An OrthoPets Hobble Vest is used for medial shoulder instability. The OrthoPets Hobble Vest prevents the forelimbs from abducting or moving away from the patient’s midline. These injuries are typically treated in conjunction with restricted activity, arthoscopy, shockwave therapy, or laser therapy. The use of professional rehabilitation has been proven to significantly improve patient recovery.
Hobble Vest sizing is based on circumference of sternum and humeral cuff.
For the sternum: Measure at the deepest aspect of the chest, just behind the front legs.
For the humeral cuff: Measure just above the elbow joint.
If you have any questions about the sizing for your pet, please contact Veterinary Mobility Center prior to ordering.
