6 Uses For Pet Pee Pads

This is a sponsored post. Pawsitively Pets only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. All opinions expressed here are our own.

Pee pads are often a useful product for puppies going through their early potty training stages. However, I've recently discovered that they come in handy in other instances as well. I've had some OUT! dog pads since December, but never thought I'd have any use for them. Turned out I was wrong and they've actually been quite a useful product to have on hand.

Here are 6 Uses for Pet Pee Pads:

1. Potty Training a Puppy

Of course, this is the most obvious use for a dog pee pad and is probably the main reason many people purchase pee pads in the first place. Simply place the pee pad in your home and reward your puppy when they go potty on the pad. Training your puppy to use a pee pad is helpful if you cannot be at home with them 24/7 due to work schedules. 

2. Senior Dog Urinary Incontinence

Sometimes, senior dogs can become incontinent. Most of the time, it's not their fault if they have an accident. Their bodies are just not what they used to be and pee accidents happen. I have noticed my dog has some urinary incontinence recently. She will "leak" urine in her sleep, which can be a problem if she's sleeping on furniture. I have placed OUT! pee pads in the areas where she most likes to sleep for extra protection. 

3. Pet Accidents

Farrah was having accidents almost every day on our carpet. 

Accidents happen. My dog has more accidents than she used to on my carpet. It's almost always in the same place, so I keep a dog pee pad there just in case. Also, back in the Spring when we were keeping my brother's dog for him we had a bit of a pee accident problem. Farrah, my brother's dog, was going potty in one specific place in my living room. She was potty trained and typically did not have accidents at her own home. I took her out frequently, but she still urinated in the same spot. Putting a pee pad down saved my carpet in this case. 

4. Cat Litter Boxes

Placing a pet pee pad down underneath your cat's litter box can be helpful too. Especially if you have a senior cat who may miss the box sometimes. 

5. Use Pet Pee Pads in Crates or Carriers as Bedding

Pet pee pads work well in crates or carriers. 

I currently have a kitten and when I'm not home, he stays in a crate for his own protection. I have been putting pee pads in his crate because he does have an accident occasionally despite having a litter box available. The same can be done for puppies who are crate training. You can also place pee pads inside of carriers while traveling, just in case an accident happens. 

6. Donate to a Shelter

If you still can't find a use for any extra pet pads you have around the house, consider donating them to your local shelter or rescue. They'll have plenty of uses for them!

Why We Use OUT! Dog Pads


The OUT! Dog Pads I had on hand proved to be a life saver for me with our doggy house guest. If you're looking for a more sturdy dog pad, you can try OUT! Heavy Duty Quilted Dog Pads which are 50% stronger and 25% more absorbent. The stronger pads help reduce tearing and shredding. 

Also available are OUT! Odor Control Quilted Dog Pads which are for pet parents who are looking for improved quality and performance at the same great price. 

Both of these OUT! dog pee pads offer triple protection against leaks, quicker absorption, advanced odor control, and include an advanced dog attractant to help train pets where to go potty. They are now available at Walmart and online at www.OutPetCare.com.

  8. i have 3 little girls that pee and poo. the oldest cant hold it long anymore b/c she is almost 15 yrs old, you have to get her right away when she is ready or she has an accident. i go thru lots of pee pads with my girls. i also use them on the car seats under the towels. if they have to travel in a crate i will put them in the bottom of the crate with a towel on top. i also put them under the water bowl and food bowl.

  12. Our vet used pee pads in our carrier when somecat (not naming names...Ernie!) had an accident in it. If we won the pads, we would donate them to our shelter. We know they use them.

    1. Oh yes don't worry Ernie! So many cats have accidents in their carriers. Like, every kind of bodily fluid accident there could possibly be for a cat. ;)

  13. We use pee pads in many ways too. We have them on all beds and couches, covered by blankets, because of Cookie's incontinence issues. I used them under her cooling bed because as awesome as they are they do leak sooner or later. And when Cookie needed Epsom salt soaks and hated having her foot in a container, we just sprayed it on for 10 minutes instead having her stand on a pee pad. I have to say that was the most impressive experience because the amount of the Epsom salt solution the pad held was enormous. Well, 10 minutes of spraying the foot to substitute it being submerged. You can imagine.

  17. Great ideas - I keep two (side by side) under our portable greenhouse in the winter - it protects the floor if I accidentally spill when watering or if a pot leaks.
