Everything to help you if your pet has a disability
Your pet is unable to walk with the front legs when using the towel test and must be supported in both the front and rear legs. The Fully-Supportive Dog Wheelchair by K9 Carts™ is for the pet with weakness in all four limbs. This wheelchair gives full support to front and rear limbs, while allowing minimal weight-bearing on the limbs. Slings are provided for those pets who need either the front or rear paws held up and protected from scraping on the ground. The Fully-Supportive Dog Wheelchair by K9 Carts™ aids with rehabilitation, by keeping your pet in a standing position, allowing for physical therapy and range of motion exercises on all four limbs. In many cases, this fully-supportive chair can assist and speed up the rehabilitative process, often returning pets to full mobility. Total recovery, of course, depends on the pet’s medical condition when being placed in the cart.
