How will putting my pet on a wheelchair improve his or her health?
Getting your dog on a wheelchair can help improve many aspects of your pet’s life tremendously. At the forefront are the more obvious physical benefits, your pet will be able to move around, toughen its remaining functional limbs, and fight the other signs of deterioration by improving overall health.Then, there is also the emotional health aspect. Being unable to move around and feeling helpless is a sure downer, especially for once highly active pets. Giving your pet a chance to walk, run, play, and socialize will do wonders for your pet’s attitude and outlook, which in turn will reflect on his or her physical well-being as well.
How long will it take for my pet to get used to the wheelchair?
Every pet is different. Some pets take to mobility aids the almost instantly while others will need a bit more time to get used to the idea and the actual physical sensation of being on one.Many other factors such as a pet’s age, the condition it suffers from, general health and strength, and even personality can determine the length of time a pet will take to get comfortable in a wheelchair. Observe you pet closely and follow the notes on the manual.
Can my pet go down steps while on a wheelchair?
Yes. Your pet can go up and down some steps with help and supervision.
How long can my pet stay in the wheelchair?
If your pet is just starting out on a wheelchair, we recommend short durations to get them used to being on one and to strengthen their forelegs. The basic regimen is a 10-minute session of walking while on the wheelchair over a hard surface, twice a day for the first few days. You can increase the sessions to three times a day once your pet has adapted. As your pet develops more strength, you can extend the time it spends on the wheelchair based on its stamina. An important thing to keep in mind is that pet wheelchairs are not intended for use for long durations. Make the most out of them for your pet by using the wheelchairs for trips outside, playing, socialization, and exercise. After plenty of activity, your pet will most likely be ready to rest and relax at home and off the wheelchair. You also get your pet on the wheelchair more often in a day if he or she needs it.
Can my pet relieve himself/herself while in the wheelchair?
Yes. Our wheelchair is designed in a way that will not hamper your pet’s ability to relieve itself. Being on the wheelchair and going for a walk also reinforces their “bathroom” schedule.
Will a wheelchair-bound dog be able to interact with other healthy dogs?
Definitely. Socialization is one of the key benefits in getting a handicapped pet a wheelchair. While non-wheelchair dogs may be uneasy around a wheelchair in the beginning, they soon get over it and get down to the business of playing.
Can the wheelchair be used in various terrains?
You can your take your wheelchair-bound pet to a grassy park, the beach, pebbly lakesides, or tramping in snow. Just keep in mind that supervision is key particularly in rougher terrains as bumps and ruts can tip the wheelchair over.
Leo’s a well-travelled retriever who’s had a life of adventure on the golden beaches of Australia and in the maple woodlands of Japan. He’s now settled in Sheffield, UK. He’s had a full and active life but at 14 years of age (yes, 14), neurological degeneration makes it difficult to walk. Leo’s wheelchair is life-changing and he couldn’t go out without it.
A well trained and very active dog, paddy dragging his foot occasionally 2 years ago. Degenerative myelopathy was diagnosed last year, and with mobility and incontinence it has gone downhill pretty quickly. I was reluctant to get a wheel cart, but my husband went ahead and ordered it, and I’m so glad he did. Though his walks are still short but He’s still our happy little dog—with wheels.

This is Yuna, a black female pug. She is now 11 months old and recently had a spinal operation. Yuna needed help walking and these have helped her so much. We are still on the road to recovery and doing a lot of hydrotherapy and physio, and we are hopeful she will walk again.
Zeus is our Welsh corgi, who is 7 years old. He’d always had a zest for life Until Sunday. He would take a few steps and fall on his left side. I spent more time buying one, and came across Best Friend Versatility. Have the most reasonable prices. We were so happy once the wheelchair arrived and he could again keep up with our other dogs and play.

Lola is a feisty 10-year-old. She loves belly rubs, long naps, and overseeing home renovations (she likes to sit no more than 6 inches from her dad at any time). She gets very excited when her daddy comes home from work and runs to bring him a toy. Lola has a pinched nerve in her back and she was having some difficulty getting her rear legs to cooperate. With a little encouragement (and bribery—she loves carrots!), she has been able to run around the house and yard with her brother, Herky.
