How Toe Grips work
Dr Buzby’s ToeGrips™ are made of natural nonslip rubber material that grips the floor in a way your dog’s hard toenails cannot.
The cylinders slide onto a dog’s weight-bearing toenails, adhere by friction. ToeGrips create contact with the ground at the GripZone, just behind the bottom of the nail tip and provide instant traction for dogs on hard-surface floors and stairs, such as wood, tile, linoleum, marble, etc.
Dr Buzby’s ToeGrips™ are the only product on the market that use dogs’ normal biomechanics, by providing traction through their toenails. With this unique approach, ToeGrips provide improved mobility and stability, increased confidence, and proprioceptive stimulus.
Here’s how ToeGrips work to help senior dogs, arthritic dogs, and other dogs who struggle on slippery surfaces:
Dr Buzby’s ToeGripsTM are changing dog’s lives with these benefits:
- Improved mobility and stability
- Increased confidence
- Reduced risk of slip-fall dog injuries
For ToeGrips’ safety and success:
- Be sure ToeGrips are right for your dog.
ToeGrips were designed for senior, rehabilitating, and special needs dogs. Dogs that scuff/drag their paws may require affixing the ToeGrips onto the nails. ToeGrips are not intended for healthy, active dogs.
- Select the right size.
Measuring your dog’s nails is essential for correct sizing. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may fail to help your dog, ride up the nail, or quickly fall off. Download our guide here or watch the video tutorial.
- Apply to create the GripZone.
They need to be in the right place to work! See the pictures in each package to remind you. Download our guide here or watch our video tutorial.
- Monitor daily, replace when worn.
ToeGrips occasionally can shift up the nail towards the nail bed and cause harm to the skin. Be sure to check your dog’s ToeGrips daily to ensure proper positioning.
ToeGrips will eventually wear down and need to be replaced. Your dog’s size, gait, and environment will determine how long they last. On average, ToeGrips last 4-8weeks.
Sometimes, you may need to add a drop of superglue to keep them in place. Watch our video tutorial.
