ClayPaws are a convenient way to make lasting keepsakes of pets' paws, hooves or claws. The prints help memorialize pets who have died and are tangible symbols of veterinarians' heartfelt commitment to delivering high-quality client care.

Clay must be kneaded before print-making and then baked to make the impression permanent.
