Overview

How to Put on the Walkin’ Rear Splint

 

The Walkin’ Rear Splint for dogs and cats helps with injuries to the lower back limbs that need to be splinted or braced. Modeled after human splints, this product will provide stability and support for your pet’s lower rear limbs.

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

It’s important to remember that any splint or bootie 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.

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

The Walkin’ Rear Splints come in a range of sizes to fit your dog or pet perfectly. The sizes range from XXSmall to XLarge to make sure most breeds are covered. All splints come with adjustable straps to best fit the splint to your pet’s dimensions. Splints will not be effective if they are too loose or too tight.

Please keep in mind that Walkin’ Rear 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 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.

Rear Splint Measurements Front Splint Measurements

A: Measure from end of longest toenail to midpoint between hock and knee.
B: Measure from the end of longest toenail to top of hock.
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.
If joint is swollen due to arthritis or other medical condition, go up a size to accommodate swelling, and adjust fit using foam to create a more custom fit.
