Disabled Harnesses/Wheelchairs For Dogs-How Do You Know?8 min read

If you would like to save on your pet’s medS. this is a really good option for you that works for my friends

Hi all of my dog lover’s. Hope ya’ll had a wonderful weekend!

In this post I am going to share with you when your pet may need  disabled harnesses/wheelchairs for dogs that can’t stand or walk without assistance.

But first let’s look at  the reason’s behind this…

Does Your Dog Need Assistance Standing & Walking-What Are The Causes?

There are many factors that can contribute to your fur baby not being able to stand and walk without assistance. Some of the most common causes are as follows:

  • Age-although this is not always the case, it can happen to younger dogs too.
  • Orthopedic related issues-degenerative diseases, tumors, trauma.
  • Systemic related issues-caused from congenital and inherited disorders of the nervous system-brain stem disorders, spinal cord disorders, nerve and muscle disorders, birth defects.
  • Neurological related issues-that will have to be diagnosed by your Veterinarian. Your Veterinarian does this by a series of testing.
  • Cushing Syndrome-this is the most frequent reason for your fur baby to have issues standing and walking. Caused by excessive production of cortisol.
  • Geriatric Vestibular Syndrome-is caused by inflammation in the bodies metabolic system causing toxic and metastatic neoplastic disorders of the CNS (central nervous system).

FYI: If your fur baby is experiencing any problems standing and walking, I URGE you to take him/her to see their Veterinarian ASAP as some of these diseases can be detrimental to your pet resulting in death.
