Has anybody used these Colorfulhouse non-slip socks? Rear amp Miss Kitty is doing well indoors with Toe Grips, but for some reason she is slipping outside on our wooden deck. I’m thinking a sock on her hind leg might be a good idea.

We'll add these to our list of recommended traction solutions for Tripawds.
Traction socks are a great way to help prevent slipping on slick floors, and an inexpensive way to see if Tripawds might tolerate wearing boots. Power Paws are a good indoor sock, but these look suitable for short term outdoor use. Thanks!

Neither of my rear amp Tripawds would or will tolerate anything on their feet. I should probably work with Elly now so in case the need arises in the future I can use something.
My quad pug Tani had severe mobility issues as she aged and I tried non-skid socks with her but I did not have good luck with them. The would slide on her feet just enough to cause more issues than the solved. I had to resort to yoga mats everywhere on hard surfaces. I should add that Tani did sometimes drag her feet which didn't help the socks stay on.
When I took Tani to the vet I used PAWZ booties otherwise she couldn't walk on the slippery floors. While PAWZ are great for short term use they can't be left on for long periods of time.
It's interesting that she is slipping on a wood deck- I haven't run into that. I hope you find a good solution for Miss K!

Eurydice wore custom made booties (her paws were far too big for anything that exists in the market) but only when we were out in rough terrain.
At home, I made paths with carpet and rubber underlay underneath for extra protection.
Clare mentioned some waterproof socks made for humans but I cannot remember the make, hopefully she will pop in here and let you know the details.
Kiss and cuddles 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
