Hind Leg Splint@dm1n
Kimzey Hind Leg Saver Splints
The hind splint is formed to match the anatomy of a hind leg keeping it in a more natural position. A removable spacer bar, made of 5/8″
aluminum bar, is located on the back of the hoof holder. The spacer bar, when attached, provides seven degrees of incline to relieve pressure at the injured area.
Note: In most cases a front leg saver splint is used for a hind leg injury. Look at the photo of Dakota below. Is this the position you want the patient’s leg to be in, or does the patient need to be in a “tip-toe” position to relieve pressure from the back of the leg? “Tip-toe” position requires a front leg saver splint even if it’s being placed on a hind leg.
