Fitting / Sizing Issues

If you are having any fitting/sizing issues, please reach out to consult with a KVP Orthotics representative. Brace size exchanges and/or refunds will only be honoured if, during the initial fitting, the brace is determined to be a poor fit, and/or the brace is affecting the health or healing of the patient, and/or there is a manufacturer's defect.

Recommendations for Use

  • During the period of restraint, it is advisable not to leave the dog alone for too long, because it might try to remove the brace by biting or scratching it.
  • Be careful of the band when applying the brace to a male dog. When wrapping the band around the pelvis, pass the band in front of foreskin in order to avoid compressing the urethra.
