New to wheelchair, peeing issues

Postby verf » Fri Oct 14, 2016 12:30 pm

My 12.5 y/o GSD has only had the wheel chair two days and is taking to it pretty well.
My question is about the rear harness (twin tubes). His flow seems obstructed. not near the stream he has without it. In fact, he'll pee a bit, but as he takes a step, the stream opens up, which is why I know somethings not right with the harness.
I'm looking for tips on the position of the tubes and the velcro that holds them together, maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks! HUGE improvement for him!

Thanks for the response.

Its def a C, with the tubes held together with the velcro strap. The tubes go front to back (parallel with the wheel chair). He's taken to using it which is great. But still seems to struggle to pee. Number 2 is easy for him

Are the leg rings hanging down about 2-3" from the frame? If they are too tight, it might be causing pressure on the abdomen.

AH!
I must have misunderstood somehow when I watched the video. I thought it wasn't suppose to droop! Ill fix that right away and see how it goes!
Thank you very much!

My beloved Sarge passed Friday. Our hearts are broken.

But I thank Walkin' Wheels for a great product that extended his being able to go outside and enjoy life for a little longer.
