The Wound Boot is a breathable boot with elastic sides to cover a bandage or cast if needed. The Spandex sides allow for a range of healing stages - expands to cover bandage or cast and reduces when bandage is removed for continual healing protection. It protects the wound area while healing and restricts licking or chewing at wounds.
