Pet Mobility Carts and Disability Aids for Sale or for Hire Australia

Everything to help you if your pet has a disability

Extra Supportive Wheelchair

This is a Standard Dog Wheelchair by K9 Carts™ with an added extension to give support to the front limbs. Example: Your pet can walk with the front legs, but has some weakness when using the towel test. The front wheels are casters and are used for guiding the cart. This cart will allow pets with some weakness in the front legs to continue to be mobile. It is recommended only for pets with moderate strength in the front limbs.

  • Excellent rehabilitative aid for encouraging your pet to return to walking on its own.
  • Keeps your pet happier and healthier as it is able to exercise and join in family activities.
  • This cart design encourages leg movement and, in many cases, a return to full rear limb function.
  • Your pet is able to urinate and defecate while in the cart.
  • Nursing care is easier for the pet owner.
  • Stable pelvic support system keeps spine and limbs in alignment and promotes healing.
  • Takes stress off the rear legs.
  • Your pet can use the cart with its legs either down, in the walking position, or up in the support slings, non-walking position.
  • Your pet has the ability to use its rear legs while still being totally supported in the rear.
  • Supporting the rear keeps your pet’s front legs stronger.
  • Encourages normal leg movement when legs are fully supported in slings.
  • Lightweight, eases the strain on your pet.
  • Well balanced cart makes motion easier and safer.
  • Front extensions may be added to or removed from a Standard Dog Wheelchair by K9 Carts™ at any time.
