• Flexor tendon problems in pups

The good news is that the great majority can do very well indeed if the legs are splinted in extension. This stretches the flexor apparatus and gives the extensor apparatus a chance to tighten up and restore a balance between flexion and extension.

At West Midlands Referrals we usually splint the affected leg(s) for a few days, then try them without the splints and are prepared to replace the splints for a few days at a time until the problem sorts itself out.
