How to Measure
|To 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.
Note: The Walkin’ Carpal Splint will support the wrist or carpus only and does not extend under the foot or paw of the animal. If full lower limb bracing is needed, please see our Standard Front Limb Splint*.*http://www.handicappedpets.com/walkin-pet-splints-dogs-cats
