Therapaw Dog Boot

Sizing Information

While your dog is standing, place a piece of paper under the dog's paw and trace around the paw. Then, remove the paper and take measurements at the widest point (for paw width) and longest point, including nails (for paw length). Since paws splay with added weight, for the most accurate measurements, make sure that your dog is bearing his/her natural weight down on the paw before you make your tracing.  To get the wrist/ankle measurement, measure the circumference at the midpoint of the wrist/ankle.  Then for the front leg, measure the height from the back of the main footpad to the base of the carpal pad.  And/or for the back leg measure the height from the top of the paw to the ankle joint. Remember to allow room for bandaging of the paw if that is required.

Thera-Paw boots are made with a rubber base and a stretchy, breathable, neoprene sock, so they will provide some degree of stretch to fit snugly over the digits.

What Vets are Saying:
“Can be used as an alternative to surgery for sesamoid bone fractures ... Is useful as a surgical bandage following corn removal, and is useful for the prevention and recurrence of corns ... And Thera-Paw is easy to slip on and off.”

Sean Aiken, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS

I see two primary applications for Thera-Paw: Post-surgery to protect the bandage and the foot, and post-bandage removal to protect the vulnerable site and prevent re-injury ... I think this product is also useful for corns, where either surgery has failed or the owner has declined surgery ... Thera-Paw is well made with no internal seams to reduce rubbing ... And is well- tolerated ... It provides good overall protection, padding, and support.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes Thera-Paw dog boots different from other ''dog boots''?
A: Most ''dog boots'' are designed to protect HEALTHY paws. Thera-Paw also protects healthy paws but is specifically designed to protect, support, and comfort INJURED paws

Q: What makes Thera-Paw dog boots so comfortable?

Thera-Paw has an ultra-cushioned interior pad that helps to reduce lameness and promote more balanced weight distribution. Thera-Paw's inner seams have been eliminated to minimize rubbing. Thera-Paw's flexible and breathable upper sock gives with the movement of the paw to allow full range of motion.

Q: Will the Thera-Paw boot stay on an active dog?

Yes. Since Thera-Paw is designed for injured paws, it is important that it stay on AND that it stay in place. Thera-Paw has TWO closing components to ensure that it stays on. Thera-Paw has been tested for "staying power" on healthy greyhounds running at speeds of close to 30 miles per hour.

Q: Can Thera-Paw dog boots be worn throughout the day?

Yes. Since paw and paw pad injuries take time to heal, Thera-Paw is designed to be worn for EXTENDED periods.

Q: Is the Thera-Paw dog boot waterproof?

The rubberized sole and toe cover are waterproof. But Thera-Paw's flexible upper sock is made of perforated material, which allows the paw to breathe, and minimizes moisture build-up.

Q: Is the Thera-Paw dog boot easy to maintain?

Yes. To clean Thera-Paw, just rinse it with warm water and ring it out like a sponge. Thera-Paw air dries in less than one hour. You may also use a mild detergent. Thera-Paw tolerates cleaning by washing machine, dishwasher, and autoclave, though these processes may decrease it's longevity.

Q: Who designed the Thera-Paw dog boot?

Thera-Paw was designed by an occupational therapist (with 8 ex-racing greyhound dogs) and by two veterinary surgeons. Thera-Paw was designed to address common paw-related problems.

"I am so happy I found thera-paw dog shoes because, without them, my greyhounds would be housebound or reduced to short painful walks due to the corns on their feet. Now they can walk pain-free."
2012-01-08 00:00:00
"As my greyhounds have corns there is no way they could enjoy a walk without wearing a thera-paw dog shoe. It gives them a cushion so that they can enjoy their walks without pain."

"I love the Therapaw shoe I purchased for Savannah. However, I will need to purchase a larger one because this one was too small even though I measured. I understand the measuring process is not exact so I am not complaining and I appreciate the discount for doing this review. We have been using it anyway. I will be purchasing a new shoe. Thankfully, your company sells them as singles. Thank you.

Thank you "

"We bought 2 Thera-paw shoes for Lion our 130# Malamute/Shepard mix. He had to have the nail and first joint removed on a back foot. The boots are easy to put on and they stay on well...the velcro does the job :) We had to use an IV bag with the top cut off from the vet while he was bandaged as nothing would fit over it. We are happy with the Thera-Paw now that he is with out a bandage. "

"The shoes are very soft inside, so that is a plus for her sore paw. Her leg is still very weak, so the shoes give her the traction she needs to be able to walk. Sometimes, however, when she gets excited about something and turns in circles, the shoe twists a little out of place, one time even turning upside down on her foot."

"These "boots" were excellent and did exactly what we expected them to do!"

"I bought a Thera Paw boot for my greyhound about 2 years ago and it has made the world of difference to him on his daily walks. He was limping badly due to a corn on his back paw and now he walks normally and doesn't seem to know that he has the boot on. It wore out so now it's time to buy a new one and I'm happy to do so. It really changed my dog's favorite activity from a painful uncomfortable one to a pleasurable one again. "

"Joe is 9 and his back legs are starting to fail so I ordered them hoping it would help him walk better on the hardwood floors inside and not scrape his nuckles on the gravel outside. They were a bit to much for him, though the shoes do have great traction and are made of quality material. "

"The Thera-paw has worked very well for us and our dog. It stays on and she is able to go on walks with it (another dog bootie I tried came off within the first block). The shoe keeps her from licking her wound and also allows for the wound to have some air so it can actually heal. "

"Wellsley took all of about 10 minutes to figure out that this medium dog shoe was HELPING him to walk on all types of terrain!!!!! No more limping on all surfaces except sand & grass......roads, gravel and asphalt are all handled like the sand he most likes!!!!!!! Good thing he now lives out at the Pacific Ocean!!!! My Greyhound, Wellsley, is happy that I found these Thera-Paws for whatever ails his feet!!!!!"

