3. Trace around the outline of the paw, keeping the pen vertical and in continuous contact with the paw.
4. Determine the Paw Width (A) by measuring the paw tracing at its widest point.
5. Determine the Paw Length (B) by measuring the paw tracing at its longest point to the tip of the nails.
6. Determine the Wrist/Ankle Circumference (C) by measuring the circumference at the midpoint of the wrist or ankle.

Helpful Hints and Other Useful Information
1. If your dog has high knuckles and toes, please add a quarter inch to your Paw Width measurement.
2. If your dog is nervous about bearing weight on the piece of paper, lift his/her other paw off the ground.
3. If your dog is not able to bear weight on the affected paw because of pain or a wound, measure the same paw (Front or Back) on the opposite side AS LONG AS that paw is similar in size and shape.
