Rudy Gets His Chance to Play
Rudy was rescued from a neglectful situation where his mobility problems were not being properly addressed. He is named in honor of the famous Notre Dame football player Rudy Ruettiger whose story is told in the movie "Rudy". And much like his namesake, Rudy just wanted a chance to play.
His owner posted a video clip of Rudy playing with her other dogs on the HandicappedPets.com Facebook page in the hopes of getting some feedback about whether a cart would work for Rudy.
Since the Walkin' Wheels is returnable, Rudy's family decided to give it a try. As soon as the after video of him in his Walkin' Wheels appeared on our Facebook page, the chanting began, "Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!"
If Rudy has inspired you to learn more about the Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets, please visit our wheelchair page.
Take Back the Couch
We know that many of you happily share the furniture with your pets and/or provide them with comfortable sleeping areas. Keeping these areas clean and dry is a priority.
However, pets who are suffering from incontinence may not be able to enjoy the comforts of the couch as they once did. If the fear of leaks, has your pet confined to the floor or frequently positioned on newspaper, there is hope with a variety of product offerings available at PetDiapers.com
Peepers™ - Disposable Pet Diapers for dogs, cats, and other pets - features elastic, no-leak gathers and resealable velcro tape. Six (6) different sizes are available to fit pets weighing up to 60 pounds.
Other products offered at PetDiapers.cominclude Mr. Peepers™ Male Wrap Belly Bands, Washable Diapers, Bird Diapers, Fancy Pants Diaper Covers and even Suspenders to keep those diapers in their place!

The Latest in Canine and Feline Splints are Available at HandicappedPets.com
Splints provide much needed support for weakness due to injury or illness in the lower limbs of dogs and cats. A variety of both front and rear limb splints are available at HandicappedPets.com.
One of our newest products in this category is the Bootie Splint which offers support for the lower aspect of the rear leg.
This brace extends under the paw to stabilize the toes and provides proper positioning to counteract the "knuckling under" associated with injury, nerve damage and progressive diseases such as degenerative myelopathy ("DM").
