A Dog Wheelchair: When Your Best Friend Needs A Best Friend

Many dog owners consider their dogs a pert of the family, and will take whatever measures are necessary to give them comfortable and happy lives. But sometimes, with through injury, disease, or the dimple fact of aging, a dog will become immobile. Dogs which were used to being a part of the familyís activities who have become immobile will very often become depressed.

If your beloved canine friend has fallen on hard times, and canít join in the family fun without help, relax. Help is available in the form of a dog wheelchair. Even a puppy born with genetic abnormalities which will never walk normally on its own can have an active life with the help of a dog wheelchair. A dog wheelchair can be your best friendís best friend.

A Custom Dog Wheelchair

Having a dog wheelchair customized to be a perfect fit for your dog is the best way to ensure that you will be providing the dog with the maximum amount of support and comfort. Almost every dog wheelchair is some arrangement of a harness, which is attached to the dog, and a sling which supports the animalís injured or paralyzed limbs.

A custom-built dog wheelchair will not only be sized to fit your dog perfectly, and to account for his or her gender; it can be made in your choice of colors, just like the dog sweaters you have purchased for your pooch.

While a dog wheelchair is normally designed to support either the back or front limbs of an animal, there are more complex designs which will support all four limbs. Dog carts are designed with different types of accessories, including training wheels, stirrups, and, for amputee dogs, counterweights to replace the missing limbs and allow the dog to maintain its balance.

There is a dog wheelchair available for every breed of dog, from the tiniest Chihuahua to the Giant Mastiff. Owners of large dogs with mobility problems will appreciate having a dog wheelchair which relives them of having to carry their pal from place to place; and the newly-active dog will be delighted as well!

Before you invest in a dog wheelchair, however, exhaust all the avenues available to your dog for rehab and physical therapy. If your dog has any chance at all to regain use of its limbs, try to make it happen. Once your dog becomes comfortable in a dog wheelchair, it may give up trying to move on its own, and become dog wheelchair-dependent. A dog wheelchair should be your last resort.
