How our wheelchairs work
Our rear support wheelchairs remove some or all of the weight bearing on a dog’s hind legs. At the same time, the wheelchair also affords a dog near complete mobility. A dog’s rear legs can be left down if they’re still mobile. If a dog has lost the use of their back legs, those legs can be supported with slings — slings come standard with all of our rear support wheelchairs.
Each of our rear support wheelchairs is built to balance on your dog. It won’t put pressure on on your dog’s shoulders or front legs. The wheelchairs are easy to use — they have one strap that clips at your dog’s 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.
Lifetime 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.
What Makes K9 Carts the Leader in Pet Mobility?
Our rear support dog wheelchair is the best dog wheelchair on the market. It’s the lightest and most adjustable wheelchair on the market. Every chair is custom built to the unique specifications and needs of each dog and can be adjusted over time as a dog’s needs and body change.
In fact, our rear wheelchairs are the only convertible and adjustable pet wheelchairs designed by orthopedic veterinarians. Each cart takes advantage of our combined 55 years of experience in veterinary medicine.
Other pet wheelchairs are made cheaply and aren’t custom designed. Our competitors don’t offer the experience, customization, and lifetime support that K9 Carts does for every client. We think of our patients first. Our company takes our medical responsibilities seriously.
