    Default Does anyone know where to find...

    My littlest one has been having hip problems and the surgical vet does not want to do surgery unless absolutely necessary since we are probably looking at a total hip replacement if we go that route. We are working with a physical therapist and she suggested getting stickers that you can put on the pads of their feet to help him gain more traction on the woods floors. Unfortuantely there is not an inch of carpet in my house and we are hoping to help him avoid slipping and sliding and possible knocking the hip out again. I have searched on the web but don't really know what exactly you would call them and "dog stickers" is not doing the trick! Anyone have any insight?

    Thanks!

    I remember reading a recent post about someone on this board applying a wax or cream to their dogs feet and it helped with the issue of sliding on wood floors. For some reason I thought it was Cathy M, but I'm not sure...does anyone else remember this post? It sounds like there is a product out there that would accomplish what you're looking to do, now if I could only remember who wrote about it!

    I found it! I put my office manager on the case too and she can find anything. There are pads and wax so I am going to order both and let him decide which he prefers. Thanks again!

    We have a lot of wood floors and our little one charges around on them like something posessed! I bought the pad wax as I was so concerned that she may cause herself an injury. Unfortunately I barely noticed any difference and gave up using it. I just ended up putting plenty of rugs on the floors, but I must say, I was really disappointed that the wax didn't work. If you have more luck with it than I did, please let me know

    I have wood floors too! I tried the wax, I think it was called Musher's wax. Anyway, it really didn't work for me either. At least I didn't see any difference.

    Charlie is usually laying on me when I'm at home, but it would be nice to get him something when he wants to run around.

    Keep us posted on the paw pads. Those look interesting. I hope it works!

    I'd be interested in the wax if anyone can post a link for me please. Dylan never slipped on our floors even when running around until recently.
