Medipaw Boots and Suits Fill Clinical Need in Veterinary Medicine

When discharging our dog after an emergency arthrodesis our veterinary referral staff instructed us to keep our dog’s bandaged splint dry. To that end–and to our dismay– they provided a used iv bag, as nothing else was available.

Medipaw Protective Boot for DogsUnfortunately, the leg became infected, requiring additional surgeries. Each time, the technicians dispensed a used i.v. bag, and each time the veterinarian encouraged us to create a boot. So, we researched waterproof and breathable fabrics, durable, non-skid bottoms, hook and loop closures, and launched the Medipaw® protective boot at the AVMA in 2004.

A few years later, when another dog underwent surgery for a hemangiosarcoma and all we had was an old t-shirt to protect the incision that didn’t do the job, we developed the two-piece suit. Thanks to these case studies, Medivet products provides clinicians and their customers with wound management products specifically designed for dogs and cats.
