Thera-Paw Boot Measuring Guide

STEP 1: Measure the length & width of paw. 

Place a piece of paper on the floor and trace the outline of your dog’s paw. Hold your pen at a 90 degree angle (straight down on the paper) to get the most accurate tracing. Use the tracing to measure the length and width of the paw.
 

A. For paw length: Measure the distance from the tip of the longest nail to the very back of the paw pad.
B. For paw width: Measure the width distance, from the right to left side of the paw, at the widest point.

STEP 2: Measure the paw circumference. 

Use a measuring tape to measure the thickest part around the pet's paw.  If you do not have a measuring tape, use a string to wrap around the thickest part of the paw, then take that length of string and measure it with a ruler.

STEP 3: Measure the wrist (front paw) / ankle (hind paw) circumference.

A. For front paws: Measure around the dog's leg between the paw and the carpal pad (located behind the leg at the level of the dew claw and wrist joint). 

B. For hind paws: Measure around the dog's leg half way between the paw and the ankle joint.

front - wrist

back - ankle

STEP 4: Measure the wrist (front paw) / ankle (hind paw) height.

A. For front paws: Measure the distance from the floor behind the pet's paw to just below the carpal pad (stopper pad located behind the leg at the level of the dew claw and wrist joint).

B. For hind paws: Measure the distance from the top of the paw to the ankle joint.

front - wrist

back - ankle
