Improve Pet Mobility When Not Using a Wheelchair
Improving Your Pet’s Mobility Inside
A wheelchair is a great solution for keeping your pet active, but it’s not always the best solution for indoors. Maneuvering indoor obstacles, around furniture, through tight spaces, and around tight corners can be challenging when in a wheelchair.
The Walkin’ Scooter is a great alternative for the dog wheelchair. It easily glides across flooring and is easy for your pet to maneuver. With its special, roller ball casters your pet can move easily in any direction. Allowing your pet to move freely and even rest when they want to.
Avoid Decubitus Ulcers
Dogs struggling with mobility loss tend to be less active and spend a lot of time laying down. Senior pets also have a harder time gently lowering themselves to the ground, often this leads to the dropping to the ground suddenly. Over time, constant impact on a bony joint like the hip bone can cause discomfort and lead to decubital ulcers.
These pressure sores hurt and are difficult to treat. The Walkin’ Hip-EEZ and Donut attachment are designed to create a cushioned barrier between your dog’s hip joint and the hard floor. Not only is your dog more comfortable, but the joint is protected from further damage. The Donut can be used to treat existing pressure sores or prevent them from forming.
Quick Potty Trips
Whether it’s the middle of the night or you just got your dog out of their wheelchair, sometimes you need to get your dog outside in a hurry. Luckily a quick, easy solution is available to help you get your dog outside quickly for those emergency bathroom trips.
The Up-n-Go Rear Support Leash slips easily up your dog’s legs, allowing you to support their rear end as they get up and get them outside in seconds. It’s simple to use and fits dogs 20 – 150 lbs.
With arthritic joints or weakened strength in their legs, your pet may struggle going up stairs, jumping into the car, or needs a little extra support getting around. A lifting harness like the Lift-n-Step harness offers support in both the front and rear of your pet. And is a great solution for those everyday activities that your pet needs a little extra help with.
