Sticky Pawz helps dogs who struggle to walk

Product :    Sticky Pawz
Company :  HolisticVet
Category :  Pet Accessories

Competition Entry Rules Apply*

This is a unique product, and one that would benefit so many dogs.

  • Reduce sore paws: Dogs who suffer from damage to their paws when they go on beach walks.  Sticky Pawz helps to keep the sand out and chafing to a minimum.
  • No slipping: Dogs with only 3 legs struggle to hold their ground on slippery floors. Sticky Pawz will help them to be more stable.
  • Quality of life: Old dogs that don’t have the strength any more to keep their legs together when walking on a slippery floor, will have the ability to walk a little easier.

Value : R190.00.

Features :

  • Available in 7 sizes
  • Sold in sets of four
  • Biodegradable, re-usable, light weight, non-slip rubber socks/boots for dogs.
  • Provides traction for dogs with weak limbs (e.g. arthritis, neurological weakness)
  • Ideal for those pets slipping on floors e.g. tiles, wood, laminate.
  • Thin enough for your dog to feel the ground, providing a sense of security. Unlike boots/shoes which can be cumbersome and make it difficult for your pet to walk
  • Ideal for dogs with neurological weakness and arthritis

We have the most gorgeous, lovable three legged Scottie Cross. He is missing a back leg.

Despite this he gets around admirably and it really doesn’t seem to hinder him much. We frequent the beach and he races around like any normal dog. However when going for long beach walks he suffers from chafe on his single back paw pad. The added pressure on one little point is obviously the main cause.

Before a lengthy beach holiday I visited Natasha at the Westville Vet. She introduced me to Sticky Pawz. One Sticky Paw on his back leg does the trick and he is able to run around on the beach for longer and without discomfort. He does not mind me putting the Sticky Pawz on or taking it off, he evidently realises the benefit.

Thanks Natasha for the recommendation!
