    Hello! We have an11 year old Pyrenees and are thinking of getting a hip brace for her. Has anybody tried this certain brace? Is there a knee and hip support brace out there? Thank you so much for any advice.

    from reading your other post, you need to get her into the vet. it could simply be old age (arthritis or other issues), a spinal issue or pinched nerve, or hip dysplasia or similar issue. Once you have figured out the cause, then you can look for ways to relieve the symptoms

    I agree with Dainerra! Hip arthritis is actually very manageable with different combinations of pain meds (most of which are very affordable and easy to give). A vet would be able to give a good evaluation to further pinpoint the issue with a diagnosis.
