About DogLeggs' Shoulder Stabilisation Support

The DogLeggs' Shoulder Stabilisation Support reduces front leg splay or abduction of the forelimbs and limits shoulder extension and flexion. It is easy to apply and very comfortable for your pet, as such, it can be worn continuously for several months with no to minimal irritation. The system is comprised of two sleeves: one for each leg and chest straps. The sleeves attach to each other over the back suspending the elbow cuffs. The chest straps act to secure the device and hobble the front legs. More severe MSI cases may need additional hobble straps at the lower leg.

Helps to support the shoulder and elbow joints and relieve pain associated with:

  • Medial Shoulder Instability (MSI) or Syndrome (MSS) in small to medium dogs
  • Support for certain shoulder luxation and osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder ligament strains and sprains and joint laxity (looseness)

All Measurements must be taken with your dog in STANDING. Please fill in the Measurement Form in the above 'Request Now' button  so we can help you with your order.

Use a soft measuring tape (or piece of string) to: 

#1. Measure from the point of the elbow on the left, up over the shoulders and to the point of the elbow on the right. 

#2. Measure around your dog's left leg at the point of the elbow (at the widest point). Now the right leg.

#3. Measure around the dog’s left leg halfway between the elbow and top of paw for both the left and right front leg. 

#4. Measure the distance from the back of your dog's paw-pad (or the floor) to the elbow. If this measurement is more than 6 inches, we will need to make a custom order for you, please contact us.

#5. Provide your dog's breed and weight.

For Large breed dogs, custom order is available. If measurement #4 is more than 6 inches, Please contact us. 

How to fit

A veterinary prescription is required to order this product. We recommend that the veterinary professional apply the product initially.

  1. Apply the DogLeggs with your dog standing or supported in standing. Slide the sleeves onto your dog and secure together over the shoulders.
  2. The inside cuff should sit at the crease of the elbow and the elbow cuffs should be loose when standing.
  3. Add the first chest strap across the front to keep the Dogleggs in position and help to provide some stabilisation to the legs sliding outwards.
  4. Add the second chest strap behind the elbows. This provides more support and prevents sideways movement.

Safety and Success:

We recommend introducing your dog to the shoulder support in short blocks of time until they are used to wearing it. Supervise your pet during use and reward with treats.

If both chest straps limit the forward/ backward movement of your dog walking (particularly in small dogs with severe shoulder instability), loosen the strap or remove one as you slowly introduce the support system for you pet.

More severe MSI cases may need additional hobble straps at the lower leg. Please contact us for more information.
