When it comes to helping your disabled pet get around the house, there are a few options. A wheelchair is great for exercise and running around outside, but it can be cumbersome to use in the house. You may find your pet getting stuck on furniture or damaging your walls and baseboards with their chair. If your dog is less willing to follow you from room to room or cries for you to carry them, they may need some help indoors.
Fortunately, there are a few simple mobility solutions to keep your handicapped pet active and safe indoors.
Traction Socks are a great option for dogs that struggle to find their footing and have difficulty standing up after a long nap. The socks are super comfy and feature rubber soles to help your pup propel themselves forward without falling. The traction socks are also helpful on hardwood, tile, or laminate flooring that can be slippery.
Paralyzed pets will often scoot and drag themselves around when they’re not in their wheelchair. This can lead to rug burn and abrasions on their chest, abdomen, and hind legs. A drag bag will create a barrier between your dog’s sensitive skin and the rough floor, helping to prevent scrapes and hard-to-heal pressure sores from forming. The drag bag is made of a waterproof material that’s easy to clean, and is roomy enough that a dog can wear a diaper while they use it.
If you’re looking for a wheelchair alternative for inside the house, the Walkin’ Scooter is a great option. The scooter combines the drag bag and the wheelchair for the best mobility inside the home. The base is padded for comfort and is on caster wheels, allowing your dog to take corners easily. The scooter is designed for inside your home and can roll across many different surfaces, and features a low profile that allows the pet to rest and lie down while in the scooter.
Getting your paralyzed pet up or down the stairs doesn’t have to strain your back. A rear lifting harness can help support your paralyzed dog’s hind end and lift their back legs. The Walkin’ Lift Rear Harness will allow you to bring your disabled pet up the stairs safely, and is fully compatible with the Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair.
These mobility solutions are great for helping your disabled pet get around the house, and can help keep them safe and comfortable. With the right mobility aids, your pet can move around with ease and enjoy life in your home.
