Thanks. I've been using this step for him which has worked out great so far. However lately he hesitates when jumping in the car, which is why I think it might be time for a ramp. Funny thing is, he doesn't hesitate at all to climb up the steps to the deck to bark at the neighbor's cats.

I tried making this DIY ramp, however he doesn't like it. It think because its a bit unstable. Plus it doesn't collapse, so its not very portable.

Joey travels in the back seat, with a hammock cover. He’s been having trouble climbing into the car, but my husband’s right there to nudge him up.

He just started Adequan this week; we’re hoping for good results.
