If your pet is knuckling their hind paws, the Rear No-Knuckling Training Sock can help them to regain proper paw placement. It is a training and exercise tool intended for short term use as part of a rehab program. It is designed to help retrain pets that have either been diagnosed with a neurological condition causing them to drag their hind paws, or senior pets experiencing hind end weakness. The training sock works on the pathway from the withdrawal reflex in the paw to the brain, helping pets pick up their feet when knuckling under or dragging their hind paws.

- Lightweight, comfortable, and adjustable, with convenient touch-fastener closures.

How to Choose the Right Size

To determine the correct size Rear No Knuckling Training Sock, you will need your pet’s Top of Paw to Hock Joint measurement as the main point of reference; the recommended weight range is listed as a guide. For assistance with selecting a size, contact us with any questions.

Rear NKTS
Top of Paw to Hock Joint

Measure from the top of the paw (at back) to the centre of the hock joint with your pet in a natural standing position. If your pet is unable to stand or bear weight on the paw, we recommend you consult your Veterinarian for advice on the best treatment tool for your pet.

How the Training Sock Works

The cord loop of the Rear No-Knuckling Training Sock applies light tension under the paw, which stimulates the nerve endings in between the toes. This stimulation invokes a withdrawal reflex that causes the pet to pick up their toes higher and place their paw correctly on the ground. Over time, use of the training sock in daily 5 minute rehab exercises will retrain the body, helping to correct gait and rear paw placement.

Rehab expert Renee Mills, CCRP designed the Rear No-Knuckling Training Sock for use by veterinarians and rehabs, but also for at-home use by the pet parent so they can continue their rehab at home. This product should be used under the advice of your vet or rehab specialist.
