In today’s VETgirl online veterinary continuing education blog, we discuss when and how to place a SPICA splint on a dog or cat. If you want to immobilize the humerus or the femur of a veterinary patient to provide support to fractures and tendons, you need to know how to place a SPICA bandage.

  1. What material is being used for the rigid support? Looking to see if I can purchase that for our clinic?

  2. Is it possible to break down the bandage technique that is used when you transition from the limb to the chest? 🙂

  3. For everyone wondering what the plastic is that is used in this video, it is a type of specialized plastic often called “thermo-plastics” that is used for molding splints. There are several brands available.
