THINGS TO KNOW

(scroll forward for more information)

Lightweight, yet heavily-supportive carpal braces with either sheepskin or shearling lining and nylon support straps. Thermoplastic splinting is not usually required:

  • nylon support straps tend to provide enough support

  • splints are often too heavy and/or bulky

  • pets are often more comfortable without splint
