Conditions that benefit from the use of a Full Support Wheelchair:

Q. How do you get a Large Dog into a Full Support Wheelchair? 

A. If you have a large dog, you should consider that this is not an easy task. We just posted a new blog here. Large Dog in a Full Support Wheelchair

 

Q. How long does it take to build a Full Support Wheelchair?

A. It can take up to 2 weeks.

 

Q. Do you ship out of the the country?

A. Yes, we do. Please call or e-mail and ask about a quote. Canada and Hawaii shipping prices also vary.

 

Q. How do I know if my dog is a candidate for a wheelchair?

A. If your dog is in overall good health, but having trouble walking, then he or she is a good candidate for a wheelchair.  We can determine which design is best after evaluating your dog’s front and rear leg strength. See how to Evaluate Your Dog

 

Q. Do most dogs adapt to wheelchairs?

A. Yes.  And most dogs adapt fairly quickly.  For dogs that aren’t quite sure or seem fearful,  we recommend taking a slow approach and allow your dog to simply check out the new wheelchair for a few days by placing it next to the food bowl, and using just the support saddle without the chair to help him or her get used to having something supporting them.

 

Q. How long does it take for a dog to adapt to a wheelchair?

A. It can take anywhere from two minutes to two weeks for a dog to adapt to a wheelchair.

I like to give tips to owners to help their dog adapt to his or her wheelchair. Here are a few:

  • Treats help of course, but keep it to a minimum if it takes longer than a few days to get your dog moving. Little dogs like Dachshunds and Corgies can gain weight quickly, which can lead to more injury.
  • Take your dog to his or her favorite dog park or play area. Other dogs and toys can be a great distraction from this weird object that is now part of their body!
  • Keep trying!

In addition, if your dog has been inactive for a long period of time (longer than a couple of weeks) you will want to introduce a wheelchair to him or her slowly. An older dog aims to please, and can become overstrained easily. Start with ten minutes at a time, a few times a day, and work up from there.

 

Q. Will a dog wheelchair work for my older dog?

A.  There is no straight answer to this question, as every dog has a different disposition, is in a different health state, and at different levels of strength and motivation.

However, thousands of dogs are living quality lives all around the world in dog wheelchairs.

You and your older dog can still have fun together and share many more memories with the help of a dog wheelchair. As a matter of fact, over 60% of our clients are over the age of 8. Older dogs need exercise as much or more than a younger dog. A dog wheelchair can help keep muscles toned, keep his or her body trim, and his or her joints protected.

If you want a little more time, perhaps years, with your older dog that has a condition that requires a wheelchair, the Ruff Rollin’ design will give you that chance. The Ruff Rollin’ wheelchair has given many dogs a new lease on life, a higher quality of life, and has even helped dogs learn to walk after losing all hope they ever would again.

 

Q. Can my dog urinate and defecate while in the wheelchair?

A. Yes, as long as the wheelchair and support system are fitting properly.  Your dog will not be able to “squat” in the chair, but will be content simply being able to relieve himself or herself while standing up.

 

Q. Can my dog lay down in the wheel chair?

A. No. A dog cannot lay down in a full support wheelchair.  We strongly recommend taking them out of the wheel chair for rest periods, for naps, and for sleep at night.

 

Q. Can a doggie wheelchair be used indoors?

A. It depends on the size of your dog as well as the size of your house. With the exception of large breeds such as Mastiffs, Great Danes, etc. all of our wheelchairs will fit through a standard size door.  We recommend that you do not use the wheelchair indoors with the larger breeds because of the possibility of damage to your walls and furniture.

 

Q. How long can my dog stay in the wheelchair?

A. This often depends on the age and overall stamina of the dog.  It is safe to say your pet may stay in their wheelchair anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Start out with shorter periods of time as often throughout the day as your schedule permits.  PLEASE DO NOT leave your dog in his or her wheelchair unattended for any length of time.  In other words, if you’re at work or place of business, your dog should NOT be left in the wheelchair alone.

FULL SUPPORT WHEELCHAIR

  • Adjustable, light weight, high-strength aircraft grade aluminum frame.

 

Adjustable in height and length allowing you to customize the wheelchair for extreme comfort. The adjustable height feature allows you to achieve the correct amount of weight that you want your dog to bear on his or her legs.

High-strength tubular aluminum has ultimate tensile strength and resistance to corrosion.

 

  • Durable, pneumatic (air filled) tires, with high precision bearings. This means a smooth, comfortable ride for your dog.

 

High precision bearings are waterproof, and roll three times smoother than a standard bearing.

Although not air filled, the front wheels are made of a soft roll rubber, with the feel and action of an air filled, without the hassle of replacing tubes.

 

  • Fully rotational front wheels for easier maneuverability.

 

  • Custom made front and rear support slings, with belly support to fit your dog’s specific build.

 

Support slings are custom built to fit your dog’s specific build. Support slings are gender specific, allowing for easy elimination.

 

  • Support slings are detachable and come with handles (on larger models).

 

This features allows you to detach and use the slings as a handheld support system. For large dogs over 50 lbs, this system proves very useful to get your dog in and out of the wheelchair. (handles are included for dogs weighing over 40 lbs only, unless requested)

 

  • Easy to use, very durable mechanical closure system used to attach front and rear support slings to the frame of the wheelchair.

 

Our exclusive closure system does not break, and can be attached and detached with one hand. This system also gives the support slings extra structure and support, minimizing that amount of “sway” in the rear of the dog.

 

  • Lifetime warranty.

 

All of our dog wheelchairs carry a lifetime warranty on the frame. It is very rare, but should any part of the wheelchair frame need be replaced, we will do so at no charge, and will also cover the shipping to get the part to you as soon as possible.
