My Dog Has Bad Arthritis. Would a Dog Wheelchair Help?

My Dog Has Bad Arthritis. Would a Dog Wheelchair Help?

If your dog has bad or severe arthritis in their back end, a dog wheelchair can really help them live an active life again.

Your dog might have bad arthritis in their hips, rear leg, hock, paw or back. Arthritis will make your dog stiff and unable to walk or run without being in pain. It can be difficult to watch your dog struggle getting around the house or going on their favourite walk, as their joints have become immobile and stiff. They can start to put on weight, not stand for long and perhaps even feel down or off colour.

A dog wheelchair will help take the weight off their back legs and hip area, relieving them of pain and allowing them to be more mobile again. You can put their back legs up fully if their arthritis is very bad, or you can let your dogs back legs walk like normal so they keep their muscle mass as strong as possible.

A dog wheelchair will not cure your dog of arthritis, but it can absolutely help them live a healthier and more joyful life.
