My Dog Has Partial Paralysis of his Back Legs. He finds it Hard to Stand Due to His Rear Paws Curling Over.  What Should I Do?

My Dog Has Partial Paralysis of his Back Legs. He finds it Hard to Stand Due to His Rear Paws Curling Over. What Should I Do?

If your vet has confirmed your dog has partial paralysis of their back legs, you should consider ways to increase their mobility and muscle strength.

We help many dog owners keep their dogs active once they show signs of partial paralysis. Get the weight off your dog’s back legs, and keep them independent and active with a set of dog wheels. Putting your dog into a wheelchair can literally be life-changing. Read more about dog wheelchairs here https://zoomadog.co.uk/collections/dog-wheelchairs

Other ways to help include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Put anti-slip rubber matting around the house
  • Raising their food bowls and water
  • Rubber boots to stop them slipping
  • A dog wheelchair
