Splints immobilize limbs very effectively. They should only be applied by a veterinarian and should be managed with a veterinarian's guidance.
Splints use needs to be monitored for any complications (pressure sores, bandage change frequency, healing time, etc.).
These serve a great purpose but should be used with care.
