Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for creating better back end traction for Pookie. To say that she is in her "Golden Years" is a bit hard to swallow. We still count our lucky stars she is with us... but it is really hard some days to see her struggling to get around.
Anyway, for lack of a better description, she currently looks like Bambi on ice when she is eating. I have tried elevating her food dish, but something about eating makes her totally tipsy. Her back legs just slip and slide all over the place. Her back legs are actually in the splits sometimes. My husband thought we should "moisturize her paws"... but I seriously doubt that would help. I have winter boots, but she is even more slippy when she wears them, although I thought if I replaced the soles of the boots with something even stickier it might help. I have also seen little balloon boots (like they are made of balloons)... but when I asked the manufacturer, they said that you shouldn't leave them on for long because it messes with the temperature regulation.
Anyway, any ideas out there to help my old girl with not falling all over the place??
