My dog is on high dose steroids and has lost hair and was at risk of getting pressure injuries on his hocks. These protectors were perfect to prevent further pressure injury, although I did have to put a thin sock underneath just to ensure full coverage

Happy with purchase.

I also have a 17 year old dog who responded beautifully to the Hock Support. Wearing it doesn't faze him at all and it provided immediate relief and support.

Marcello Porcu (Illewong, AU)
Ordered this for a customer who's 17yo dog had some hock instability.

It took the dog approx 1 week of getting used to the support from the hock protector, but after this period he learnt to rely on it and has been walking very well since.

Wearing the hock protector has reduced the ROM in that joint a little, but it is greatly outweighed by the stability it has provided, helping him be more confident in his gait and enrich his life.
