So you're in search of pet stairs, steps or ramps. You have a reason to buy one, but not sure which option fits your dog better. Thing is most dog owners are often confused about what to buy. Ramps for dogs on the go not only help our beloved pet get in and out of vehicles, they also provide them with long-term protection against wear and tear on their joints -- and that's the real value!
For our canine friends, arthritis is a common health issue. And it seems that if we can do anything to delay or even avoid its onset, it's a worthwhile proposition. This is when it comes to our pets avoiding pain and us avoiding the resulting vet bills!
Dogs are so agile in their youth and usually free of joint problems so ramps for dogs are often overlooked. We never thought that there will come a time when we have to make daily activities more comfortable and protect pets against injury especially when they get old.
If you’re reading this blog, you probably already know something about the value of pet ramps. So ask yourself – what’s the best way for our pets to get into a car, van or truck? Does he want to make a leap for it or have a nice convenient ramp to make the task easier and safer?
But the fact remains just because your dog can jump to access things in high places, doesn’t mean he should! It’s simply dangerous!
Our dogs come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and health condition and it all depends on us throughout their lives to look out for their comfort, well-being and safety.
At the end of the day, you can narrow down your choices by noting that pet steps take up the least amount of space when in use and are often cheaper than dog ramps. Pet ramps are best suited for disabled pets or for geriatric dogs that lack strength in their rear legs, and they can take up less space when not used. If you’ve got questions and needed more guidance on which ramp to buy feel free to contact us.
