"I was a believer by the end of the first week. Judging from the videos, Jaxon's condition is much more mild. However, I would limit his activity because taking him for long walks would result in limping and I felt I was hurting him. He would only get one or two short (30 mins) walks per week. Wearing his "magic coat", we walked a couple of miles a day, and he did great! That's significant."
"Jasper is our 6 1/2 year old chocolate lab (our baby) who was born with congenital hip dysplasia which led to arthritis early on. He was slow moving and slept a lot. He requires anti-inflammatory and pain medication to help lessen symptoms. Prior to using the K-9 Align vest, Jasper was only able to walk about 5-10 minutes and had to stop and rest during this time. With consistent use of the vest for about 10 minutes while walking, he was able to double the distance and time he walked comfortably. He's able to walk about 10-15 minutes without stopping now and appears stronger. We're continuing use of the vest to maintain the progress. The vest seems to support and stabilize his hips. His legs seems to be a little stronger as well. He's more vibrant and playful too!!!"
The K9 HipLign™ is a first-to-market wearable therapy for canine hip dysplasia.
The K9 HipLign™ is the first-to-market wearable therapy to mitigate canine hip dysplasia symptoms and to delay the onset of symptoms if used early by at-risk breeds. It is both an affordable, non-invasive alternative as well as adjunct to other forms of hip dysplasia treatments, including surgery, medication, and physical therapy/rehabilitation.
The garment does not constrict movement as braces do and is not a compression device. Instead, it is comprised of a form fitting, 4-way stretch material which provides sensory input through the dog's trunk as they stand and move, promoting more correct posture. In addition, there are 4 elastic straps which provide a balanced resistance to the muscles surrounding the dog's core and hips which will over time help to build musculature. This, in turn, can help provide more dynamic stability to the hips, which can reduce friction and pain associated with hip dysplasia.
The K9 HipLign is an innovative solution to a common, universal problem.
