leg rings causing redness on groin?

Postby hippie1969 » Wed Nov 16, 2016 6:28 pm

Hi!
My dog is finally getting adjusted to using his quad cart thanks to everybody's suggestions :)
However, I have noticed a lot of redness around the groin where his rear leg rings sit-could they possibly be too tight?
Should I be leaving more space between them and the Velcro connector?
Thank you!! :)

Hi again, The leg rings might be too tight or left on dog too long. The velcro connector in the middle should be tight so the two tubes are touching. Also, it could also be that the chaffing occurred if the leg rings are wet.
