The Best Lifting & Support Harness for Dogs with Mobility Problems
If you dog is suffering from loss of mobility in the front or rear legs, it it always a great help to use a high quality lifting support harness to help support your dog. When you use a support harness to help your dog, as well as assisting your dogs walking by removing a lot of the weight from their limbs, you are also protecting your own back from the strain and damage that can be caused by stooping over and trying to lift you dog unaided.
When purchasing your lifting Support Harness for your dog
Its important to choose carefully. Some of the harnesses have a belly pad which sits under the abdomen which will suit most dogs well, and other have straps that go under the dogs rear legs which may be better for dogs recovering from surgery to the abdomen. Make sure the support harness has long enough straps so that you can walk comfortably next to your dog without stooping over, and make sure they are strong and well made, especially for larger heavier dogs that may need a lot of support. At Zoomadog we sell a large range of dog support harnesses, we have everything from front supports for dogs, rear supports and then the full body supports. Below are a few of our best selling harnesses to help you choose the correct one for your dog.
