Promotes Healing and Recovery

Protect patient wounds without bandages

Facilitates healing

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.

Going outdoors?

*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 odor, 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.

Vet and Customer Stories

Our 14 month old pup Elsaw had surgery on both her front legs.  We were despairing at how to keep the dressings dry (we tried everything we could think of) when I found your website.  I asked our vets to order me 2 of them.  The Medipaw boots are proving invaluable!  We tell everyone about them and have encouraged our vets to recommend them too.

My Medipaw boot protects my toes, is waterproof, has adjustable velcro, and can be machine washed. Mom was so excited to find a boot wide enough and tall enough for my whole cast!  The Ziploc bag and ponytail holder wouldn't work for all 10 weeks, especially during winter and spring.

Medipaw boots are awesome!! My little guy broke his leg a few weeks back. we got the boot when he got the cast, and it has been awesome for the winter. The boot stays on great!

Medipaw makes absolutely fantastic post-surgical protective garments for all kinds of surgery sites - not just feet!  And they’ll brand it with your practice’s name!  Great company and product.

Your product has made our dog’s wound management so much easier.  Way better than shopping bags and easier for her to walk in too. Thank you!

We use them all the time for our post-op cases. They keep the bandage dry and it’s easy application makes owners more compliant.  Great fit every time.

As a veterinarian the medipaw protective boot is the best option I have ever used to keep a bandage clean and dry. I wish I had known about it sooner! It’s been a game changer for my own pet and significantly has made Leo’s recovery more manageable. I can’t wait to try their other recovery products for my patients.

AWESOME PRODUCT!  The only secure paw protector booty on the market. Comes high enough with sufficient velcro strapping and top tie to reliably keep out snow & wet which ruins paw healing.  By using it IMMEDIATELY after 1st vet visit you can shorten healing time by a week. Thus you save more re-bandaging vet costs from having wet bandages. Can't recommend it enough! At 8,000' here in Boulder, CO. with more snow forecast, what would we have done with a recycled short plastic IV bag foot covering?!

Frequent questions

Need additional help? Please contact us.

My patient is a large breed. Is it possible to require a smaller size than expected?

Yes, many larger dogs wear a smaller size. The width of paw with bandage varies amongst all breeds and sizes.

If the healing slim boot is for indoor use how can I protect the wound while my patient goes outdoors?

As it is designed for indoors and short trips outdoors, we suggest wearing our Rugged X-Boot over the healing boot to ensure waterproof protection during inclement weather.

What types of wounds can the healing slim boot be used for?

The healing slim boot protects all wounds that are in the end stages of healing, such as lick granulomas, interdigital cysts, burns, puncture wounds, lacerations, hot spots, degloving, excessive licking and irritation.

How does the healing slim stay on?

Velcro® straps and an upper drawstring keep the boot securely on.

Is the boot washable?

Yes, the boot is washable in cool water on a gentle cycle. However, hang to dry. We recommend having a spare healing slim boot handy to use during the laundry cycle.
