When a calf is born with a contracted flexr tendon, the fetlock joint is caused to knuckle under, causing serious limitation to the mobility of the calf.
With application of the splint the calf should have normal mobility immediately.
Apply splint to back of leg with bottom edge of splint down to ground level. Bandage firmly with non stretch adhesive bandage. Check regularly for swelling or discomfort. Remove splint after 7-8 days. Splint can be reused with new non stretch adhesive bandage.
