Help your dog get a doggone Grip!
Are you searching for the solution to your dog slipping on floors? Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips are natural rubber rings that provide instant traction on dog toenails. Designed for senior and special needs dogs, ToeGrips stop dog sliding on floors and stairs, such as hardwood, laminate and tile.
ToeGrips offer a natural, drug-free solution for the age-old problem of dog slipping on hard-surface floors. These assistive devices are a revolutionary new tool in the multimodal approach to pain and mobility management for senior and special needs dogs.
Designed for senior, arthritic, and special needs dogs, Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips are the only product on the market that use dogs’ natural bio-mechanics—enabling traction through their toenails.
ToeGrips provide instant traction and confidence for dogs who struggle on hard-surface floors and stairs—such as hardwood, tile, linoleum, marble, etc.
A dog’s natural mechanism to gain traction is to flex the paws and dig in the nails, which act like cleats on earthen terrain. But on hard floors, hard nails can’t get any grip.
Young, fit, healthy dogs can typically compensate for their lack of traction on hard surfaces. Senior, arthritic, and special needs dogs often cannot. A smarter traction solution for dogs would use this principle—traction through the toenails—in its design.
ToeGrips are that smarter, nail-based traction mechanism that work with your dog’s biomechanics. ToeGrips fit onto your dog’s nails and the non slip material grips the floor in a way that your dog’s hard nails cannot.
With this unique patent-pending approach, here’s how ToeGrips work to help senior dogs, arthritic dogs, and other dogs who struggle on slippery surfaces:
– Improved mobility and stability
– Increased confidence
– Reduced risk of slip-and-fall injuries
– Plus, you no longer have to consider covering your whole house in mats and runners. Throw rugs are gone with ToeGrips!
What other advantages do ToeGrips have over socks or boots?
– ToeGrips don’t cover the dog’s whole paw. A dog’s toes contain numerous proprioceptive receptors, which feed information to the brain about the body’s spatial position. When the paws are covered by boots or socks, this information is altered.
– Dogs sweat through their paws. ToeGrips leave the paws uncovered to breathe.
– ToeGrips are designed for semi-continuous indoor/outdoor use. Unlike boots, they do not need to be removed daily.
– Because they do not contact sensitive tissue (like the paw pads or skin), most dogs tolerate ToeGrips very well and do not seem to even notice them.
