Kaal Owner Testimonial
Kaal, the dobermann, 2019, Cryotherapy brace with compression.
6 year old, Male Doberman
I am a student at the University of Aix Marseille and for nearly two years I have owned Kaal. We adopted him after finding him abandoned in a kennel in the snow.
I noticed that for a few days he was hesitant to get on the couch, he always chose the right leg to jump.
So I went to see a veterinarian in Marseille who diagnosed a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left leg, who recommended surgery by a vet specialist in orthopaedic surgery.
The surgeon who performed the surgery on Kaal offered me a cryotherapy brace with compression, immediately postoperatively.
The braceis to be placed 10 minutes, 3 times a day for 7 days on the operated knee of my dog. After the first day of use, I realise that my dog is enjoying his 10-minute cold therapy. Once it was put on, my dog would immediately go and rest without trying to remove it or even to touch it.
Thanks to the brace, the swelling due to the surgery quickly reduced and my dog became happy and wanted to play with me again.

Kaal still suffers from residual lameness on the operated limb, an ultrasound reveals quadriceps tendinitis consecutive to the surgical procedure chosen to treat his CCL rupture. (TPLO)
The surgeon recommends to continue to use the cryotherapy brace with compression in the same way but for 3 weeks this time.
