Re: Jiffy Grip fabric for dog boots

I was actually looking for tough fabric to sew on the seat of Dolly's diapers to make them last longer. You would think something that goes on the bottom of slippers would be durable. Do not know if the dots would create drag (making mobility harder). Did not find navy blue but there is another bran...

Built in safety action grip backing to prevent accidental falls. Sew on bottoms of kid's pajama feet or soles of slippers. Sew o...

Diaper wear and tear

This is a diaper, or should I say was? Dolly bounces on her bottom and goes out and explores the back yard as well as the house. Her diapers naturally wear through from friction on the ground bounce-bounce-bounce as the mileage builds up. But this diaper does not look too worn out because the denim ...

Re: Miralax and lactulose

:mop: is right! :scrub: P.S. I have the perfect pad for cleaning off dried syrup. It's called Scotch Brite Scrub and Wipe. It's a very thin sponge on one side with Dobie pad fabric on the other for scrubbing, and it's big. They used to sell them at one of the building supply stores but they don't se...

Re: Miralax and lactulose

So...the continuing story of the lactulose. My cat is on it twice a day. She's on so much that I have to put it into her mouth with 2 squirts, not one, because the dose is too much for one mouthful. I put her on the kitchen counter and give her one squirt. Wait for her to swallow it. Then give her t...

Re: The Cat's Meow Rescue: Special need cats and kittens

It pops up a little paragraph if I hover over a picture without clicking, but not every time. Here is what I get if I hover my cursor on the picture of the 2 kitties. But then, I'll try it again and it may or may not work. I am on a PC, don't know if this works on other kinds of devices. Mouseover.P...

DogsWithDisabilities diaper idea

https://dogswithdisabilities.com/diapers.htm This website has a great idea for disposable diapers for a 120 lb dog. They use a Depends brief with an overnight maxi pad inside. They keep the diaper from falling down by using an elastic strap designed to keep bedsheets in place. The whole page is wort...

Re: Boots with wheels...Roller boots?

Yeah, I can't quite figure it out either. The axels are so thin that it seems like they might bend easily, but it must be working and solving a problem. So interesting. I wish the family could be here to explain it, because this might be a solution to a problem some people encounter, and it might be...

Boots with wheels...Roller boots?

I saw this among the photos on the HandicappedPets Facebook page where you vote for the 2021 calendar contest. Look at the boots on his front paws. They have wheels! I haven't found who sells them yet. Or they may have been some no-knuckle boots that were adapted by adding wheels, but if so, it look...

Re: Engine hoist for a heavy dog

I'm thinking you might get more stability with the trapeze, but you could probably jury rig the leveler so it isn't able to tip on either end. You absolutely want the dog to stay level while lifting. If he doesn't, it would be uncomfortable, and you might also risk his harness shifting, depending on...

Re: Engine hoist for a heavy dog

I just found something I've never seen before. It is a hoist with a load leveler. The load leveler looks like it might work in place of making a trapeze. You would just need to attach some hooks to it. This saves half the work of making the hoist. Also the whole package of hoist + leveler is very af...
