The Balto® Life helps dogs suffering from hip dysplasia, reducing pain by exerting bilateral compression on the hips.
It is effective for all degrees of dysplasia including degree E (the most severe). It is also used for other pathologies (hip arthrosis for example). 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.
