SOME TIPS WHEN USING THE REDBOOTS

 

 Foal can be sadated if necessary

 

 Foal can be laying down or standing up

 

 Present the open brace to the limb to asses amount of bandaging to be used.

 

Always bangage limb to make it fit

 

Put more bandaging in the long bones ( Radius, cannon bone and pastern) and less around articulations (fetlocks and knees) as these stuctures are more sensitive to pressure

 

Put the brace with the limb flexed

 

 First close lower part of brace and fast the velcro straps

 

 close upper part of brace and fast the straps

 

 Extend the limb as much as you can and fasten rope into clamcleat

 

 let the foal bear weight and walk around

 

 Make readjustments

 

 leave the brace on for only a few hours at a time ( 3-5 hs) depending on each case

 

 Always use the REDBOOTS under the supervision of a veterinarian

 

 

Using the REDBOOTs is simple. They are meant to be used by vets, horse care takers and owners. The foals get used to them quiclky. Each case will be different. Start by using them for short periods of time and increase it gradually. You can mange a bilateral case with one brace by alternating its use on each leg at a time.
