Walkin’ Carpal Dog Splint
Walkin’ Carpal Dog Splint supports the carpal joint post injury or surgery. It is a light weight brace designed to stabilise the joint with adjustable velcro strips that secure over your dogs front leg. The inner padding keeps the leg secure and in a comfortable position. The splint ultimately will assist in the healing process of tendon and ligament damage.
Add the custom fit Walkin Splint Foam Insert for extra comfort
Conditions that may benefit from Walkin’ Carpal Splint include:
Carpal or metacarpal joint instabilities or malformations
Osteoarthritis of the carpal joint
Degenerative Joint Disease of the Carpus (DJD)
Soft tissue injuries to carpal tendons/ligaments
Note: The Walkin’ Carpal Splint will support the wrist or carpus only, and does not extend under the foot or paw of your dog. If full lower limb bracing is needed, please see the Walking Front Dog 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.
How to put on the Walkin’ Carpal Splint
SizingTo determine correct Carpal Splint size, measure from the top of paw at the point located on the backside of the leg to the midpoint between carpal joint and elbow
|XSmall||5″ / 12.7 cm|
|Small||5.75″ / 14.6 cm|
|Medium||6.25″ / 15.9 cm|
|Large||6.5″ / 16.5 cm|
|XLarge||7.5″ / 19.1 cm|
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.
How to Introduce a Splint to Your Pet
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.
When introducing a new splint to a pet, it’s important to start slowly. Positive reinforcement methods, using praise, treats, or toys should always be used in association with the splint. The splint will initially make the pet walk “funny” or maybe not want to walk at all. Using positive reinforcement to encourage walking is always the best approach.
Day One: Place splint on pet for 10-15 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these short sessions 3 to 4 times during Day One.
Once the splint is removed, look for any areas of irritation or rubbing on the pet’s skin that may have been caused by the splint. If you notice an area of rubbing, please consult one of our customer service representatives for fitting assistance, and your veterinarian with any medical concerns.
Remember that every pet is different; it may take pets longer than a few days to get used to the splint, and that’s OK. It’s more important to make sure the pet is comfortable with the splint and the fit is correct than to rush the process. Continue with these short sessions until your dog adjusts. If you are concerned that the fit isn’t correct, please contact our customer service department or consult with your veterinarian.
Day Two: If your pet is having a hard time adjusting to wearing the splint, continue with the short 10-15 minute sessions, as described in Day One. If your pet seems to be walking a little better and is getting used to the splint, then it’s time to increase the session length a bit.
Place splint on for 15-30 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these sessions 3 to 4 times during Day Two. Again, look for any signs of discomfort, and respond accordingly.
Day Three: If your pet is still having a hard time, continue with the short 10-15 minute sessions, as described in Day One. If the pet seems to be walking a little better than in Day Two and is getting used to the splint, then it’s time to increase session length again.
Place splint on for 30-60 minutes at a time, then remove. Try these sessions 3 to 4 times during Day Three. Once again, look for any signs of discomfort, and respond accordingly.
Ongoing: Once the pet is able to comfortably wear the splint for 4 hours or more in the day, and no areas of rubbing or irritation are present, it’s all right to increase wear time to almost a full day, if needed. If you are unsure how long the splint should be worn based on your dog’s medical condition, it’s always best to consult with your veterinarian.
