Product is not as described
on January 11, 2013
The picture for this item leads you to believe you are buying a thick pad. This is a VERY thin piece of plastic with another thin layer of cotton on top. In the product picture, what you are actually looking at is the pad you are purchasing wrapped AROUND another pad you supposedly already have. (I uploaded a product photo to hopefully demonstrate how thin this product is.) If you tape these directly to your carrier it will leave a residue that you will have a hard time removing. Also, even though it's disposable, the product description (as of January 2013) states, "it's durable and machine washable!" Do not believe this. This is certainly one-time use only, much like a disposable diaper.
I can see that if you are traveling and have no other options, this might keep your pet dry. However, four pads for $10 is not an economical, long-term solution if you travel frequently or if you have to keep your pet in his carrier overnight occasionally. I have found that Scott Shop Towels (the thick blue kind) work great for this. For our cat carrier I roll out four sheets then fold in half. If our cat has an accident in his carrier he stays dry and clean up is easy. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than these ridiculous pads.
