Adjustable Dog Wheelchair for Hind Legs
This dog wheelchair is designed to fit any sized dog. Wheelchairs for dogs are essential for managing problems in the hindlimbs. They enable dogs to stay active and maintain their independence, thus regaining their physical and mental health. In some cases, using a wheelchair can be the key to a good recovery in animals with reversible paraplegia.
It has 2 main uses:
- Auxiliar in dogs with reduced mobility in the hind legs. The animal receives support to move the hind legs freely. It provides independence and prevents the loss of muscle mass and ankylosis due to prolonged disuse, as well as allowing the animal to regain mobility.
- Full support for back legs in paralyzed dogs. It ensures their independence and prevents skin ulcers due to permanent, prolonged rest on the bed or floor. There are even many cases where, depending on the injury, the dog can regain mobility, as we increase the dog's activity level and enable it to try moving the legs.
The most common situations where using a wheelchair is necessary are: hip dysplasia, arthritis, herniated discs, proprioceptive deficits, as an aid during rehabilitation or in order to immobilize the hind limbs after a surgical procedure.
The design of this chair is unique and has been endorsed and improved by expert veterinarians. Made of extruded aluminum parts and designed to easily adapt to any sized dog. Assembly is very simple. The wheelchair comes with all necessary components and instructions for its immediate use.
It can be instantaneously adapted to any breed or size thanks to its new and improved design. Our unique neoprene harnesses offer better adjustment and comfort.
We only need you to measure from the ground up to the groin and select the measurement from the drop down menu. Available in blue, pink or camouflage.
The key to success regarding the dog's adjustment to the wheelchair lies in the dog's desire to walk again and that the front legs are in good condition. Thus, a cheerful dog with the desire and motivation to move again, that has to drag itself around the house by pulling with the front limbs, will be eternally grateful to you for providing a dog wheelchair. With the chair, once again you will be able to enjoy going for walks and feeling your dog tug on the leash.
Generally, the dog adjusts to the wheelchair on the same day we introduce it. In the event that the animal has had a long period of inactivity and there is muscular atrophy, we must progressively introduce the chair in order for the muscles in the front legs to become stronger: in a few days we can observe how the dog passes from spending the whole day lying down to having an almost normal activity level. When acquiring a wheelchair for dogs you will receive a set of recommendations that will help you during this process.
The wheelchair besides regaining mobility and your dog's self-esteem, also improves the condition of the muscles, having a very positive overall effect on their health.
