Measuring the nails is an essential, one-time process for each patient. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may quickly fall off or migrate into the nail bed. For best results, nails should be appropriately trimmed before sizing and applying 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.

Illustrated instructions are located inside each package.
*A millimeter ruler and size chart are on the back of each package.
