Questions & Answers

20 Customer Questions

will this help with a ACL tear.
Answer by ChewyMay 28, 2018
This splint is specifically made to stabilize the lower part of the leg and provide support to help your dog walk and make recovering from an injury less uncomfortable and painless. It would definitely help with any Achilles injuries but we always recommend checking with your local veterinarian befo re using the splint on your dog or pet.

How do you measure for the correct size???
Answer by ChewyJan 12, 2018
For accurate selection, measure from end of longest toenail to midpoint between hock and elbow. Then, measure from end of longest toenail to top of hock.

I tried the paw bracers for rear and front and they were too small around his hock for rear legs. I wanted them to help with his knuckling and feet folding under him. Do you think the rear full splints would work well for this??
Answer by ChewyNov 29, 2017
This product is intended to prevent knuckling, dragging or scuffing paws for pets with neurological conditions or nerve damage.

Would this help a dog with degenerative myelopathy?
Answer by ChewyJul 25, 2018
Depending on the stage of the disease your dog is in, this may be effective for a limited time. As the degenerative disease progresses, you may need to utilize products like the HandicappedPets Wheelchairs and the HandicappedPets Harnesses. Always consult your vet first before making any decisions having to do with the dog's medical health.

Worked for my 86lb lab

My 7 year old lab's hind leg went lame and was dragging the top of her foot. This became cut and infected. The boot style splint helped keep her foot in the upright position and was has since regained strength in her leg. Highly recommend.

Just not for us

My greyhound's back leg just never healed correctly from 4 months ago and she continues to walk/run three legged. This splint could work at the beginning of an injury, but was just too heavy for my spindly-legged girl. Thank you Chewy for your amazing customer service.

For Temporary use

Our dog has 2 custom braces for Achilles heel tears. (A misdiagnosis from the vet we USED to go to and surgeries that didn't work due to that wrong diagnosis that changed our beautiful girls life forever). We had to have her braces sent in for repairs. She almost immediately went into a depression and her appetite diminished exponentially. I had one of these braces previously for emergency use only. I had to purchase a second one so she could walk upright again. It did it's job for the 2 weeks we needed it for. They are definitely not for long term use. They are hard to put on, they have no padding for comfort, They also have no tread on the bottom, There were several times I thought she might injure herself more because she had no traction on slippery surfaces. It was scary for her when she couldn't get her footing. Thank goodness we only had to use these for a short time. They work ok but can be dangerous and for temporary use only IMHO. The one thing I would like to add is that Chewy shipped it very quickly!!

Foot drag from stroke

Nice brace, with velcro attachment. My small cat would not keep it on.

Didn’t work out

I bought the correct size, however, unfortunately the splint does not stay on my dog’s rear leg long enough to be useful. I’ve tried everything to pad it/ keep it on...but I eventually find it lying on the ground. Cannot use it, but it did seem to support his leg while it was on him for the five minutes at a time. Disappointing.

Size chart and item missing important size information! Width matters!

The chart listed does not include the width of the animals bone from side to side. My cat fit the XX-small exactly as the size chart said, but the splint was still so narrow we couldn't get his ankle bone to fit into it. They really messed up by not including that information! Now I have a $50 splint that I can't use. I really want my money back and this important size information included in this item's description! I can't even size up bc the length would be WAY too big going from an xx-small to an x-small!

Great great great

Sturdy and strong! Be sure to get the right size or it can't do its job.

Awesome customer service

I ordered this splint for my 12 year old Boxer who has neurological issues and has limited control over her hind leg. After trying the splint, she doesn’t have enough control to be able to stand or walk with it on. I contacted Customer Service, and the representative was amazing! I didn’t even have to return it, they asked me to donate to a shelter or a furry friend in need. My account was credited within a few minutes! I recommend Chewy, and will definitely be ordering again for my fur babies!

Difficult to keep on a kitten

I ordered one to help support my kitten's torn Achilles tendon but could not make it stay on and of course did he want it on :)
