Occasionally, some pets may not be able to return to full function or they may develop a progressive debilitating condition such as Degenerative Myelopathy. The goal of assistive devices is to decrease pain, support injured limbs, improve mobility, and help animals maintain happy and active lives.
An orthotic is a brace or a splint used to support or immobilize a specific joint or skeletal part. Orthotics can be used to encourage healing or correct a deformity.
Carts can be used if a pet has paralysis or severe weakness requiring support to walk.
There are many options to choose the right assistive device for your pet and it can be overwhelming. At CVR, we will assist in getting the right measurements to assure a proper fit for your pet's needs, and help you select the right product.
