Hey Everyone,

I was so excited that i had to get on here and share it with all of you!  Today i took Buddy to his favorite dog park that we used to always go to.  I have not taken him since before the injury, so it has been quite a while.  It is a big park in the forest preserve and has lots of open space to play and socialize with other dogs.  I was a little worried that it would be too much for him but decided he was doing well and it was time. I had his brace on him so he had the extra support.  It was great to see him so happy again.  I kept an eye out and did not let him do too much running but we went on a long walk around and he did do some playing with the other dogs.  He almost looked like his old self again and was not limping much at all.  I got so many questions from people at the park regarding the brace on Buddy.  I told them all about it and our experience and a few people even said that there dog had a tear before and they did not know about this at all.  So not only am i helping people on this blog but even just going out around other dog lover’s with the brace on is getting the word out.  I am so thankful that i found Woundwear and this brace!


Kind Regards,

    Does Buddy wear the brace all of the time? We are trying to decide what to do for our Lil. Did he heal and that you only put the brace on him occasionally? Thank you for your help.

      Dear Bonnie,

      Yes, Buddy wore his brace all of the time but we would give him little breaks every 48 hours when we could watch him. He wore the brace for 7 weeks and then he was bearing weight on his own. He is is now wearing the brace only for long walks and when we take him to the park to play. I hope that helps and sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

    So thankful for some incite into this new ordeal with our 2 yr old pit bull. I want to try the brace and have been to the website, but I am a little intimidated with taking the measurements correctly. Did your vet help with the process at all? Thank you for sharing your story.
