How to measure your dog’s nails for ToeGrips:
Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the midshaft of the toenail.
Step 2:Hold the floss, wrapped around the nail circumference, with one hand.
Step 3: Use a Sharpie® to mark across both pieces of floss. This will generate two points.
Step 4: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.
Step 5: Repeat for all weight-bearing nails on one front and one back paw.
Step 6: Based on the range of measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart to select the proper size. Occasionally, a dog may require a combination of two sizes.
