If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
I ordered a Walkin' Wheels Wheelchair from Handicap pets in Nov and my dog is paralzyed in her back end she does walk some using her back legs. But I have notice a little issue when she is in her wheels. Her rear end seems to kind of be saggy. it is almost like her weight of her rear end is to havey for the support system that came with her chart. I have it as small as it will go, but once she gets in it and gets going her rear end startes to get saggy and then she starts dragging her legs because to much of her legs are now to much on the ground. I was looking at the Walkin Lift Harness but was affraid to order it if it won't help. The wheelchair itself seems to be the right size it just seems like the support system that hold her back up in place will not support her weight. She is a cocker spaniel who weighs in about 24lbs. Any advice would be great.
Take the strap that goes over the back of the dogs back and feed it back through the tri-glide (rectangular clip). That way, it won't keep slipping. See page 17 in the users manual or the Clip-On Leg Ring Support System. If you need another set of leg rings, please call us. You would not need the rear harness but if you do decide to purchase it, you will be able to use the harness also when your dog is not in the cart.
