Hello Ro, Thanks for steering me in the right direction, that does seem prudent and I value your much professional opinion. Thank you. You have NOOOO idea how long I’ve been searching for these. I purchased the Nikki boot…lots, it was like going hill walking with slippers on, worse than useless, he is a 10 stone dog. I constructed all sorts of boots from various materials on my trusty old sewing machine, Where was Woolworths when I needed them? I consulted vets and cobblers. Then I goggled “Orthopedic Dog Boots” Walla.. Lo and behold there they were. A miracle. The universe was there for me that day. I was contemplating curtailing his walks because he was bleeding so badly, poor lamb. We are patiently awaiting the arrival of the “magic boots” Cheers Linda
