episode 91: Orthotic Braces for Tripawds: Why a Custom Fit is Best

Tripawds Podcast Episode #91: Thinking of getting a brace your Tripawd? Find out why custom orthotics are best, and why it's important to consult with your vet first, on this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio. Recorded on December 19, 2019.

As an amputee himself, Ben Blecha understands the importance of comfort and function for prosthetics and orthotic devices. But when it comes to dogs, you can't just ask them how they feel to determine a perfect fit. That's why he founded Hero Braces in 2005, to help provide limb stability for dogs who need it. Whether used as an alternative to surgery, or to help provide support when missing a limb, custom orthotic braces are the best solution. Listen to Rene's discussion with Ben to find out why.
