Back On Track Hock/Ankle Wraps are expertly manufactured from a revolutionary, durable polyester material, which incorporates a unique ceramic fabric that gives the product it‘s heat-inducing properties. The product is secured using four Velcro straps.
To obtain the appropriate size requirement, the important dimension is the length of the leg (in a straight line down) from the just below the thigh to the top of the paw. Also, measure the circumference of the animal's leg above the first joint (tarsus) to give you the upper leg dimension. Measure the circumference of the animal's leg between top of the paw & the tarsus (hock) joint to give you the lower leg dimension. Please see image,below main picture.
(The Shin/Leg Wraps & Hock/Ankle Wraps do not reinforce or immobilize the limbs in a similar way to that of splint. However, when fitted securely, but comfortably (utilising the Velcro straps), they do form a robust support, yet still allows for normal movement.)
