Really wanted to like this pee pad, BUT...

There's a lot to like about this pee pad but there is one major problem that all the good stuff doesn't make up for: IT ABSORBS ALMOST NOTHING IN THE LIQUID DEPARTMENT!
I really wanted to love these as they are the perfect dimensions for my Dura-Whelp XL whelping box. They also have a very soft, plush pile so are very comfortable for young puppies. The rubber backing is also a great feature as it keeps the pad in place and prevents it from sliding around on the bottom of the box. However, there is zero absorbent middle layer to wick moisture away from the surface like other pee pads I've purchased. Even a very small teaspoon or two of urine basically just saturates the fuzz on the surface just sits there. It is not wicked down into the pad and away from the surface at all. I have small-breed puppies and even their very small urine outputs make a huge mess with this pad because there are essentially small puddles left wherever they go. I can't imagine what it would be like if an adult dog or larger breed used this pad. Bottom line, if all you need is a soft surface these will work but if you need absorbent properties look elsewhere.
