How to Choose a Walkin’ Dog Splint
Small animals frequently need to splint or brace injures to a lower limb. Choosing a splint is simple if you follow the diagram below to see which is right for your pet.
Where Does it Hurt?
First of all, identify where the dog’s injury is: front or rear paw, carpal, or hock?
The Bootie, Carpal, and Front dog splints provide stability and support for the lower front limbs of your pet (carpal and/or paw).
If support under the paw is needed, use the Walkin’ Bootie Dog Splint for injuries such as knuckling or toe injuries.
Use the Walkin’ Carpal Dog Splint for support around the carpal (wrist) joint for conditions such as carpal hyperextension, carpal joint instabilities, osteoarthritis of the carpal joint, or soft tissue injuries.
Consider the Walkin’ Front Dog Splint for stability and support of the lower front limbs (carpal and paw), for problems including neurological conditions (causing knuckling), carpal joint instabilities, polyarthritis, and soft tissue injuries.
If your pet needs support for the lower rear limbs (hock and/or paw), then consider the Bootie, Hock, and Rear dog splints for stability.
If your dog is knuckling or has toe injuries, then use the Walkin’ Bootie Dog Splint for support under the paw.
Use the Walkin’ Hock Dog Splint for support around the hock joint for injuries including tarsal hyperextension, tarsal joint instabilities, osteoarthritis of the tarsal joint, and soft tissue injuries.
Use the Walkin’ Rear Dog Splint for stability and support of the lower rear limbs (hock and paw). This can help address neurological conditions causing knuckling of the paw, tarsal joint instabilities, polyarthritis, and soft tissue injuries.
