Front and Rear Splints - by Walkin' Wheels® from wheels4dogs.co.uk
Back to Products List
These splints are modelled and inspired after human splints that support injuries of the ankle, foot, or lower leg. Splints are positioned in the back of the dog's and pet's leg and can be fully adjusted with the Velcro straps placed over the front of the leg.
There are two different models, the front leg splint that extends to just below the elbow and the back leg splint that extends above the hock. Both splints extend completely under the foot, giving full support to the bottom of the pet's leg.
These splints are built not only for durability but for comfort. They are specifically designed to feel natural and comfortable when placed on your pet, giving them the ability to walk around freely without difficulty or discomfort. At first, it may take a few days for your dog or pet to get use to the feeling of walking around with a splint, but with the state of the art design, they will feel comfortable with movement and mobility in no time.

Sizes and Styles of Splint
These dog and pet splints come in a range of sizes to fit your dog or pet perfectly. The sizes range from XX-Small to X-Large, to make sure all sizes and breeds are covered. For cats, the XX-Small is usually the correct size to purchase, please view our sizing page to verify.
All splints come with adjustable straps to fit the splint perfectly to your pet's dimensions. Splints will not be effective if they are too loose or too tight.
Please keep in mind the Walkin' Wheels™ Splints are designed to support the lower part of the legs. They will not stabilize the knee on the rear leg. Please check with your local veterinarian before using the splint on your dog or pet.
If your dog needs a more specific splint, please see our pages on Bootie, Carpal and Hock Splints.
Keeping your dog Mobile
It may be that your dog only needs a splint for a short period of time or they may need the splints in conjunction with a wheelchair. Whatever is needed, we will hopefully have a splint that can help.
