their Dog has other medical issues which would endanger the Dog in a surgical environment.
- HYPERACTIVITY: Their Dog may be too hyper or rambunctious to recover from surgery without compromising the procedure.
- COSTS: The family may not be able to afford a surgery & post-op care costing $3,000 - $6,000 with no guarantees that CCL surgery will actually work.
- HOLISTIC CARE: Many people are waking up to the many dangers of profit-driven allopathic "medicine" both for themselves, and their Animal family members.

Erin - Mom Of Ellie Bae, 6 Year Old Staffordshire Terrier - Texas
My vet was also really impressed with the quality of Beas ccl knee brace, and I'm hoping that she will recommend this less invasive alternative for ccl surgery to more people now that she has seen our success. She wrote down all the info about your company and was very happy to hear that I had such a good experience. Thank you so much for all of your help - every step of the process felt very personal and I felt confident that we were making the right choice from day one!".
