Question Boots to prevent cuts on ice?

Not sure if this would be considered health issue but our Tux is having plenty of cuts running on ice covered snow surface. Can anyone recommend booties that will actually work and are not PITA to put on ?

Thanks

I know you are in Ontario but is this the sort of thing you are after? I know they are a little expensive for what they are but they seem pretty smart!

I imagine they'd work with you for sizing, they usually get a standing paw size etc.

A place I've used a lot for leg wraps has boots as well:

They were wonderful to work with.

I haven't had much success with boots, but I really like both Musher's Secret and Tuf-foot for protecting feet in the snow and ice.

You can go to your local pet store, they will have several different boots to choose from, and you can try them on in the store

These look great and the price is reasonable - Thanks!
