Why You Should Use Protective Winter Boots for your Dogs

Why You Should Use Protective Winter Boots for your Dogs

With winter fast approaching, we have to start to consider our dogs comfort and warmth while out on walks. As well as a warm or waterproof coat for our thinner skinned dogs, we might want to buy some protective dog boots to help protect our dogs paws from the cold, winter chemicals and the wet. When purchasing a pair or boots for you dog, it is very important to get the correct size.

We find the best way to measure it to get you dog to weight bear on a piece of paper, and draw around the paw with a pen or pencil. Dog boots need to fit, be comfortable and they need to stay on! Dog need to be able to run, jump and even swim in them if needs be! As all dog are so different, you may not be able to find dog boots s that fit well, or your dog may just refuse to wear them, in which case you can take other steps to protect their paws. When you dog comes back on the house after a cold and wet winters walk, soak their paws for a few seconds in a bowl of warm water, then dry them thoroughly. (If he's a little dog, wipe down his legs and belly too.) You can also trim the fur between his toes to help reduce or prevent the build up of ice and snow there, which can damage the pads or cause your dog to limp. 

Therapaw Protective Dog Boot

The Therapaw dog boot has ultra-cushioned interior pad which alleviates pain, reduces lameness, and promotes more even weight distribution.

These boots are great for dogs that suffer from corns, dogs that need protection for wounds or injuries to the paw to prevent infection, dogs that have has toes amputated and general protection from the environment.
