Thera-Paw UK provides custom Carpal and Tarsal Supports and Splints and Thera-Paw boot custom modifications for pets in the UK and Europe.

These supports and splints are designed and handmade specifically for an individual pet’s limb. The supports can be made to provide from the lightest support to immobilisation of the carpal or tarsal joint.  Bespoke padding options include therapy foam, sheepskin or neoprene (for water therapy). If full joint immobilisation is required Thermoplastic (a mouldable human-grade rehab product) can be added over the support thereby allowing skin protection.

You must be a Vet or a Therapist to order these products. This is to ensure that a relevant product is ordered with a full understanding of the pet’s condition and functional issues.

The Vet or Physiotherapist completes the Custom Measurement, Quote and Order Form with detailed measurements and specific requirements for their client. Upon receipt of the order form (preferably with some photos) they will design a suitable product and send you a quote.

A bespoke carpal or tarsal support costs in the range of £90 to £200.

Custom-fitted devices:

  • Provide the best support, protection, assistance

  • Reduce the incidence of abrasion
  • Improve outcomes
  • Lead to a happy pet who can get about more comfortably

They will work with you to design support to best suit your client’s size, confirmation, and therapy needs.

The product is provided with full instructions on how to apply and care for the product and of any on-site adaptations (such as small changes in level of support) that can be made by the Vet or Physiotherapist on fitting the custom product to the pet.
