FOR SMALL- AND MEDIUM-SIZED DOGS AND CATS WHO "KNUCKLE," OR WALK ON THE TOPS OF THEIR FEET
When pets start to lose the use of their back legs, for whatever reason, they often begin to "knuckle," or walk on the tops of their feet. For some dogs and cats, a boot is a good solution to those problems, and Epiks dog boots are among the best when it comes to protecting the feet of pets who knuckle. These hard-soled boots are especially sturdy, and we've found that some dogs in the early stages of degenerative myelopathy can actually place their feet more accurately when wearing these boots. PRICE LISTED IS PER BOOT.
NOTE: Please be aware that boots may worsen your pet's coordination problem. Although some special needs dogs are helped by boots, others experience decreased coordination and proprioception with boots on. So if you buy boots, recognize that they may make your dog less coordinated. In that case, just return the boots you buy from Scout's Store unused and we'll refund your money.
Perfect for pets who are: suffering from degenerative myelopathy or other neuro-degenerative diseases, arthritis, disk disease, such as IVDD; recovering from injury or surgery; paralyzed; weak in the rear limbs; hikers; living in snowy climates.
