Dog Carts (a.k.a. Dog Wheelchairs)
Wheelchairs for Dogs can be a game-changer for dogs who have partly or completely lost use of their hind legs. A special adapter (sold separately) can provide stability for the front legs as well. Wheelchairs can aid in rehabilitation or recovery after back injury or surgery, or they can be used indefinitely for permanently disabled dogs. We carry small, medium and large Walkin’ Wheels(TM) brand modular dog carts in stock, and we can order the mini cart for you. Wheelchairs are available for sale, or you can utilize our fair and reasonable rent-to-own program if you’re unsure how long your dog will need to use it.
Let us take care of the delivery, assembly and sizing. We’ll provide you with a detailed guide to getting your dog used to the wheelchair and will be there for you if you have problems. And if it doesn’t work out, we have a very reasonable return policy. Download the Walkin’ Wheels(TM) Price List.
Dog wheelchair rentals and sales must be authorized by your veterinarian, or our doctor can perform an evaluation to ensure a wheelchair is right for your dog.
Dog Lifting Harnesses
Harnesses – Large dogs frequently develop weakness or difficulty getting up as they age. There are many, many different lifting devices available for dogs. So many clients and colleagues gave us rave reviews about the HelpEmUp(TM) Harness that we decided to carry them in stock. These harnesses can be adjusted to maximize comfort for your dog and ease of use for you. We’ll help you find the right size, and our Nurse Technician will visit your home along with her patient assistant Fred the Zebra (pictured below) so that you can practice putting on and taking off the harness without causing discomfort to your dog. Harnesses are available for sale with a reasonable return policy in case it’s not the right solution for your dog. Download the HelpEmUp Price List.

Instructions for Measurements:
Don’t worry, we’ll double-check the measurements for you, but this will get us in the ballpark.
- Fold of Flank: with your dog lying on its side, measure from the toes to the fold of the flank: this is the flap of skin that connects the dog’s upper leg to their body (like the webbing between your index finger and thumb). Leave your dog’s leg in a natural position, slightly bent, instead of pulling it straight.
- Armpit to Rump: Measure from the back of the front leg to the back of the rear leg. We only need this measurement for dogs 25 pounds or smaller.
