Good luck, I hope the wood/laminate works.

Try a stall mat. A lot of Lab breeders use them in their kennels. Some cut them to fit their crates, too. Tractor Supply has them.

Stall mats can be destroyed though...

Can you put like... some time of chicken wire (but the nicer stuff that wont cut feet) and attach to the outside of the bottom part of the cage, in between the crate and the pad. That way if his foot slips through it won't go through all the way.

Using a try under the wire floor is really for puppies. I'm not surprised he got a foot caught. I hope you find something that works.

Oh! Now that might have some possibilities!

I might be missing some history here, but what about trying something to solve the SA so he's not frantic (and peeing) in the crate to begin with? Then you could use whatever floor material you want and you'd have a happier, less stressed dog, too!

Of the options suggested earlier, I'd prob try the tray on top of the wire first since it's designed of those same materials and you know they hold up.

eta: Kennel Deck material could be an option too - it held up well to dogs at a kennel I worked at and it still allows drainage.

The SA is as solved as it can get without using meds, and I'd prefer not to go that route right now.

I'm also not sure it would allow me to use whatever floor material I want. He is a malligator...

I did look into putting the tray on top of the bars. It doesn't fit.

I've looked at those kennel decks. What is the material like? How chew proof are they? This is a dog that can eat his way out of a vari kennel in under 30 minutes.

A deck is expected to get tough use. He will be able to dent it, and probably gnaw away the edges, but it would still be workable.
