Also ideal for protecting bandages inserted inside, it makes for faster recovery times.

Instructions For Use

How to Use BT-Splint

How to Use BT-Splint

The splint is pre-shaped but the angle can be modified by the vet if required.
The splint must be shaped by the vet first on the healthy leg (fore or rear) to ensure the correct angle for the affected leg.
The tough, mouldable metal splint inserted inside the fabric follows the shape of the rear of the foreleg, down to the foot pad.
Protective bandaging can be effectively placed inside it.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
  • During the period of restraint, it is advisable not to leave the dog alone for too long, because it might try to remove the brace, by biting or scratching it.
  • The brace is designed for indoor use. To prevent damage when used outside, the dog needs to be fitted with a protective shoe or sock, which can be purchased at any pet store.
