DogLeggs' Hock Sock
Indications for use include:
Area of Coverage: From the top of the paw to 2" above the point of the hock (adjustments are made to the proportions of the animal)
The DogLeggs' Hock Sock provides coverage, padding and protection for the hock. Each DogLeggs' Hock Sock is made to the specific measurements of the animal allowing for an intimate fit. This intimate fit is imperative for comfort, proper product function and to prevent migration of the product. It is safe to use for animals with compromised immune systems or fragile skin. Use of this product can speed recovery of wounds and protects the area from additional trauma or self-mutilation. Animals with osteoarthritis of the hock can benefit as well as the material reflects the body's heat back to the joint, improving comfort and mobility.
Please note: This product is a coverage solution only; it does not provide support to the hock. Please see the DogLeggs' Tarsal Support for a supportive solution.
Product Construction: The DogLeggs' Hock Sock is constructed from a 3-dimensional fleece-faced, highly breathable, 4-way stretch textile with wicking properties. It allows air to circulate while keeping the joint warm. It contains padding to protect bony prominences. Hook and loop fastening is used to secure the product. The product is machine washable.
Standard Length Adjustable DogLeggs for coverage of the elbows.
Full Length Adjustable DogLeggs for coverage of the elbows and forelimbs (elbow to top of paw).
DogLeggs' Front Leg Wrap for coverage between the top of the paw and the middle of the radius/ulna (portion of leg between the top of the paw and the elbow.)
Hock Sock and Lick Granuloma:
I just wanted to say we have been dealing with the issue of the lick granuloma for over a month now. Kodiak has been wearing the Hock Sock for about a week and a half - went back to the vet today (after 3 bouts of antibiotics) the vet was amazed at how good it looked. It has healed. We now have to wean him off the sock so he will not go back to that spot of licking but thank you so much. It was/is a complete success.
