For legs, not teeth

First up is Go Hero Go stifle braces (tagline: For legs, not teeth) which borrow concepts from human knee braces and adapt them to a dog's unique way of walking. They are designed specifically for dogs with CCL or ACL tears. Dogs using a stifle brace are able to climb stairs paw over paw, can bear weght on the affected leg, walk with less pain and return to their regular, active lives.
