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.

What Makes K9 Carts the Leader in Pet Mobility?

Each K9 Cart combines 51 years of experience within the field of Veterinary Medicine to give our clients the only fully adjustable, convertible dog wheelchair designed by Orthopedic Veterinarians for your pet.

Given the quantity of available pet mobility companies to choose from these days; we at K9 carts do urge our clients to be careful as wheelchairs and all mobility products are medical equipment and should be purchased through a verified company within the medical industry.

Our staff have years handling customer support within the medical field and we will always go above and beyond to ensure your pet receives the highest quality care possible.

    I’ve been meaning to write for a week – BUT WE’RE HAVING TOO MUCH FUN IN OUR WHEELIE!!!!!!!
    I have a brand new boxer. That’s all there is to it. It’s changed his quality of life from acceptable to exceptional. He even managed to jog in it on Day THREE, and watching his ears flop as he did about brought me to tears. He bushwhacks in it, too. He’s simply amazing.
    I’ll send pics, video and a detailed report this weekend!
    THANK YOU. I need a license plate for him because he’s HELLON wheels – where do I get those?!! lol

    My mother, Sandy, purchased a rear-support wheelchair as a Christmas gift for my elderly porgi (1/2 pug + 1/2 corgi). This is hands-down the best gift ever!! It took a very short time to get the wheelchair set up for him and for him to get used to it. I cannot believe the difference it has made! He is literally running down the sidewalks now like a puppy and it even helps him while he’s eating so he is more stable and less likely to choke. I have noticed that since taking our daily walk/run with the wheelchair, he has had a marked decrease in “accidents” in the house. Your product has given my most loved and special friend a new lease on life and I am so grateful! THANK YOU!!!

    This product is an absolute life saver. I have never been so appreciative of something. My dog was immobile and our situation was very bleak. The first time I put him in his wheels it was amazing. He was so happy he could walk with our other dogs and just be himself again. I couldn’t recommend this product more. Seeing my dog acting like his old self and getting to enjoy life means the world to me. I don’t know where we would be if we hadn’t tried K9 Carts. From going on walks to just hanging in the house his wheels work great. Watching him get to walk after months was a tear jerker.m, nothing worse then bending down walking your dog through the yard just so he could go to the bathroom. Thank you for changing my dogs life and making mine easier. If your dog is having issues don’t hesitate to buy them a cart. Also if it helps acupuncture has really been beneficial, both together have got him walking again on his own when we never thought he would walk again. He’s still wobbly but it’s allowed him to gain muscle back in his legs. If your dog is struggling worry no more because K9 Carts will save you and your dog!

    K9 Carts thank you! Sage Marie has a new zest for life now that she is mobile again. She barks again, wants to eat and play and best of all she can hunt mice with her best cat buddy!

    I am very happy to inform you that Sassy is doing so much better since getting her cart. She is getting around quite well, and has even seen some improvement in her rear legs. I can’t thank you enough for the quick service. I know we would have lost her had we not purchased the cart, her little spirit was almost gone not being able to get around.

    Thanks so much. I have to say that I am most grateful for your (and your company’s) amazing customer support and interest. I don’t think I have ever encountered a more professional and involved business team. It is obvious that you have a concern for our pets and for pet owners. Thank you…

    Once Bridgette receives her cart, I will have two dogs using your products (Nicholas has a full support cart). I cannot say enough good things about your company. Your customer service is outstanding, and you provide such hope to all of the pet families out there who are in really stressful situations. Thank you for giving my babies their lives back.

    My big Lab is so happy in his K9 Cart. He is able to run around and play with all his friends again. Unfortunately, we can’t use it inside, because it is too large and catches on furniture. Once he sees his cart he gets a look in his eye that says playtime!

    Casey has had her cart for about 18 months a few months after being diagnosed with DM. At first it was just what she needed for a little extra support on long walks. You can see in the picture her feet were down with socks and duct tape to prevent scraping. This enabled her full range of motion and some weight bearing and kept her in good shape for a long time. Now her back legs are up in the loops. From the very first she loved her cart. I credit having this cart with extending her life and happiness. It also meant I could continue long walks with her so was just as important to me.
    It is easy to put her in. She’s pretty rough on her cart and several times I had to call you for parts You were so helpful, even sent parts with no charge and did it quickly.. Even though I bought a used cart it fit her perfectly
    She still goes to the park in her cart, though for short walks as she tires easily.
    Casey and I cannot thank you enough for the cart and your consistent and caring support.

    Thank you very much. My Pepper did wonderful and I believe that the wheelchair helped get her mobility back. She is now walking on her own. Distemper took her back legs from her by paralysis and almost her front legs. It was at the point that I was going to let her cross over but wanted to try the wheel chair to get her up for a little therapy. It was my last attempt and wanted to make her happy by getting her upright even if it was just a short while. 2 wks later she was walking on her own and now she is acting like a puppy. Thank you again from Pepper and her momma.

    Hi… first I can’t tell you enough how grateful we are to have found your product. It’s as if our beloved dog has found a new lease on life. He is still trying to navigate tight turns but for the most part his transition to his new “legs” has been seamless. For that, we thank you.

    We recently were visiting some friends at an agility match. Everyone was thrilled not only to see Bailey, but how well he adjusted to his new wheels. K9 Carts has certainly made him one happy and mobile 13 year old Cavalier. We are very grateful.

    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

    As a veterinarian, I believe this is a great product. I have assisted my clients in measuring and fitting the wheelchairs, and have had no problems. The product is well made, and simple to put together and use. I will continue to recommend this product to all of my clients who need mobility assistance.

    Our dog has been handicapped for many years. Before we bought this wheelchair for him, he would lay around depressed all the time, as his brothers could go out and play but he couldn’t. We bought this wheelchair though, and now he is the happiest I have ever seen him! His brothers are pretty happy too!

    I love my dog’s K9 Cart. She is a very small dog, so I was able to get a beautiful pink cart for her – she looks adorable in it! She races around like a puppy again. When we heard of her diagnosis, with no hope of recovering, we were devastated. When we learned of K9 Carts, it was a miracle. We now have much more time with our little girl, and we are all grateful for that!
