Before resorting to booties, the vet offered these suggestions for pet dogs:
The first suspect on the list of best dog booties is from a known dog company, Ultra Paws. These flexible, water-resistant dog shoes are made with great traction, which prevents skidding and sliding (these dog boots are especially great for senior dogs and pets with hip conditions).

PAWZ Dog Boots - Waterproof Dog Boots -
There are winter boots to insulate your dog’s feet from cold, damp, ice, snow, and salt; summer boots to shield your pup’s paws from the heat of pavement and asphalt, and hiking boots to protect him from the dangers of sharp rock, brambles, burrs, cacti, and foxtails. They can be used to give a tentative dog traction on slippery floors, to prevent scratches on hardwood floors and snags on carpets, and to deter digging. They can prevent chewing and licking of sores, bandages and medications on the dog’s feet. There are even rubber boots that purport to keep your dog’s feet dry in rainy weather.More dog supplies companies are investing into developing the best dog boot concepts that ensures the safety and health of paws. This trend has picked up particularly at the time when about the damage that dogs' paws receive when walking in winter or summer when it's too cold or too hot for the pet.After looking at the careful workmanship that went into the preceding products, the first glance at the Nylon Dog Boots made by Scott Pet Products, of Rockville, Indiana (and sold by Valley Vet Supply/Direct Pet Superstore), was a bit of a shock. This is partly because of the product’s simplistic design; the boot is nothing more than a Cordura nylon mitten with a Velcro strap. But the crude look of the product comes from a reversed seam on the upper part of the boot. Such a visible ragged edge and quadruple-sewn seam looks crude. Actually, it makes sense, from the standpoint of the dog whose foot and ankle end up inside that boot. The reversal of the seam also forms a unique pleat at the back of the boot that allows the excess material to fold rather than gather or bunch. It’s an unattractive but comfortable solution to the problem of a seam that could otherwise rub the dog’s leg.In the below list of five best dog booties, we focused mostly on the quality to price ratio rather than the most popular brand (which would be Ruffwear dog boots, of course; see at the bottom). However, with the recession coming closer, many pet owners want to save a few bucks, and there's definitely great options of boots for dogs that stay on and don't break your bank.
