The Balto® Life supports the hip joint by exhorting bilateral compression on the hips.

It is an excellent alternative to surgery in cases where the dog cannot be operated. It is made of breathable and washable material that is both retentive and compressive.

The Balto® Life comes with 2 handles adjustable in length that can be hooked to the brace in case of need and that the owner can use to help the dog get into or out of a car or on stairs. The handles can be removed if they are not necessary.

Fitting Instructions

BALTO® Hip Displasia 1

Open all the straps, place the brace facing the dog’s rear legs and slip it on like a harness.

BALTO® Hip Displasia 2

Before closing the straps check that the disks are correctly positioned at the hips.

Balto® Hip Displasia 3

Now slide the straps inside the white rings and close them on themselves, tightening them strongly to ensure proper compression.

Balto® Hip Displasia 4

If the straps are too long you can shorten them, removing the Velcro end and cutting the excess material.

Balto® Hip Displasia 5

Then put the Velcro part back on and tighten the straps so that they close near the back and not around the brace. It is important for the brace to be very tightly closed.
