Pug in Dog Wheelchair

I want to tell you how satisfied I am with the k9 cart that I purchased for my pug, Sparky . The cart was easy to assemble , easy to place my dog in and he has adapted it very quickly. Your service was excellent and I recommend the k 9 cart to others who have a dog with hind leg paresis.

Pets in need of the Rear Support Wheelchair have some or complete weakness in the rear legs and good strength in the front legs while using the towel test as well as the desire to be active. The Rear Support Wheelchair removes some or all of the weight bearing on the hind legs while allowing complete mobility. The rear legs can be left down for pets still mobile in the rear or the legs can be held up with the legs slings. Every wheelchair comes standard with leg slings to hold the back legs up if needed. The Rear Support Dog Wheelchair balances perfectly on your dog and will not put any pressure on the shoulders or front legs. The wheelchair is very simple to take on and off with just one strap clip at the shoulders.

The Rear Support Dog Wheelchair is excellent for post-surgical rehabilitation, older arthritic dogs or any pets experiencing rear limb weakness. This wheelchair is also an excellent alternative for dogs when surgery is not an option as well.

    Lily is doing amazing in her new K9cart! Thank you so much!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    This wheelchair has been very beneficial to my dog’s recovery. We use it as a rehabilitation tool, and he is beginning to walk on his own again! Thank you, K9 Carts!

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have to admit I bought a less expensive cart for my Corgi. After a snap broke, the adjustment kept shifting and the wheels got shaky I ordered the K9 Cart which is what I should have done in the first place.
    Easy to put together, easy to put her in, sturdy enough for our dirt road and woods trails. She chases chipmunks and balls. She got ahead of me one day and I found her happily soaking in her favorite brook.
    Thank you for such a great product! – Betsy

    It took a couple of days for my dog to get used to his rear support wheelchair. After lots of encouragement, he is finally getting the hang of it, and he does appear to be a bit happier now.

    Very affordable. Happy to know that it is a convertible cart, so if I need to I can order the parts to make it a full support cart.

    I was apprehensive of having to take all the measurements that are needed. However, when I received the wheelchair and put it together, my puppy fit into it perfectly. Now he is running around again, which he hasn’t be able to do for a couple weeks!

    I had to make a couple minor adjustments when we got it, but now that May is comfy in her cart she is running all over the place. We went for a hike the other day, and she had no problem going up or down the hills. May kept up with our other dog with no problem.

    Blue is doing awesome! You’re wheels have given her a second chance of a great life. .sniffing her way through our new neighborhood! She is a very happy doggie! We can’t thank you enough! I am asked almost everyday on our walks where I got those wheels and I give people your name!

    Onyx continues to do well in her K9 cart. Onyx was trained in Schutzhund and holds Schutzhund and Show titles.
    Although she can no longer perform a full Schutzhund routine in protection, she can enjoy chasing her tug. – Deborah

    Her back legs are paralyzed, so your cart has been a real blessing for her, with few exceptions she can pretty much do whatever her sister can.
    She loves her daily walk and is known in our neighborhood as “wheels”
    She has had the cart for 3 years now and thanks to it she is mobile and leads a very active and full life.
    Thank you for what you do – Colin

    When he first put it on he ran to the neighbors excited. He never hesitates to put it on and checks out his old trees and poles in the neighborhood. Thanks for making this possible.

    Hi K9 Carts, we want to thank you for all that you have done for Reggie! He is getting very big very fast and is well on his way to being a happy young boy! The time we have had him, has truly been nothing short of spectacular. These special little guys have something big to teach us…. So thank you for all you have done for us and all that you do for others!

    Just a quick note to say thank you for Bella’s new lease on life. I haven’t seen this smile in months. My strong , 55 lb Pittie girl was forced to slither around her world and now she can explore and chase birds and rabbits again. Best money I have ever spent!

    We love this cart! This cart has helped rehabilitate my German Shepherd, his condition is definitely not deteriorating. The cart is great for taking him on extended walks and for him to be able to play around outside. Thank you K9 Carts for such a great product!

    Guess what…Scooter has taken his first few steps after 1 year. They think he is spine walking. He still can’t get up well, but once he is up, if he is on carpet inside or ground outside he can walk several steps before tipping over.
    I think the cart helped with this. I kept lowering the rear so he had to put more and more pressure on the legs and strengthen the muscles. His first few steps each time he rolls his knuckles but after a few steps he seems ok.
    I wanted to share this…..

    Awesome product. The first time Lefty was in the cart he was chasing his packmates around the yard at full speed. The second day he went on a mile plus walk with some real good 5% grades. The cart is light, but very sturdy. The finish is excellent.

  29. Rated 5 out of 5

    Thank you so much for the fast and friendly service. My dog thanks you as well.

    My dog loves his wheelchair. It is so much easier to take him outside in his wheelchair to go to the bathroom.

  31. Rated 5 out of 5

    This great product gave my dog an extra 17 months to enjoy life with us. He loved to go for walks again, and play with his sister. Once he became weaker in front, I called up K9 Carts and was able to add the front support to the cart, to give him extra assistance. Everyone at K9 Carts has been extremely helpful and understanding. I will highly recommend this product.

    Very happy that my dog is now getting the exercise he couldn’t get before.

  33. Rated 5 out of 5

    We got this cart for my dog Jamie. He has been chasing his sister around all day. We used to have a different cart that was large, cumbersome, and difficult to use – this cart is simple, easy to use, and very lightweight. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Words don’t even begin to describe how happy we are with this cart! Zeus is enjoying his nightly walks again! We are very happy and thankful for the great invention!

  35. Rated 5 out of 5

    Such a good product. Easy to put together and easy to put my dog in and out quickly. I have a small dog, so she is able to easily use her cart inside the house too, which is an added bonus. I’m just disappointed I hadn’t found K9 Carts sooner.

    After being unable to walk for almost two weeks, my dog immediately took off with me down the sidewalk! After using the cart for a week, she is excited to see me get it ready so she can go on her walks. Very easy to assemble, and easy to understand instructions.

    My dog loves her K9 Cart! It has made taking her out for walks so much easier. Whenever she sees the cart, she gets excited to go outside. She is so much happier now!