"I had to return the Thera Paws because my dog was uncooperative in putting it on. Because he has hind leg weakness, I think he would have found the shoe cumbersome and too heavy to walk in. I liked the product as it seemed well made and sturdy.

"These are a high quality, well-made boot. Unfortunately, they don't work for my dog. He is suffering from DM and drags his toes and does a lot of knuckling. He can't get the hang of walking with the shoes."

"They really seem to help Hershey to walk on the hardwood floor. I would recommend trying two back at a time and two front at a time instead of all 4 at the same time."

"I couldn't be any more impressed with Senior Pet Products customer service, or with the design and quality of the Thera-Paw boot (superior to the RuffWear boot I also bought). My dog's foot is abnormally large (and was run over by a car before I got him), so I couldn't even get one of the standard boots on his foot. We are going to do a custom Thera-Paw ... can't wait to see how it works. Thera-Paw and Senior Pet Products are both excellent companies to deal with."

"I purchased the Thera-Paw Dog Shoes for a disabled Irish Wolfhound that was not bearing weight properly on his pads. They would have worked great and were a great quality as I have tried everything. But my sweet little Riley died of pneumonia before he could use them. Senior Pet Products was very accommodating in allowing me to return the shoes. I would highly recommend Senior Pet Products for any of your pet needs."

"If my dog keeps the shoes on, they are marvelous. Since most of her problem is in her head, the shoes gave her confidence, and she improved even when they were off. But the shoes won\'t stay on. Part of the difficulty is that she\'s an Australian shepherd with lots of hair. We\'ll try the shoes again when she gets her spring haircut."

"These are awesome for our standard poodle. We also have mukluks,but he prefers the thera paws. We only use them indoors to protect our wood floors. The poodle is a seizure dog and sensitive. He has no problem with these shoes. Other cheaper shoes were uncomfortable and unusable because they preoccupied him from his primary focus, our son. Thank you so much for the wonderful products."

"The shoe is well made and durable. Within a few minutes, Sugar accepted wearing them and they did help her back legs from slipping on the tile and wood floors. However, they slip off within a few minutes of wearing them. We just can\'t seem to keep them on her."

"Our dog has foot problems and rheumatoid arthritis. Buck has worn Thera-Paw boots for at least three years. They protect his feet and provide support for his joints. "

"I recieved the Thera-Paw shoe only a few days after ordering. which was great. The Thera Paw shoe has worked very good for Harley. She is being able to use her paw more and put more weight on it using it to walk. The Thera Paw shoe is easy to get on and off and stays put very well. The only problem Harley has with it is that it does not let her foot breath. Her paw stayed very moist inside the shoe and hers needed more air to it. "
2011-02-09 00:00:00
"The shoes arrived and we immediately put them on, they are very good for traction, even in the snow. If I had 4 boots it would have worked to perfection, but I have 2 that fit and 2 that don\'t so I need to rectify that situation. I did find that the smaller the better. Most people that have a large breed senior dog wont be able to measure their feet, Simon is a 12 yr old Bouvier, most Bouvier\'s feet are small for their size, but the hair is difficult to get a shoe on with, having said that, a large is still close to being too big. The very best part of this experience was in speaking with Mr. Martinez, truly he does care about my senior dog and this company. Thank you sir for your consideration."

" They are very good quality and heavy duty but they would not stay on my dog\'s feet. I\'m sending them back. "

"We thought the shoe was made very well, but we ordered the wrong size. Since this is the first shoe we have tried for our 13 year old, we returned the Thera-Paw and ordered her a softer shoe. She\'s now wearing the Ultra Paws traction boot and doesn\'t seem to mind, too much. When she gets used to these, we plan to order Thera-Paw Dog Shoe in Large. We really think it will help her foot dragging problem caused by advanced spinal arthritis. Thanks for the great products!

"The paw pad covers were very high quality and durable. Unfortunately, my dog could not wear them, so I passed them on to my veterinarian to give them to another person\'s pet who may be able to use them. "

"Did not work. The flap creases when walking and rubs the knuckles raw. Provides the protection we needed to prevent the nails from bleeding, but actually also caused the dog to drag leg a bit more - or at least it was really audible."

"Great product; well made and perfect for our dog\'s needs. Ordered two sizes to see which would fit better. Unfortunately, because of surgery (two digits amputated), the shoes did not fit properly. The Med/TE size accommodated her smaller width on that paw, but she needed a larger (taller) size to prevent it from slipping off. But the large one was too roomy inside, causing her to stumble, but otherwise fit perfectly. Had to return both, but refund was issued immediately. Great service, and will try to find something else that works to help our sweet Rosie."

The Thera-Paw Dog Shoe has become an important part of his care during the on-going treatment of his persistent corns. The relief he is feeling and his ability to once again take part in family walks cannot be measured. Thank you for producing this remarkable product."

"The Thera-Paw Shoes are wonderful. By using the recommended measuring guide, they were a perfect fit for my beautiful Borzoi, Raina, who had a spinal cord clot that left her with rear end weakness. Her pads don't get the workout they used to so she's unable to tolerate rough, slippery, and hot surfaces. The Thera-Paw Dog Shoes are so well designed, easy to don, and so secure that she was able to adjust relatively quickly to wearing them. The durability and thickness of the neoprene, velcro closures and strapping, and venting features added to quality construction make these a great buy!

Susan and a more secure Raina"
