Front legs

Post by MimiL »

I have a back leg support small chair. My dog does the "downward dog" yoga position with her front legs stretched out in front of her when I put her in it. Is there some adjustment I need to make? Thanks.

Hi MimiL!

Thank you for posting! You can always send Walkin' Pets photos of your pup in the wheelchair for fitting assistance. Our fitting specialists can be reached at helpme@walkinpets.com

It does sound like this could either be a fitting issue or a front attachment may be needed. We would be happy to help!

I captured 3 abandoned kittens that are not right is there anywhere in Granville County NC
To get them help? Everyone has said to just pit them down but my daughter who is 8 is distraught over the idea. The guys at https://www.bigfootwildlifesolutions.com/ said that all they could do was catch them then I was responsible. It was nice of them to come out but I'm now lost.

Hi Catguy!
Are these domestic kittens? I would recommend reaching out to Humane Societies/Animal Rescues or Veterinary Hospitals to see if they are able to help!

Hi Catguy,

Can you describe the disability or upload a pic? I know someone in NC who cares for disabled kittens and she may know someone who can help, but I'd like to have more details before contacting her. There is a link to upload pics at the bottom of the posting screen where it says Attachments.

Hello CatGuy!
Please please please give us more info on these kittens. I am in NC and know various people in rescue. If you can describe the kittens as in, are they eating on their own? Do they have any obvious deformities? can they walk? are they dragging their back legs? Do their heads/faces look normal? Answers to these questions will help a lot, as would photos (even if all you have aren't great, some are better than none).
thank you for trying to help them!
