Yea people always laugh when I say he needs shoes but hey he can't go in the grass. I can't help it! He has a lot of allergies. I just say he is
allergic to life lol He is a sweet boy but it took us over a year to finally get his allergies under control. Our vet is amazing here and he is just
so good to our boy. The last place we went to was nice but they were so big they didn't listen very much. I always felt hurried there where our
current vet will call you personally anytime you call! It's nice!
He takes allergy meds but he still can't be in the grass, per the vet. He takes 3 pills a day and gets a cortisone shot as needed.
He has been in the grass the whole time we've had him and we could never figure out what was up with his paws until we moved and went to our new vet,
who is amazing! As soon as I stopped letting him go in the grass his paws cleared up and he is not chewing them or crying. They look normal for
OH that brand looks promising! I can also pick different sizes. Thanks!!
When I did walk him it was 3 times a day. I would only let him go in the grass on the side closest to the fence because it is the shortest. He
doesn't play in it or sit in it so that isn't an issue. He CAN go in my moms grass. She doesn't have the grass he is allergic to, St. Augustine
grass which the vet says is a common allergy for dogs. My mom also doesn't treat their yard with chemicals so he is fine there. I take him to her
house any time i go and he runs out and loves it.
I will definitely be checking Ruffwear out! I like that they have smaller sizes! His back paw is an inch smaller in each direction so being able to
choose the size is perfect!
