Our senior dog struggles with getting up and also with sliding on wood floors. Our veterinarian recommended PawFriction and we are thrilled that it is working. It can be difficult for one person to apply it, especially if your senior dog is a bit unstable, but with two people it is fairly simple. We trim the hair between the pads a little to keep from getting glue onto the hair. We reapply about every two weeks as she is sliding again at the end of two weeks as it begins to wear off. We’re thankful for finding something that makes her life happier!
