Juno had her first rehab consult Friday and in addition the many helpful things we learned during the appointment we also learned about the WagWellies doggie crocs that the the furry friend who arrived after us was wearing. Our rehab therapist recommends them as they offer great tread - especially on slippery surfaces. And as a bonus for us tripawd parents - you can buy just one (or three!) if that's all you need! They have versions with and without holes to suit your climate/dog.

Bonus: Just wanted to offer a plug for doing a rehab consult (something you'll often hear our hosts around here recommending.) We just went two days ago, learned so much, and have lots of exercises and massages to keep June moving and grooving at her best and to give us fun things to do together. (If you haven't done a rehab consult yet for your tripawd - give it a go. Its soooo informative and the Tripawds community offers financial assistance if needed!)

Oooh you keep finding all the interesting new gear out there. I hadn't seen these and honestly might have disregarded them just based on the design, if you hadn't have mentioned your therapist recommended them. If you try them please let us know how they work on Juno.

YAY for the rehab visit! I'm so happy you found it valuable. Thanks for the promo for the program.

Hi! Curious if you tried those pup crocs and how you found them, if so? Hope Juno is well!

Hi Emily, Juno's doing great. I haven't tried them yet but did see them in action on the other dog and they looked nicely grippy and went up the dog's ankle (a Rottweiler) in a way that looked as though they would stay on firmly. I'll be back at the rehab place this Friday and can ask for more details about them.

For the mo' I've been springing for some stair treads and rehab gear, so no footwear just yet. 🙂 However, my workplace floor is very slippery so I might get one for her hind leg when I start bringing her there again.

Hope your pupper is doing well - let me know what you think if you get to try the Wellies first!
