Product Details

The Veterinary SAM® Splint

Acclaimed by veterinarians, the Veterinary SAM® Splint is the gold standard in splinting. The Veterinary SAM® Splint is built from a thin core of aluminum alloy, sandwiched between two layers of closed-cell foam. The aluminum core in the veterinary version is twice as thick as in the regular SAM® Splint. The Veterinary SAM® Splint is extremely pliable. Bent into any of three simple curves, it becomes extremely strong and supportive for any fractured or injured limb.

The SAM® Splint is based on an ancient construction principle: curves are strong

SAM® stands for: Structural, Sluminum, and Malleable. The splint is exceptionally pliable and when bent into a simple curve, it becomes strong and supportive for any fractured or injured limb. The splint is extremely moldable, and soft enough to cut with ordinary household scissors.
