Tips for dog ramp for senior dog
I need to build a ramp off my deck for my senior dog (about 50 pounds) as she is starting to fall on the steps and she will not allow me to help her or assist her in any manner. My house is literally five feet off the ground, so I think the ramp will be pretty steep. Any tips or suggestions?
I know I'll need to put some sort of non-slippery carpeing or something on it too.
She has arthritis, hip dysplasia, spondylosis, and has had past surgeries on her knees. She can still walk okay, but I am afraid if she keeps falling, one of these days she is going to get hurt. I am worried that it will be too steep for her. I don't know how to determine what is too steep, etc.
