Should Your Dog Use A Walkin’ Wheels Cart?

At our animal rehabilitation center, VCA-VRA, we like to keep a full spectrum of Walkin' Wheels cart components. We like them because they are extremely adjustable, and they have a wide selection of components that we can send owners home with, eliminating the hassle of waiting for an order to be completed and shipped.

This video shows how the cart functions, and how it fits to your dog. If your dog has recently had surgery on its legs, it could be useful to use a cart to help recovery.

While carts are helpful to your dog in some situations, there are times when they might not be the best choice. For instance, if your home has stairs, or if your dog is very large, a cart might be a larger hassle than it is a benefit. Here is another video that shows how to put your dog in a Walkin’ Wheels healing cart.

You know the saying "dogs have owners, but cats have servants." In any case cats frequently don't like to go through repetitive routines. Sadly, that's the basis of the typical animal rehabilitation exercise program. Meet Jeffery, a ten month old castrated male domestic short-haired cat who doesn't mind water and who is willing to let us "servants" recommend some repetitive exercises for OUR benefit.

With patience and a great team effort we can get cats into a routine that can lead to improvement in their quality of life issues. To learn more about our cat rehabilitation services, contact VCA-VRA today
