How to fit

Trimming and fitting 

Sports Wraps can be trimmed ANYWHERE on the neoprene cuff that does not contain stitching.  For example, a hole can be cut for the accessory pad (little nub that sits behind the leg).  A hole can also be cut for the dew claw.  The bottom can be trimmed if the Sports Wrap is too long.  The strap ends can also be trimmed if they are too long.

Right or left – does it matter?

Unless your pet has a valgus deviation, the RIGHT and LEFT Sports Wraps are interchangeable.  Just be careful not to displace the dew claw when applying a Sports Wrap on the opposite leg.


Safety and Success:

Carpo-Flex Sports Wraps should fit snugly around the wrist. The bottom portion should sit just above the paw, almost grazing the ground in the back when the dog is standing. If the bottom back tab is too long, it can be trimmed with scissors.

If planning on leaving the Carpo-Flex Sports Wrap on your pet throughout the day, you may want to consider applying anti-chafing powder inside the brace to help absorb moisture and add a layer of protection to the leg. 

Foam padding can also be added inside the Carpo-Flex Sports Wrap for added comfort.

For dogs that need more support and less mobility at the wrist, contact us to discuss the Carpo-Flex-X support brace.

For small dogs and cats, the Mini version is available for custom order. Please contact us.
