Conditions that may benefit from Walkin’ Carpal Splint Include:
- carpal hyperextension
- carpal or metacarpal joint instablilities or malformations
- osteoarthritis of the carpal joint
- Degenerative Joint Disease of the Carpus (DJD)
- soft tissue injuries to carpal tendons/ligaments
- post-surgical protection
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 Walkin’ Front Splint.
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. During nighttime hours we recommend using the Walkin’ Wrist Hugger to continue to offer light support.
