Dog Paw Protection - The Dog Outdoors
Commonly made from either rubber, fabric, or plastic, dog booties offer a substantial degree of protection and insulation for your pup's paws that not only help to shield them from the elements, but also to protect their sensitive areas from injury. Consider the anatomy of a dog's paw. While it's a bit thicker than the skin at the bottom of a person's foot, that doesn't mean your pet is any less vulnerable to injury.

There are often times that our dogs need protection for their paws. It could be protection from snow and salt, protection from hot sidewalks or protection for medical purposes. Sidewalks and roads are coated with salt during the winter, and can be equally as abrasive during the hot summer months. A good pair of dog boots is not just for winter weather, they are also great protection for hot pavement, walking on gravel roads or rocky hikes. Without proper protection, your dog may injure or burn its paws. Dogs also may cut their pads and need protection during the healing process, or you may want to prevent them from licking their paws while suffering from allergies.

He's a very good dog and, thank God, he has come through a lot of challenges. It seems that he was found on the street as a stray and taken to the SPCA. His condition was not very good and he needed to be fed with an eye dropper for some time to get his strength back. After several surgeries he was finally ready to come home. We were told that Nigel must have sustained an injury to his left foreleg that was never repaired. Perhaps someone had stepped on and broken his leg. As a result, Nigel learned to compensate by either leaning on the joint above his paw while walking, or hopping on his other 3 legs. He seemed undaunted by any discomfort or inconvenience and loved the company of other people and pets. Nigel loves to walk and romp about. Indoors, that works out okay. When outside, though, he had a tendency to scuff his skin raw on his foreleg when on harder surfaces. For our first days with Nigel, we initially purchased some dog boots from a local store, but discovered a couple things. (a) there wasn't the type of 'fitting advice' that we got from Ultra Paws; (b) the locally purchased boots did not come in the very small size needed to fit Nigel; (c) the other boots didn't have the dual Velcro closures that Ultra Paws uses, to keep them in place; and (d) the other boots did not have the protective padding design. At the suggestion of the vet that had been looking over his care, we had contacted Ultra Paws to see what would work to protect his left forepaw. With the Ultra Paws boots, Nigel enjoys his walks with his playmate Peanut. They take turns to see who can make us walk faster. His left foreleg shows no further signs of scuffing, and the former redness and irritation seem to be going away. After 2 weeks, Nigel, Peanut and our cats Pumpkin and Sailor have found a new routine at home. We're very fortunate and happy! - Dave & Mary Pat M - New Jersey (Ultra Paws® Durable)
