Dogs and slippery floors can be a recipe for disaster.

I have one little poodle that I groom who loves to run and slide on the slippery floors, unfortunately he often injures himself doing so.

Grooming always includes an underfoot shave, which not only prevents painful matting between the pads of the foot, but also helps with grip on slippery surfaces.

Luckily, Obi has not done any long-lasting damage, however there are ample stories of dogs siding and tearing cruciate ligaments, a very expensive injury to repair.

So keep an eye out for those times when your pooch seems to lose his grip, and book him in for, at the very least, a wash, dry & tidy and make sure he gets a grip!
