An OrthoPets Impression Kit is used to create a fiberglass impression of your pet’s limb. From this fiberglass impression, we are able to make an exact replica (model) of your pet’s leg. Your pet’s custom device is created over this replica along with the measurements your veterinarian provides. The combination of the impression and the measurements ensure precision and accuracy to the model size and shape.
** Please note that if you are trying to order an OrthoPets Impression Kit for a prosthetic device, you first need to speak with an OrthoPets Case Manager to determine if your patient/pet is a candidate for a prosthetic device.
OrthoPets Impression Kit Includes:
- 2 rolls of fiberglass (non-flexible) tape
- Bandage scissors
- Hook cutting blade
- Yellow cut strip
- Tape measure
- Sharpie marker
- Medical gloves
- All documents that are required to submit your pet’s case
**GLAD Press N Seal is required for the fiberglass impression. This is the required barrier between the pet’s skin and the fiberglass tape.
You can purchase a roll of “GLAD Press N Seal” plastic wrap (saran wrap with a tacky backing) along with your casting kit.
**Impression Kits are non-refundable after purchase
