    Default Gel shoes for dogs?

    I am watching the tv show Doctors. There's a Vet with a bulldog on and he has made gel shoes for her. He claims they help with easing hip displasia. Thoughts on orthopedic shoes for dogs??

    In theory I think they are great but not sure if they would be safe. I think you will definitely have to have your bully used to shoes as a small pup so they won't bother them. I can see a nosey, fussy bully eating the shoe and ending up in the emergency room.

    Ya as much as they chew I would think theses would be way up on the list of bothersome things to chew up. Chihuahua don't even like shoes. Lol

    This made me laugh remembering when I first got Bulldozer and decided to buy him dog snow boots - they keep the ice and snow from getting in between the pads. We lived Maine at the time so you can imagine - it was cold as ...... Well I ordered some and got them in, all excited that he'd be able to run and play a little more in the snow and ice. NOPE - I would strap them on him and he would drop like a rock, feet up in the air and just make his chewbacca noises until I took them off. Sometimes he would just freeze on his back with his feet in the air. I tried once to bribe him into walking and he did the funniest "march" ever - lifting his feet as far off the ground as he could. "Goose stepping" over to the treat before flopping on his back again and assuming the dead deer stance. I still have the shoes - but never got him to agree to wear them and actually be a dog.
    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.
