If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Yes, it can be hard, even in this day and age, to find the "right" splint, but the good news is that there are options. I suggest a load of research, then contact the company of the splint you've decided to buy to double-check that it SHOULD work in the given circumstances.
I have used the woundwear brace on my dog Zep. It is a miracle! He had a full cruciate tear. Our Vet had suggested surgery, but we were not ready for that. I did a lot of research and found people having a lot of success with the woundwear brace. I also read using the brace for post surgery and other leg troubles. Good luck on your dog's recovery!
Here is a video I made of Zep recoverying. http://www.youtube.com/embed/JaHZUqhHlYQ
My pup had his cruciate ligament torn - right back leg. I couldn't afford much for the surgery so I did research and asked my Vet about other options. I had my vet take measurements after he recommended the A-trac dynamic brace made by Woundwear. After a few months the ligament healed without surgery! I must say with this brace and probably any, it will take a little bit of time for you dog to get used to it. Once he/she knows it is helping and they can put their foot down, they will like it! I highly suggest the woundwear brace to anyone's dog that is going through the same injury. Their customer support was great. I spoke to Dr. Spatt many times and he was able to help me out.
