My dog is old and has bad arthritis. We can't have carpet because she has bladder issues. Is there a floor out there that is easy on dog's joints, won't cause them to go slipping and sliding all over and is resistant to moisture?

Be careful with cork.  If you do go with it, make sure you buy a quality product.  While it is excellent for dogs joints, it is soft and if you don't get a quality product, it can stratch or gouge. Check out this link for help www.findanyfloor.com/BuyingGuides/...

For an elderly dog, cork is great.  Just clean up accidents asap.

Also, vinyl and rubber are good.

Thanks everyone, for your opinions.  I went with cork and so far, it is working out great.
