Paw Protection and Traction



  • ​Arthritis of toes
  • Calluses, corns, warts, and cysts between toes
  • Toe dislocation / deviation / amputation
  • Toe strains / sprains

For pets that knuckle or drag their paws, we recommend a Forelimb Dorsi-Flex Assist or Hindlimb Dorsi-Flex Assist.

For pets with short paws – short digits where paw width and length measurements are similar (e.g., boxers, great danes), you may want to consider a differently-shaped boot like these.

Product Details

Thera-Paw Boots provide outdoor paw protection & comfort for dogs with injured and/or painful paws. Protects against outdoor irritants such as salt, hot pavement, & bacteria. For outdoor use only.

Comforts painful paws and helps aid paw and paw pad cuts, wounds, or burns. Wearing a boot is also a great alternative to paw bandages.

Features include:

  • thick, padded, cushioned inner sole
  • durable, thick, rubber outer base
  • seamless interior for comfortable, non-irritating fit
  • dual cuff closure system secures boot in place

Why shouldn’t my dog wear boots inside?  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

If your pet will mostly use paw protection indoors, we recommend a Cushy-Paw Slipper instead.

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.


Measuring Instructions

If you still need help after reading the instructions below, please contact us at:


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: Paw Circumference

Step 2: 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: Wrist/Ankle Circumference

A. [For Front Paws] Measure around the front wrist. 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 Back Paws] Measure the around the back ankle. Measure around the dog’s leg half way between the paw and the ankle joint.

Step 4: Wrist/Ankle Height

[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).

[For Back Paws] Measure the distance from the top of the paw to the ankle joint.
