What Makes the SureFit® Calculator the Best Choice?

SureFit® Guarantee: we guarantee the perfect size, or we’ll pay your return shipping costs if an exchange is needed. That way there’s no doubt your pet will get the perfect fit.

We highly recommend using our SureFit® Calculator as it ensures the perfect custom fit for your pet. It requires a couple measurements, but only so we can provide your pet with the very best experience.

We recognize this takes a few minutes of your time, but those minutes are worth the happiness your pet will experience once they try out their wheelchair for the first time. Our wheelchairs have already helped more than 81,000 other pets. Let’s make that 81,001!

Other companies simply have you select a wheelchair based on weight, but that often results in a poor fit. Why? A 30 lb bulldog has a very different body type from a 30 lb corgi, but those companies will provide both with the same wheelchair.

If you order a splint and it is marked with “L” it refers to the size (large).

How to Choose the Right Size

The Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splints come in a range of sizes to fit your pet. The sizes range from X-Small to X-Large to make sure most breeds are covered. All splints come with the ability to adjust angle and width. Adjustable straps also add to this splint’s ability to fit multiple pets. Splints will not be effective if they are too loose or too tight. Foam insert is designed to fit at splint’s widest adjustments, if adjusted to a narrower setting foam lining may be trimmed to fit.

Please keep in mind that Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splints are designed to support the lower part of the rear OR front leg. They will not stabilize the knee on the rear leg or the elbow on the front leg. The Walkin’ Fit Splint is designed for Professional Use Only and needs to be fitted by a Veterinary Professional.

IMPORTANT: Please reference the appropriate sizing guide when measuring your pet. The sizing recommendations to best fit your pet may vary based on FRONT or REAR leg intended usage.

If you have a cat and are interested in these splints, you will need to order the X Small, depending on the size of your cat. See chart.

It is recommended that you measure the dog in a standing position, if possible.

For most FRONT leg use, the splint angle is set on the second notch at a 10-degree angle.

For most REAR leg use, the splint should be set on the middle notch or 30-degree angle, unless otherwise recommended by your Veterinarian.

Assembly & Usage Instructions

How to Fit Splint to Your Pet

The Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splint provides you the ability to change the joint angle and width of the splint. It’s important to remember the first adjustment made MUST be the angle.

Step One: Undo all Velcro straps so you can easily test fit the splint as you go along. It’s best to Velcro the straps to themselves off to one side.

Step Two: Slightly loosen both black knobs on either side of the splint to adjust the angle. The splint adjusts in 10-degree increments. Most pet’s natural REAR hock angle will likely be on the middle notch, marked 30 degrees, which is about 135 degrees. Most pet’s natural FRONT carpal joint angle will likely be on the second notch marked 10-degree angle, which is about 170 to 180 degrees. Again, every pet’s confirmation will vary. Set the splint joint angle to best fit your pet’s natural stance referencing the non-splint leg if needed. Retighten the black knobs to secure once the angle has been adjusted.

Step Three: Test fit the splint to check angle and width.

Step Four: If you need to widen the splint, follow instructions. If the splint width does not need to be adjusted, proceed to step six.

Step Five: To widen the splint, you want to make small, even adjustments on each screw starting from the top and work your way down the splint so it widens evenly. Use the Allen key provided to do so. Loosen each screw slightly, the splint will widen the more you loosen the screws.

Step Six: Test fit splint on your pet until the width is right. Once required width is set, hold splint at new width while you slightly tighten screws to secure.

Step Seven: Now that your splint is all set and adjusted for your pet, you can secure straps.

Step Eight: Place leg in splint. Starting at the bottom with the paw, Velcro all straps to secure splint on the leg. Check for any areas of rubbing or incorrect fit. The leg should fit snugly in the splint without rubbing or areas of skin hanging over or pinched in the splint. If you’re now ready to go, reference the usage tab for instructions on how to slowly get your pet moving in the splint. If you’re having trouble fitting the splint, please contact one of our customer service representatives.

How to Introduce a Splint to Your Pet

It’s important to remember that any splint placed on a pet’s foot will need to be removed at bedtime, and should be removed for at least an hour during the day to allow the foot to breathe.

When introducing a new splint to a pet, it’s important to start slowly. Positive reinforcement methods, using praise, treats, or toys should always be used in association with the splint. The splint will initially make the pet walk “funny” or maybe not want to walk at all. Using positive reinforcement to encourage walking is always the best approach.

Day One: Place splint on pet for 10-15 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these short sessions 3 to 4 times during Day One. Once the splint is removed, look for any areas of irritation or rubbing on the pet’s skin that may have been caused by the splint. If you notice an area of rubbing, please consult one of our customer service representatives for fitting assistance and your Veterinarian with any medical concerns. It’s more important to make sure the pet is comfortable with the splint and the fit is correct tan to rush the process. Continue with these short sessions until your dog adjusts. If you are concerned that the fit isn’t correct, please contact our customer service department or consult with your Veterinarian.

Day Two: If your pet is having a hard time adjusting to wearing the splint, continue with the short 10-15 minute sessions, as described in Day One. If your pet seems to be walking a little better and is getting used to the splint, then it’s time to increase the session length a bit.

Place splint on for 15-30 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these sessions 3 to 4 times during Day Two. Again, look for any signs of discomfort, and respond accordingly.

