Wound Boot - Recommended by Vets Everywhere
Product De-Tails:
  • Ultra-Paws Wound Boots are sold individually.
  • Breathable to allow air to freely flow in and around the wound area - reducing moisture and keeping the wound area dryer and cooler
  • Improves healing
  • Helps prevent infection
  • The sole is a non-skid PVC material which provides traction indoors and limited use outdoors.
  • Spandex sides allow for a range of healing stages - expands to cover bandage or cast and reduces when bandage is removed for continual healing protection.
  • EASY TO PUT ON Wide top expands to slip dog's paw into the boot
  • Interior foam pads help keep the boot securely in place and provide comfort.
  • Two generous Velcro straps with closures at the front and back
  • Restricts licking or chewing at wounds - since some dogs may still try to lick or chew the boot, we recommend a product such as Bitter Apple Spray which has been found to reduce this behavior.
  • It stays on but just to be sure - pick up a roll of the dog bandaging tape to wrap on the top of the wound boot
  • Ultra Paws® fully guarantees all of their products against defects in materials and craftsmanship.


    Sizing Information:

    Sizes for a bandaged paw:

    If your dog is wearing a bandage, wrap, or cast, use a soft tape measure and measure around the bulkiest/widest area of the bandaged paw.

    Small -- circumference range of 4 1/2" to 6 1/2"
    Medium -- circumference range of 6 1/2" to 9 1/2"
    Large -- circumference range of 7 1/2" to 11"

    Sizes for a non-bandaged paw:

    Press your dog's foot down against the ground to mimic how your dog's foot spreads while walking and measure the distance across the width of your dog's foot.

    Small -- paw width 1 1/4" to 1 3/4"
    Medium -- paw width 2 1/4" to 2 3/4"
    Large -- paw width 3 1/4" to 4"

    Cleaning Instructions: Loosely fasten velcro closures, wash in cold water on delicate cycle, hang to air dry.

    Note: Not recommended for dogs that drag their paws. Keep your dog's nails trimmed to avoid puncture.



  • Signs of burned pads:
    • limping or refusing to walk
    • licking or chewing at the feet
    • pads darker in color
    • missing part of pad
    • blisters or redness
    Be careful if you take your dog swimming and then go on hot pavement.
    The time in the water softens their pads so dry off the paws and walk on the grass.


    Burned pad first aid
    It is important to keep the foot area cool and clean. As soon as you notice the problem (limping along on the road), flush with cool water or a cool compress if available. Get the dog to a grassy area or if possible, carry him.


    At first chance, your vet should examine your dog for signs of deeper burns, blisters and possibility of infection. Your vet will determine if antibiotics or pain medication is needed. Washing the feet with a gentle cleanser and keeping them clean is important. Bandaging can be difficult to do and to maintain (monitor and change often), but licking must be kept to a minimum.
    Dog boots works great to stop the licking because the double straps keep it secure. Some dogs will tolerate a sock to keep the area clean, but caution is advised for dogs that may chew and ingest the sock. Lick deterrents (bitter sprays) may help reduce the damage caused by licking.


    Best advice is to be mindful of hot surfaces -- asphalt and metal (i.e. boat dock, car or truck surfaces) -- and walk your dog on the cool side of the street or in the grass. Another tip is to lay down a wet towel for your dog to stand on when grassy areas are not available




    Preventing Dog Paw Injury in the Summer Heat
    There are several measures that dog owners can take to prevent burns and injury to a dog's paw pads. Some of these preventative measures designed to prevent pad injuries will also make the dog less vulnerable to other summertime pet dangers, like canine heat stroke and sunburn.

    Tips For Dog Summer Safety


    • Walk the dog in the early morning or evening to avoid paw pad burns. Avoid walking the dog in the heat of the day, when the sun beats down, heating the pavement and sand.
    • Walk the dog on the grass. The grass remains cooler than the sidewalk, lessening a dog's chance of paw pad injuries in the summer. This makes a trip to a shady park a good option for an afternoon walk in the summertime.
    • Take frequent dog walks on the pavement during cool times of day. This will help toughen a dog's paw pads by promoting the formation of callus. This makes the skin of the dog's foot pads thicker and less prone to injuries like burns and cuts. Dogs who rarely walk on pavement will have more sensitive paw pads and they require more frequent nail clippings, as walking on pavement files the dog's nails.
    • Moisturize the dog's paws on a daily basis. Keep a dog's paws well moisturized with Vaseline® or a special paw pad balm or cream, like Musher's Secret®. Moisturizing the dog's paw pads will prevent cracking, peeling and minor pad cuts. These injuries will cause the dog's pads to become more sensitive once healing is complete, so preventing injury is key.



    Here's the NUMBER ONE QUESTION during the worst allergy season in years. Here's a typical customer question exchange. We aren't vets but have over seven years of experience with our dogs, customer's dogs and our panel of dog testers, hope this helps.
    Q- My dog licks his paws til they are raw. Looking for something to keep him from licking
    A- The Wound boot is the best, it attaches well so it stays on and stops them from biting the paw and to help it heal
    Q- Have tried the various sprays like bitter apple etc, to stop him but he continues to bite
    A- This is the worst allergy season in history, you need to treat the allergy first. The wound boot stops them from chewing but you are treating the symptom not the problem.
    Q-Any suggestions for the allergies?
    A- Your vet will suggest either benadryl-for allergies or Prednisone - Treatment of excessive itching & Alleviation of asthma and other allergies
    A-We can help protect your dog but please consult with your vet about the best way to handle the problem

Product Reviews for Dog Paw Wound Boot

You wouldn’t want to stick your size 10 foot in a size 8 shoe because it’d be incredibly uncomfortable.
The same goes for your dog, which is why we’re here to help you measure your dog’s foot to ensure a comfortable fitting boot.
To measure the width of your dog’s foot, place the foot on a piece of paper and press down on the top of the foot, mimicking how the foot spreads when the dog’s walking. Mark the left and the right side of the foot on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the boot sizes. The width of the foot should be smaller than the boot size. For example, if the foot width is 1 1/2 inches, order an XSmall at 1 3/4 inches.

    Sizing without bandage
  • Small fits paw width 1-1/4"(3.8cm) to 1-3/4"(4.5cm);
  • Medium fits paw width - 2-1/4"(5.7cm) - 2-3/4"(7cm);
  • Large fits paw width - 3-1/4"(8.3cm) to 4"(10.2cm)
# Note: If wearing a bandage, wrap or cast, a measurement of the circumference of the paw may help with proper sizing. Use a soft tape measure and position it around the bulkiest/widest area of the bandaged paw. Take this measurement and check the circumference ranges below for correct sizing:
Sizes for a bandaged paw :
  • Small fits a circumference range of 4-1/2"(11.4cm) to 6-1/2"(16.5cm)
  • Medium fits a circumference range of 6-1/2"(16.5cm) to 9-1/2"(24.1cm)
  • Large fits a circumference range of 7-1/2"(19.1cm) to 11"(27.9cm)
Signs of burned pads:
  • limping or refusing to walk
  • licking or chewing at the feet
  • pads darker in color
  • missing part of pad
  • blisters or redness
