How to measure
|To determine correct hock splint size, measure from the top of your pet’s paw at the point located on the backside of the leg to the midpoint between hock and knee.
Note: The Hock splint will support the Hock or heel only and does not extend under the foot or paw of the animal. If full lower limb bracing is needed, please see our Standard Rear Limb Splint*.
