Comfort and Care During Recovery
Our furry companions bring immense joy to our lives, and as responsible pet owners, we prioritise their well-being. One crucial aspect of pet care involves protecting their paws, especially during the recovery process following surgery or injury. Here, we will explore the benefits of MediPaw protective boots, designed to offer comfort and care to our beloved dogs and cats, while aiding healing.
Post-Surgery and Injury Protection
MediPaw protective boots serve as a convenient solution for safeguarding our pets’ paws during the critical recovery period after surgery or injury. These products act as a barrier, preventing pets from directly accessing and aggravating the affected areas. By minimising contact, the boots promote faster healing and reduce the risk of infection, helping our pets return to their active and joyful selves more quickly. MediPaw protective boots are versatile and can be used in various situations. Whether your pet requires protection during restricted outdoor activities, post-surgery recovery, or wound management, these products cater to a wide range of needs.
Comfort and Mobility
A key advantage of MediPaw protective boots is their emphasis on comfort and enhanced mobility. Unlike traditional post-surgical methods, which often include an IV bag to keep dressing dry, these innovative products provide a more pleasant experience for our pets. The boots are designed to fit snugly while allowing natural movement and flexibility, enabling pets to walk without discomfort during supervised exercise sessions, ensuring a more pleasant recovery journey for our furry friends.
Prevention of Lick Granulomas and Infection
Pets often resort to excessive licking or biting, which can lead to lick granulomas or secondary infections, hindering the healing process. MediPaw protective boots are particularly effective in preventing such self-inflicted harm. These boots cover the wound or surgical site, acting as a physical barrier and discouraging pets from accessing it. By minimising the risk of licking and biting, these boots reduce the chances of complications, allowing for smoother and faster recovery.
Versatility and Ease of Use
MediPaw protective boots are versatile and suitable for various situations, whether it’s post-surgery recovery, injury management, or a physical barrier. Constructed using high-quality materials, the boots feature adjustable straps for a secure fit, ensuring they stay in place during restricted activities while providing optimal protection. Additionally, they offer excellent protection for pets recovering from paw surgeries, wounds, or infections, ensuring faster healing and minimising the risk of re-injury. They are easy to put on and take off, simplifying the recovery process for both pets and their owners.
Hygienic and Easy to Maintain
Maintaining proper hygiene during the recovery phase is crucial to prevent infections and ensure a smooth healing process. MediPaw boots are designed with this in mind. The materials used are easy to clean, and machine washable, making it convenient for pet owners to maintain a hygienic environment for their recovering pets. By keeping the boots clean and germ-free, owners can promote a healthier recovery process.
Need help choosing the right boot? We offer 3 designs to cover all healing stages and environments:
Soft Bandage Protection
Effortless outdoor protection
The soft bandage boot provides traction and protection so pets can go outside comfortably while keeping their bandage clean and dry.
Constructed with a waterproof, breathable nylon shell for superior protection from rain, snow, mud, dirt, and morning dew.
Hard cast, splint, or thick bandage protection
Longer lasting protection
The rugged X-Boot provides optimum traction and long-lasting protection so pets can go outside comfortably while keeping their bandage clean and dry.
Constructed with a durable, moulded bottom to accommodate thick dressings, wider splints, or patients with difficult gaits on difficult terrain.
Waterproof, breathable material easily slides over a cast or bandage and adjustable Velcro straps cinch easily at the narrowest part of the leg for a secure fit. Upper drawstring closure keeps the boot in place, and prevents urine or rain from getting in through the top.
Protect pet wounds without bandages
The Healing Slim Boot features a soft, antimicrobial lining to protect wounds that are in the end stages of healing. Naturally wicking bamboo and silver fabric improves healing by reducing moisture and bacterial threats.
Protects wounds while indoors
Breathable nylon shell protects from excessive licking and irritation. The soft anti-skid bottom provides traction on slippery surfaces.
*We recommend using a Rugged X-Boot to cover the healing slim boot during inclement weather.
Directions for use:
- Monitor the wound at least 2 to 3 times per day (more often in warmer climates) for signs of infection: foul odour, swelling, redness, pain, heat, discharge.
- Monitor boot for slippage, wet/damp boot or lining, chafing.
* Tip: Turn the healing slim boot inside out to spot clean or throw in the washing machine. Be sure to hang dry and keep a second healing slim boot handy for use during drying time.
Simple Paw Measurement Guide
“Poppydog can now safely go out come rain or shine, with a dry bandage, no repeated mid-walk battles to replace bags and I know her bandage will survive the weekend until Monday’s appointment. Best of all, she’s not bothered about it because it fits! So I highly recommend the Medipaw medical boots too”
We understand first-hand the challenges of dealing with paw issues and injuries. MediPaw boots offer an effective solution. Tilly, for instance, faced an uncomfortable allergic reaction to cut grass in our field, requiring her back feet to be protected during walks. Meanwhile, Toby often goes through phases of excessive paw licking and we use these boots to interrupt the cycle.
MediPaw protective boots are a game-changer in pet care, offering an array of benefits for dogs and cats. They provide comfort, care, and convenience for our furry companions during the critical recovery phase following surgery or injury. By offering protection, comfort, and mobility, these innovative products contribute to a smoother and more pleasant recovery experience. With MediPaw, you can ensure your pets’ well-being and make their journey to full health as comfortable as possible. This versatility, combined with their user-friendly design, makes MediPaw products a valuable addition to any pet owner’s toolkit.
MediPaw boots help your pets recover from surgeries, injuries and other wounds easily and comfortably. They are not designed for ongoing or extended use. Boots, in general, should be worn under supervision for bathroom breaks and short walks and should be removed frequently to check the boot inside to ensure there is no moisture near the wound.
