The Veterinary SAM Splint

The Veterinary SAM Splint is a lightweight, flexible splint. The Veterinary SAM Splint is built from a core of aluminum alloy, sandwiched between two layers of closed-cell foam. 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, aluminum, 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.

The Veterinary SAM Splint is a radiolucent immobilization device, well accepted for use in humans and has been carefully evaluated and improved to meet the unique requirements of veterinary medicine.

    How can I purchase this product “Sam Splint” for my dog. I’m not a vet, but I need something like this to help him

    You can purchase the SAM Splint through multiple web sites, including Amazon, Rescue Essentials, and many, many more! In addition, REI and other outdoor stores carry our splints. The vet splint may also be purchased through Jorgensen Vet:

    I’ve managed to purchase some sam’s splint materials. I now need a video on splinting or on the different types of splints for a dog’s leg. Where can I view something like that? I’ve already checked out youtube, and they had one video of a dog getting a broken foot splinted using samsplint materials, but I’d like to see how to do a dog’s leg. If you have a video like that available for viewing, that would be great.

    Hi Lisa,
    I think you’ll find this video very helpful:
    Make sure you bend the splint into a c-curve, that’s how they get their strength!

    Go to you-tube and type in how to splint a dog’s foot and there is a guy that uses this product to splint his dog’s foot. Check it out if you need help to use this product.
