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.

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.
