Introducing Puppy-Protection™ - Pet Wheelchair
Our Puppy-Protection™ - Pet Wheelchair restores the freedom and mobility that a multitude of injuries, surgeries, conditions and even the simple progress of advanced age may have taken from your dog. The wheelchair's seven selectable sizes accommodate everything from toy dog breeds to Newfoundlands - as well as cats, pigs, goats, and other four-legged companions that may need a little help getting around.
- Comfortable padded harnesses can be detached from the wheelchair so the dog can rest while still leashed.
- Padded belly belt provides stomach and spinal support.
- Lightweight aluminum provides durable mobility for pets of all sizes.
- Adjustable frames and struts allow you to fit width, length, and height to your dog's specific needs.
- Included, removable foot straps allow pets with paralyzed rear legs to use the wheelchair without dragging or injury.
- The wheelchair can be quickly, easily disassembled, and compacted for convenient storage or travel.
- Harnesses and Belly belts are machine washable
- Periodically check the adjustment screws and tighten them as needed.
- Wipe the frame and wheels with a towel as needed to remove dirt or water.
- Consult with your veterinarian to determine the best treatment plan.
- Make your home pet wheelchair accessible by installing ramps throughout your home. Teach your pet to use the ramps even when they aren’t in their wheelchair to reduce joint strain.
- Always supervise your dog when they are using their wheelchair, even if they are an expert at getting around in it, to minimize the risk of them tipping over or getting stuck.
- Wheelchairs should only be used for supervised activities, such as going for walks and playtime.
- We recommend providing a 15-minute break from the wheelchair after each hour of use. Dogs should not sit or lay down while using the wheelchair.

WILL MY DOG'S WHEELCHAIR FIT THROUGH DOORWAYS?
Yes, but it may take your dog time to learn how to navigate through the door frame while wearing the wheelchair. Observe and encourage your dog while they are mastering this skill.
CAN MY DOG SIT OR LAY DOWN IN THEIR WHEELCHAIR?
No, this wheelchair is for active users only. Be sure to provide your dog with a 15-minute break after approximately every hour of use.
CAN MY DOG USE THEIR HIND LEGS WHILE IN THE WHEELCHAIR?
Yes, if your dog has moved in their hind legs then they should be left out of the foot straps. You can remove the foot straps from the frame if your dog won't be using them. If your dog's hind legs are paralyzed, use the foot straps to prevent injury.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY DOG TO GET USED TO THE WHEELCHAIR?
It depends on your dog. Some dogs will only take a few days, while others may require much longer. Patience, praise, and practice are crucial in helping your dog become comfortable with their wheelchair, treats may also help.
