I loved the pad itself but I dunno if it was the charcoal or not but my dogs would tear into the spot that they would pee on and it turned pink. Needless to say I'm going to try without the charcoal. It didn't make any difference other then the dogs tearing into it after using and it turning pink.
BS"D I was using the non-charcoal pads with cats and little dogs and was very happy with them. Recently inherited a dog with tick paralysis and his urine was smelly and lots of it, so I decided to give the charcoal pads a try and they did the trick.
I love these pads. I put them under the litter box since my kitty never learned to squat low enough and over shoots the litter box. These have charcoal in them so the smell is controlled.
I love Frisco they are more expensive but after trying so many others that leak its worth it best to buy the biggest pads ..I've tried Frisco environmentally better ah those yellow and they leak sorry I tried..so charcoal was next step as they few dollars cheaper ok tried that with yellow pads but these pads are good quality ..the best reason not give 5 stats is they are black ..it's hard to "SEE"" THE PEE so you don't step on it..but hey if this my only complaint I'm all in now crazy as it sounds these pads fluctuate in price everyday apparently this company is on stock market . Wow all these years I never knew ha ha but Frisco best pads hands down big pads box 75 worth it better than AKC ..GLAD..HARTZ . I say try it you won't ever look for another
Pads disintegrated when dog peed on them, leaked thru to floor, very unsafe to step on, especially at night.
I purchased these pads to be used for my old pup as she has recently lost movement of her legs. Great size and smell resistance. Thumbs & paws up for this product.
My miniature is Josie was pad trained from her breeder since she is so small, going outside in below zero weather isn’t an option for her. I’ve always used the Frisco brand pads & when they came out with the charcoal pads -wow-definitely a winning idea! I do like the even bigger size but the price has gone up so much(hasn’t everything?)
These did not absorb and the charcoal came out in balls where it was wet
These are the most absorbent pads that I've come across so far. They also are a little heavier than the other pads I've used previously, so it stays in place better than most.
I have a geriatric Maine Coon Cat (i.e. very large cat) who refuses to use littler box and will only do her business on one particular throw rug. I use these underneath the rug and they work wonderfully and have never let an urine leak through to the floor. When I change the pads I can still smell urine but you don't smell it while the pads are on the floor---they work keeping the smell at bay when they get used.
