Swimmers Syndrome Kitten – How To Make Tape Leg Support

Here again is Speedo, our loving, adorable and super energetic foster kitten who is growing in personality by the hour. Speedo, who was born with Swimmer syndrome, requires multiple different types of physical therapy daily. In particular, his hind legs need to be taped together in order to encourage a normal range of motion. By doing so, Speedo is able to walk upright rather than walking with his legs splayed outwards. Not only does this encourage him to walk upright, but it helps to strengthen and tone the muscles necessary for him to walk upright, which – as a result from naturally walking with his legs splayed outwards much of his life – are small and weak. This particular video is an instructional video of how we make his leg supports using regular medical tape.
