The foot sling is developed to assist dogs who suffer from hind paw knuckling. The sling prevents knuckling by supporting the foot, by the 2 centre digits, and is attached via an elastic adjustable cord to a strap wrapped around the hock.

Patients with the ability to bear weight on the limb (i.e. hock, stifle, and hip
extension) are candidates for the foot sling; these patients have diminished conscious
proprioception or loss of digital extensor function causing toe dragging and knuckling. The
foot sling provides sufficient lift to prevent trauma to nails and digits.
It is intended to prevent trauma to the digits during activity. It should
not be left on over‐night and is suggested to be used for no more than 3 continuous hours
without a break.

As a result of:

  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Spinal trauma
  • Intervertebral Disk Disease
  • Neoplasia
  • Fibrocartilagenous Embolus

The foot sling has two different configurations:

  • Daily use: Place paw into the corrective boots for sciatic nerve secure. For sessions intended more than 15 minutes.
  • Rehab sessions: with one hand supporting the paw, place the neoprene section under 3rd and 4th phalanx, then pull the cord to give the desired amount of tension. For sessions less than 15 minutes.



  • S: 5cm to 10cm of hock perimeter.
  • M: 10cm to 15cm of hock perimeter.
  • L: 15cm to 20cm of hock perimeter.
