When dogs suffer injuries in the lower leg joints such as from the hock joints, there are most often traumatic causes behind why they have occurred. In connection with these complex joints being injured, ligaments are often affected in some way. Either through rupture, bursting or stretching. The healing period is long and the dog needs a support around the joint so that it does not worsen the injury during the healing period. A well-adapted joint protector that repels water is important as the joint protector comes near the ground and easily becomes wet. A wet joint protector cools down the joint and impairs the healing process.

The KRUUSE Rehab Hock Protectors are manufactured of Neoprene and are waterproof. Everything on the inside of the joint protector remains dry even under extremely poor weather conditions. The hock protector is placed with the tip of the hock out through the opening in the protector and then stretched around the leg above and under the joint.
