What Are The Best Greyhound Boots for Greyhounds With Corns?
Boots are a fantastic investment and can greatly relieve your greyhound's pain. You can use greyhound boots as a preventative measure against corns, to reduce pain and limping when your dog has corns or to help post-surgery.
Below are three different brands of greyhound dog boots which we supply:
- Here at Zoomadog we always recommend Hunnyboots, these are specifically designed for greyhound and whippet paws with high shanks to fit skinny legs and not fall off. They are excellent for dogs recovering from or who have current corns, needing extra protection for their sensitive paws. They can be worn inside or out on walks in all weathers.

Many owners also add socks inside the boots. This has two advantages: First, socks help bunch the toes together when putting on the boots. This stops the toes from going in all directions. Secondly, when the boots get sweaty you only need to wash the socks, not the whole boot.

- Alternatively, the Therapaw Protective Dog Boot with an extra thick sole have an ultra-cushioned interior padding which alleviates pain and reduced lameness by distributing weight more evenly. These are also suitable for both inside and outside wear.

- We can also recommend the Walker Active Dog Boots however, although these offer good protection, they are more of an all-rounder boot and not specifically designed for greyhound or whippet paws shapes. This means they can often fall off.
