If so, what kind of brace would you suggest? So far, He is just resting for the past 3 weeks with little exercise. It seems to get better with rest, then a short walk and his left leg is sore again. He is in very good shape as he exercised every day of his life until recently.

Since it is strained, the only things you can do are put an ace bandage around his leg if you want to walk him, then take it off and cover an ice pack with a paper towel and keep it on his leg for a bit.

If your dog has early aging issues, give him a glucosamine chondriatin supplement.

The leg will still strain from time to time but within a year it will heal on its own.

This will be more visible in old age as with people, so it may need some tlc once in a while.
