|Has anyone ever purchased a dog ramp for their dog who struggles to get up and down stairs?
I had a senior dog several years ago (he passed away last year at the ripe old age of 16) and in his late years he would often fall or be very afraid about going up and down stairs (even just a couple stairs up and down from the front door).
We tried rough edged paper so he wouldn't slip on the steps, but I don't know why I never thought to buy a ramp - has anyone tried this?
Since starting my dog care blog, I wrote a guide to dog stairs/ramps for senior dogs, since it's something I wish I had read when I had my senior dog.
Note: I think ramps are better for dogs who can't get up and down stairs, while dog stairs are really more for preventive care, since it's not great for doggie joints to dog all that jumping on and off sofas/beds/cars, etc. The stairs are probably also good for smaller dogs.
