SUPPORT OR ASSISTANCE FOR THE TARSUS

CUSTOM TARSAL SUPPORT


Custom tarsal supports are designed for a dog’s special needs. These supports can be lightweight and mobile, or completely immobilizing. The supports are versatile and stability can be increased or decreased depending on the pet’s needs.

Customized for a variety of uses which include:

  • Achilles and gastric tendon issues
  • Hyperextension
  • Collateral ligament sprains
  • Polyarthritis
  • Instabilities, sprains and strains
  • Tarsal luxations
  • Fractures and post cast removal
  • Arthritic, DJD and OCD

For dogs with Achilles tendon injuries or those collapsing into flexion, “extension-assistive straps” are added to custom tarsal braces.  The straps are sewn onto the proximal caudal aspect of the brace; they crisscross above the calcaneus and then you affix them distally via Velcro tabs to regulate the amount of assistance needed to maintain extension.

Custom tarsal braces can be made for small pets. Above is an example of heavy-duty bilateral tarsal braces, lined with shearling (thin sheepskin) that are just about 3″ tall. Lightweight, more streamlined versions of these can be made for pets that require only minimal support.

SPLINTING KIT

For pets with significant stability impairments  that require the carpus to be completely immobilized.

Tarsal and Carpal kits are available. Our splinting kits use VetForm Thermoplastic sheets.

VetForm is a type of thermoplastic developed specifically for Thera-Paw and takes the guess work out of choosing the right thermoplastic material for splinting. It is easy to work with and provides strength.
