Using Purrdy Paws to care for an Older Dog

Purrdy Paws soft nail caps can be a great solution to improve the quality of life of older dogs.Older dogs are often prone to slipping, especially on hardwood and waxed floors.These slips may cause injury, household damage, and cause your dog to become nervous.Naturally every pet owner wants to care for their dog and avoid this situation, and Purrdy Paws can help you do that !

Purrdy Paws can help reduce Injuries and Accidents



  • Dogs can be injured by slipping and falling on smooth flooring. While laminates, tiles and hardwood floors look great, and they're easy to keep clean, but your dog's paws aren't designed to walk on such smooth hard surfaces. This can lead to slipping, sliding and falling – and potentially serious injury.

  • While this can affect any dog, this can become a problem for your dog as they get older, even if it wasn’t an issue in their youth.Older dogs may develop joint or hip issues, arthritis, and muscle weakness.This will cause them to have trouble compensating for the slipperiness of hard wood and other surfaces.

  • Purrdy Paws are made with strong vinyl that will create better friction with slippery surfaces than a dog’s nails.This extra grip has improved the lifestyle of thousands of aging dogs, and helped them enjoy their homes again.

Nail and Paw Damage

  • A dog’s nails will naturally grow rougher and thicker as a dog ages.This change of nail texture, as well as growth changes, can cause a dog’s nails to cause irritation by rubbing against the soft flesh of their paw.
  • Older dogs can also experience changes to the way they move.As dogs age, they can compensate for joint and muscle issues by walking differently.Some dogs may develop neurological issues that can lead to foot dragging. These can cause nail damage due to extra force and friction being focused on the nails.
  • Purrdy Paws soft nail caps for dogs act as a safe barrier for all of these situations.Purrdy Paws nail caps will act as a soft barrier between your dog’s nails and their skin, preventing scraping, rashes, and other injuries.Purrdy Paws nail caps will also act as armor for your dogs nails, so that the caps will absorb the wear and tear, protecting your dog.