Day Three: If your pet is still having a hard time, continue with the short 10-15 minute sessions, as described in Day One. If the pet seems to be walking a little better than in Day Two and is getting used to the splint, then it’s time to increase session length again.

Place splint on for 30-60 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these sessions 3 to 4 times during Day Three. Once again, look for any signs of discomfort, and respond accordingly.

Ongoing: Once the pet is able to comfortably wear the splint for 4 hours or more in the day, and no areas of rubbing or irritation are present, it’s all right to increase wear time to almost a full day, if needed. If you are unsure how long the splint should be worn based on your dog’s medical condition, it’s always best to consult with your Veterinarian.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long should my pet wear the Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splint?

Splints are not designed to be left on your pet for a long period of time. Introduce your pet to the splint by slowly fitting the splint onto your pet as instructed in the Instructions Section.

How do I use the Walkin’ Adjustable Splint?

Injuries to the lower limb of small animals often need to be splinted or braced. Please see your veterinarian to determine whether this is the best treatment for your pet. These splints can be used on the lower front or rear leg for stability and support and are available in a full range of sizes to accommodate comfortably. Your pet should always be supervised when using the splint.

Where do I put the splint?

The Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splints are placed on the back of the rear or front leg and held in place by padded touch fastener closure straps. They extend about halfway up the leg. The bottom of the splint extends completely under the paw to provide weight-bearing support. This is ideal for fractures, knuckling, and other ailments.

What are the splints made of?

Splints are made of hard plastic with a soft foam lining and a non-skid pad on the bottom. The non-skid pad will not work well on some slippery surfaces. Before using the splint, test it on the surface to make sure it will grip adequately.

How will I know if the splint fits well and how long to wear it?

Splints should be used only when recommended by a pet care professional who will determine whether the splint is appropriate, how long it should be worn, and what problems might occur that would indicate that use of the splint should be discontinued. These include chafing, muscle atrophy, or extreme distress of the animal.

How should I start using it on my pet?

The Walkin’ Fit Adjustable Splint is designed for Professional Use Only. A Veterinary or Rehab Professional should guide your pet throughout their course of treatment. Please refer to the Instructions section for step-by-step instructions on how to begin using the splint.

How do I put the splint on?

Initial splint fitting and adjustment should be completed with the guidance of a Veterinary Professional. Putting a thin sock on the leg before applying the splint is sometimes more comfortable for the dog. Splints should be ideally be applied on a standing animal. You may apply to an animal laying down. Just make sure to check the fit and retighten straps if needed when they stand up. Make sure to make ALL width and angle adjustments with the brace off the animal. Once adjusted to fit your pet, you may begin to place on the animal. Starting at the bottom, place the foot flat in the bottom of the splint. Make sure that the toes do not extend over the bottom edge. Snug the bottom strap first and work your way up the splint. Check for a snug fit after the animal has taken a few steps.

How do I know what angle to set the splint at?

The natural angle of the hock or Tarsal joint on the rear leg is about 30 degrees. The natural angle of the carpal joint or wrist on the front leg is about 10 degrees (this is much straighter than the rear leg). Remember every pet’s confirmation with vary. The splint angle should be set at a natural, comfortable position unless advised otherwise by your Veterinarian. You may reference the non-splint leg as a guide to set the splint if needed.

How do I know what width to set the splint at?

The splint should be set to be slightly wider than your pet’s leg or paw. Allowing a small amount of room on either side will provide a secure fit without rubbing. You want to avoid having your pet’s leg rubbing the sides of splint when walking and standing or too much room on either side allowing the paw to move around in the splint.

What is the range of adjustability for the splint width?

The Adjustable Splint’s width adjustments allow you to fit your pet’s brace to accommodate its unique leg shape. Use the sizing chart below to select the size that will best accommodate your pet’s leg width. We recommend measuring the width at the carpal joint for a front leg or at the hock joint for a rear leg.

For the most accurate width measurement, we recommend placing a piece of paper behind your pet’s leg and making a mark on either side of the leg at the carpal or hock joint. Once complete, measure the distance between those two marks to determine the width of your pet’s leg.

Splint SizeLeg Width at Hock/Carpal

How much space is there from the foot to the hock or carpal joint?

Every pet is unique and is shaped differently. For pets with short or long legs, we recommend taking an additional measurement from the back of the paw (at the ankle or wrist) up to the center of the hock or carpal joint. When a splint is well-fitted, the joint should fit comfortably in the natural bend of the rear splint.

Splint SizeBack of Paw to Hock/Carpal

Can my dog sit and lay down with a splint on?

Yes, your pet can sit and lay down with our splints.

My dog has a rear limb knee problem (ACL or Patella). Will a splint work for my dog?

No, splints will support the lower limb for the animal but will not go high enough to support the knee on the dog.

My dog seems to fall in between sizes in your chart; should I order the larger size?

If your pet’s measurement falls between sizes, please call us at 1-888-253-0777, and our Customer Service Department will help you to determine the correct size.

Can I change or remold the splint with heat?

No. The splint is adjustable in width and angle. We do NOT recommend heating or modifying the splint in any way which could change the structural integrity of the splint.

Does the splint have any tread or soiling on the bottom so the dog will not slip?

Yes, the splints have a non-skid surface on the bottom.

Do the splints have any padding inside, and can it be cleaned?

Yes, the splints are fully lined with foam and may be spot cleaned and left to air dry.
