What natural substance can I use that has a tacky feel to put on my dogs paws that is non toxic to dogs? Answered
My dog had a spinal op,and was recovering nicely.
I have polished floorboards that are an absolute nightmare for him to walk around on.
The list of remedies I have tried are endless.
Dog socks,boots,shoes,mats,balloons etc.I have spent a small fortune with no luck. We have non slip mats around but I can't cover the whole house in rubber mats.
I've trimmed his nails short,and the fur between his toes,but I've noticed his paw pads are really dry.
I'm trying to formulate something that I can put on his paws that has a tacky feel.
I'm no scientist but I've wracked my brain to come up with a solution that is easy to make and not toxic.
It has to be something that doesn't taste fantastic because he'll lick it off.
As a sample I tried some tacky hair wax..which just gave him a little grip,but it's not what I'm looking for.
I know beeswax is sticky,but i think it needs to be mixed with something.I had a feel of surfboard wax,but it didn't have enough tackiness for what I want.I know honey is sticky but don't think I want that all over my floor.Also pine sap is sticky too.
I guess i'm looking for something that feels like those silicone non slip dots you can buy that is safe for animals?
