I have never come across anything more absorbent than these pads. The plastic on the bottom of them holds in the urine just like a diaper would and the top is soft, a little plushie, and quilted as a diaper would be. I bought this pad because of the many positive reviews I read and believe me, it works! Big enough for our 67lb yellow lab to use when we are gone for a little while, or while we are sleeping. We got snowed in once and had to wait for someone to dig the snow away from our door. Our wonderful lab didn't have to wait! When she peed on the edge of it, it didn't run over and spill onto the floor, it was that catchy!
Easy to discard
Inexpensive (approx $1.60 per pad)
