Do you stick them to the stairs or just use their natural stickiness? They really lay where they're told, which is great. I doubt you'd need to adhere them with anything.
From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

Poor Rumbles Finchy sends a hug to him. I don't have any advice to add, it all sounds really good.

Chili Dawg crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 8/30/2011 & is now pain free. He was my heart dog, and I miss him every day.

i use it on sam's feet, since he's out in the wet and muck so much, and he gets 'chapped' feet. don't put on very much - a little goes a long way. you just want to kinda seal the pad, not grease it up.... hope this helps.

Life is good, so very, very good!!! Gayle enjoyed each and every moment of each and every wonderful day (naps included). She left this world December 12, 2011 – off on a new adventure.

Yes, a little goes along way! I used it on Maggie because for some reason her pads were very dry and cracked. For us it was a week or two before her pads really got more supple and helped her traction
You also have to rub it in really well.
