Product Number: C27390
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
When a calf is born with a contracted flexor tendon, the fetlock joint is caused to knuckle under, causing serious limitation to the mobility of the calf. With the application of the BOS splint to the back of the leg with the bottom edge at ground level, the calf should have normal mobility immediately. Remove the splint after 4-5 days.
Bovine Orthopedic Splints (BOS) are molded from PVC and lined with closed-cell foam for maximum comfort for cows and calves. Use with heavy-duty elastic adhesive bandage to secure splint. Administration of anti-inflammatories at initial splint application may also be beneficial. NOTE: The BOS splints can be slightly modified or molded to suit the leg by using a heat gun or hair dryer.
