K9 Carts Blog
Jake was 3 years old when he left the yard and was missing for 3 days. He drug himself home and was laying in the pine straw under the stairs when I found him. He had apparently been hit by a car and even after surgery was paralyzed in his back end and had little use of his rear limbs. At 6 years of age he received the wheels
Our carts are designed for a pet either to use its hind legs or to have them up and protected in slings if they are paralyzed or just have minimal feeling without sufficient ability to take steps. Very often a pet will have the ability to walk with one paw but not the other.
The second most common pet requiring help with mobility are cats. Cats do very well in carts. One of the most amazing cats in a cart was named Scooter who was adopted after being found lying by the side of the road after being run over and abandoned.
One of my favorite sayings is that every single minute of every day, somewhere in the world someone is smiling watching a dog running around in a K9 Carts wheelchair. So what exactly is K9 Happiness?
Our dog wheelchair is convertible and therefore if your pet needs more or less support, parts can be added or subtracted to make sure it is the correct support system that your pet needs at its particular stage of mobility loss. The basic standard two wheeled cart is for the pet that has lost or is losing its ability to walk with the rear legs and is still strong in the front legs. This orthopedically designed cart gives total support to the rear, keeping the spine and body in alignment, while taking stress off the front legs.
