Since the purpose of a splint is to help immobilize an injured body part, it is usually changed less frequently. In puppies that are growing rapidly, the splint may need to be changed weekly to allow it to be adjusted for proper fit. In adult dogs, a splint may be left in place for several weeks if there are no complications. The Walkin Pet Splint for Dogs, Canine Rear Leg Splint is waterproof and easy to clean

Dogs are naturally curious animals and this can cause them to fall or even be hit by a passing car. Dogs can fracture or break their legs or tails, and these injures can be very serious. By creating a splint for a dog, its owner can ensure that no further injury to the dog's blood vessels, ligaments and muscles is caused while transporting the animal to a veterinarian for proper care.Find an object to use for the splint that is sturdy enough to keep the dog's leg in place. Items such as a piece of cardboard, a rolled up newspaper or magazine will work. For a smaller dog, a pencil or a small ruler can be utilized. The object should be long enough to stretch past the point of injury to a spot on the animal that is not injured in order to add stability.Place a muzzle on the dog's snout. The dog will most likely be in pain which can make even the sweetest dog snap, growl or bite. If no muzzle is available, place tape or a towel around the dog's snout or ask another person to assist you by holding the dog gently on the ground while the splint is applied.Examine the fracture. Broken bones do not necessarily show on the outside, and it might be a sprain. If a fracture is suspected, then calm the dog down and find a tie or muzzle to ensure your own safety first. Do not allow the dog to move. If it is the front leg, simply use two sticks or any straight and stiff material and tie the splints securely to the dog's front leg and carry him to the car for transport. If it's a hind leg, follow the directions below.
