How will my dog benefit?

Pets in need of our rear support dog wheelchairs have trouble using their rear legs but have strong front legs. 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. Every K9 Cart is custom built for your dog and guaranteed to fit. Our expert staff works with you after the purchase to ensure your cart is fit and balanced perfectly.
A dog wheelchair rental is ideal for pets who are using the wheelchair only for rehabilitation over a short period of time — typically, two to four weeks. The rental is also preferable for clients looking to make payments or wish to try out a wheelchair prior to purchasing or are unsure if their pet is a good candidate.

Description

How our Rear Support Dog Wheelchairs Work

Our rear support wheelchairs are designed to reduce some or all of the weight bearing on a dog’s hind legs. Your dog’s rear legs can be left down if they’re still mobile with adjustable weight bearing or held up in the rear slings if totally immobile. Let slings come standard with all of our rear support wheelchairs.

Our wheelchairs or carts  have been shown to slow the progression of virtually all spinal diseases. As soon as pets start to show signs of knuckling over on the rear paws or rear limb weakness, it is time to evaluate for our rear support cart which will still allow them full mobility in the rear end, but take most of the weight bearing off of the rear joints and spine which greatly reduces the overall stress on the body. Front support can be added at any time down the road if needed.

Our carts were originally designed for rehabilitation in post surgical care for pets with back, knee, and hip surgery as well as older pets and long term mobility solutions. The height of the cart is set so the rear paws are flat on the ground with the rear legs at full extension. This allows full use of the rear legs while in the cart with minimal weight bearing. The height of the cart can be adjusted gradually as well to add more weight bearing as recovery takes place.

Our carts are the lightest weight on the market and perfectly balanced, so there is no added stress to the front legs or spine. The frame of the cart is designed to hold the back in alignment and prevent any further injury.

How does the Rental Program Work?

  1. The program is a rent-to-own program broken down into 3 two week periods. You do not have to rent for the entire term and you can return the cart if needed at anytime.
  2. You pay the initial 2 week rental fee plus your shipping cost. Every rental payment is removed from the overall cost of your wheelchair as payments are made.
  3. We ship you out a custom built, fully adjustable, guaranteed to fit, wheelchair from our USA production location.
  4. Your 2 week rental period starts the day you receive your wheelchair.
  5. Within 48 hours of your rental expiring; please call or email us and choose whether to rent the wheelchair for another 2 weeks, return if needed, or you can pay off the remaining balance at anytime. Wheelchair rental payments are non refundable and after the final payment is made; your wheelchair is now yours to keep. *Please note the Rental Program is only available within the continental United States and Canada.
  6. All wheelchair rentals may include used parts from previous rentals with minor cosmetic blemishes; this will not effect the functionality in any way. Every rental is still custom built and includes new straps and support system.

Warranty and Support

Every rear support wheelchair is custom made in the USA for each patient. We’ve perfected the design of our wheelchairs with the knowledge of an experienced staff. In fact, K9 Carts was founded by veterinarians in 1961.

We share that knowledge with our clients all the time. When we take on a new client, we know that we’re starting a relationship with them. A client’s relationship with K9 Carts doesn’t end when the wheelchair ships. We offer ongoing, unlimited support to our clients: You can ask us for help or advice for as long as your dog uses the wheelchair.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.
