Medipaw Boots & Suits Fill Clinical Needs in Veterinary Medicine

The story of Medipaw

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, they provided a used iv bag, as nothing else was available.

Our dog’s leg became infected as a result, requiring additional surgeries. Each time, the technicians dispensed a used iv 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.

  • We love MediPaws at Pawsitive Steps Rehab because they help keep our patient’s paws, orthotic devices and bandages dry in wet and snowy weather - hey, it happens around here in Michigan! This is Roscoe, who wears a L carpus-paw orthotic device to help support his L wrist due to severe immune-mediated arthritis. With all of his hair, his orthotic would get wet and stay wet without his MediPaw.
