Re: Rubbing and sores?

Hi Sammyleigh, Usually a dog would not get sores from the leg rings unless they are in the chair more than an hour or if they get wet. Make sure that the leg rings are not too tight. They should hang down 4" from the frame if you put you hand in the middle connector piece. Make sure the leg rings lo...

Re: Leg rings

Hi, You must use the leg ring connector to hold the tubes together. You can slide that piece forward or back a bit. Maybe you have the leg rings too tight? They should hang down about 4" from the frame if you push downward in the middle. Please call us if you need more help. :thankyou: Nancy

Re: Too much weight on shoulders

Hi, I am going to try to solve this problem of pressure over the shoulder. When you angle the wheels back, it puts more pressure on the shoulders. Try angling the wheels a bit forward so that two indicators are lined up and one is in the back. You should also get a dogs level and take a side view an...

Re: Questions about Quad Wheelchart front attachment

Hi,

I would let Quincy use the rear wheels first and see what happens. If he keeps bowing down, you will probably need to add the front wheels. Feel free to send me a video
of him walking in the cart, :thankyou:

Re: Not having much luck

Hi, I have a little insight on what you are going through. I would recommend taking off the front wheels to see how he does. You can always add them back. When an Amputee uses the Walkin Wheels, or any wheelchair, it's like re learning how to walk again. It does take time. The other important thing ...

You can call Walkin' Pets by Handicappedpets.com at 888-253-0777 and ask for Nancy in the wheelchair Department. If you purchesed...

Re: Length of time in cart

The typical time period in a wheelchair would be up to 1 hour. Keep in mind, she won't be able to sit or lie down in the cart. Most dogs will let their owners know it's time to get out by barking or whimpering. If the dog is in it too long, you might see chaffing around the legs. If you have a doxy,...
