How to put on the Walkin’ Bootie Splint
It’s important to remember that any splint or bootie 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.
To determine correct front leg bootie splint size, measure from the end of the longest toenail to 1/2″ below the carpal joint.
To determine correct rear leg bootie splint size, measure from the end of the longest toenail to 1/2″ below the hock joint.
To measure paw width, place dog’s paw on ground so there is a natural splay, and measure the widest part.
