Hello! I have a chow chow
back home and he's been having issues with walking
around our house.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: My dog has been having difficulty walking ever since he was about 5 months old. He was fine before walking on our polished wood and marble floors but started slipping and sliding on the floors suddenly and now he can't even stand on the floors. We've been getting by through doggie boots and socks but they haven't been very helpful as they have caused yeast infection
in his paws
from sweating and constantly come off, also they don't fit his large paws very well as most seem to be for dogs with leaner legs
. The most successful one that helps him grip would be PAWS rubber boots but because of the tight rubber top, it ripped into his leg and cause him a massive cut and infection that nearly lost him his paws. We don't know what to do now as he has completely no grip on our floors but walks fine when he's on the grass. Unfortunately due to the very hot weather in our country he can't go outside much as we fear he might get a heatstroke. Is there anything we can do about this as we are desperate to get him walking INSIDE the house to exercise as the vet said that he might have inherited a joint and back problem.
JA: The veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: he's currently 2 years old and weighs at 20 kg and can't walk! So you can imagine we carry him everywhere when he's inside the house almost!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about your dog?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** can see him try to walk on his instagram page if that helps - @chubichowchow any help is appreciated :)!
