Overview

How to put on the Walkin’ Front Splint

The Walkin’ Front Splint for dogs and cats assists with injuries to the lower front limbs that need to be splinted or braced. Modeled after human splints, the Front Splint provides stability and support for the lower front limbs of your pet (carpal and paw).

  • Constructed of waterproof hard plastic exterior, soft interior foam padding, non-skid pad on bottom, and touch-fastener closures.
  • Front Splint extends above carpal and completely under the foot, giving full support to bottom of your pet’s leg.
  • Keeps pet’s leg in normal walking position.
  • Supports and stabilises carpal and paw areas of front limbs.
  • Allows weight to be put on the broken or weak limb.
  • Reduces the standard cost of bandaging and casting.
  • Lightweight design increases the pet’s tolerance of the splint.
  • Provides an easy way to provide daily wound therapy.

It may take a few days for your cat or dog to become acclimated to the feeling of walking around with a splint, but our unique design will have them feeling comfortable quickly.

Please Note: There is no “right” or “left” leg or paw designated for splints; splints may be used for either the right or left leg/paw. If you order a splint and it is marked with “L” it refers to the size (Large).

Sizing

Please keep in mind that the Walkin’ Front Splints are designed to support the lower part of the legs. They will not stabilize the elbow on the front leg. Please check with your local veterinarian before using the splint on your dog or pet.

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

A: Measure from end of longest toenail to midpoint between carpal pad and elbow.
B: Measure from end of longest toenail to just above carpal pad.
C: To measure paw width, place dog’s paw on ground so there is a natural splay, and measure the widest part.

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

and adjust fit using foam to create a more custom fit.
