5 stars! This course is game changing!


My wife is a vet and always checking out our dogs. I didn't understand what the big deal was until she told me about this course. Wow! Lots to learn and be checking for.


Information for every pet parent. I feel more confident now, knowing my dog's normal baseline of her different vitals. I am now prepared to notice if something changes.


I've tried booties and sticky pads but these ToeGrips work the best! They go on easy and stay on.


Instead of putting rugs throughout the house I put these on him and he is walking happily again!!
