Apply as much padding around the leg as you can before setting the splint. Keep padding dry. For fractures, it is recommended to leave the splint on for 6 weeks. Remove the splint, clean, and assess the area at least once a week. For younger birds who are still growing, remove and check sizing every 3 days.

 

Intended for use with standard zip ties. Use small wire cutters for zip tie removal.

 

PLEASE NOTE - while wearing this splint, please restrict your bird’s movement by keeping them in a confined area, or ideally, a suspended sling. Just like with humans, the goal is to keep the fractured bones stable as they heal. This splint does not allow for natural movement of the ankle, so they will not be able to perch or lay down in their usual position. This is why keeping them in a suspended sling is ideal.
