PAW MEASURING VIDEO

STEP 1: Measure the width & length of paw. 
Place a piece of paper on the floor and trace the outline of the paw, from the longest nail to the very back of the paw pad.  (If your dog can bear weight, it's best to trace the paw in a standing position.) Hold your pen at a 90 degree angle to get the most accurate tracing. Then record the length and width of the paw.

STEP 2: Measure the paw circumference. 
Use a measuring tape or piece of string to measure the widest part of the paw. 

STEP 3: Measure the paw circumference.

USES

For pets that need special paw protection, fit, and comfort. 
When a regular bootie just won't do, Thera-Paw is able to work with you (and your veterinary professional, if needed) to customize or fabricate a paw cover/protector to meet your pet's individual needs.

Some examples of paw issues where custom boots and/or slippers are useful include:
 

  • Digit deformities

  • Severe or repeated toe dislocation/deviation

  • Toe or paw amputation(s)

  • Painful corns

  • Paw burns or cuts that required stitches

  • Painful cysts between the digits (interdigital cysts)

  • Warts, tumors, or other painful growths on paw/paw pads

  • Painful arthritis or degenerative joint disease of the paw

PRODUCT DETAILS

Boots are for outdoor use.  Dogs sweat through their paw pads (not their skin or coats).  Their paws need to breathe.  Covering their paws with a dog bootie (including the Thera-Paw Boot) will not allow the pet's paw to breathe properly.  Covering a pet's paw with a bootie for more than a few hours can lead to:

  • moisture build-up around the paw

  • chafing, abrasions, skin breakdown

  • infection

 

Slippers are for indoor use.  Slippers allow the paw to breathe and can be left on throughout the day while the pet is indoors.  Slippers are padded and will protect and comfort your pet's paw. If your pet needs paw comfort and protection when indoors, we highly recommend that you use a breathable slipper.

If you are interested in purchasing one of our custom products, please download the "custom order form" to provide us with your pet's  information. We will contact you shortly to discuss your pet's needs.
