  • Question Will the orthosis be heavy or uncomfortable for my dog to wear?

    The materials chosen to make the orthosis for your dog will match your dog’s size and weight, balancing the pet’s comfort with durability. The orthosis does possess some weight, but we make every effort to suit it proportionately to the dog’s size.
