1. Take a sewing tape, or a tape measure and string.

3. Look at the size chart for the size that corresponds to the measurement taken.
4. If in doubt between two sizes, choose the larger one.

If in doubt between two sizes select the bigger one.

The carpal brace wraps around the dog's leg right above the paw (give or take few millimeters). There is extra protection inside the support to protect the extensor tendons.
The brace should exert homogeneous pressure over the entire surface. To do so it is necessary to stretch the neoprene before placing it. In order for the fabric to stretch correctly, you must separate the Velcro straps.
It is very important to check your pet's skin every 2 hours during the first few days in order to control small possible skin lacerations or irritations. Always place the support on dry skin.
If you notice that the dog's paws begin to sweat right after placing the support, it should be loosened, reducing the amount of pressure exerted.
