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

PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE ONLY: Please add 15 additional business days transit time for stock arriving from manufacturer overseas.

MEASUREMENT & SIZE GUIDE: 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. 

Use the measuring diagrams and corresponding size guides (ABC) below for correct sizing of your pet. 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.

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