|Stick an adhesive ribbon on the distal part of the limb and let an extra 10cm hanging down.|
Apply the stockinette
avoiding any crease. Cover with foam padding with 50% overlap.
Two - three layers will be sufficient. Extra layers should protect any bony prominences.
|Cut Vet-Lite sheets in a triangle following the curve of the limb. Use 2 or 3 layers depending on the size of the animal.|
|The sheets should be cut a little longer than the finished splint; this will allow to fold over the Vet-Lite sheet for a rounded border.|
|Make a strengthening corner ribbon on the splint main axis and apply the splint on the anterior face of the limb.|
The extra 10 cm of adhesive ribbon will be folded over and attached above the cast.
Secure the splint with a Velpo wrapping.
