The Toe-Up Sciatic Sling has been developed to assist those dogs who suffer from hind paw knuckling. The Toe-Up prevents knuckling by supporting the 2 centre digits, and is attached via an adjustable elastic cord to a strap on the hock.
The Toe-Up is available in the following 4 sizes: X-Small 1"-3", Small 2"-4", Medium 4"-6" and Large 6"-8".
n.b. The size relates to the circumference of the limb and the measurement should be taken just above the tarsus (hock) and should not include the calcaneus and malleoli.

A Ruffwear boot conversion is also available for those cases where prolonged use of the 'Toe-up' Sciatic Sling is required, or where the dog has delicate or sensitive interdigital skin. It allows the 'Toe-up' Sciatic sling to lift the dog's paw without it directly contacting the skin.
For boot sizing, please refer to the following table:
For dogs with delicate or sensitive paws, the Boot Conversion liner will provide an additional layer between the paw and boot when using the Toe-Up Sciatic Sling.

The Liner is available in four sizes: XSmall /Small/Medium/Large.
N.B. Please note that Boot Liners are sold individually.
