It’s important to remember that any splint or bootie placed on a pet’s foot will need to be removed at bedtime, and should be removed for at least an hour during the day to allow the foot to breathe. During night time hours we recommend using either the Walkin’ Hock Hugger or Walkin’ Wrist Hugger to continue to offer light support.
