DOG WHEELCHAIRS


Unleash the freedom of mobility for your pup through a high quality, adjustable dog wheelchair sold by Grey Snouts.


A dog wheelchair will help your pup regain or retain their sense of mobility, confidence and freedom to get around. 


Depending on your pup's health, strength, and willingness to adapt to using a wheelchair it can be a great fit!

STEP 1: MEASURE YOUR DOGS HEIGHT FROM GROUND TO BACK

How to Measure Dog for a Wheelchair

Use a tape measure or ruler and measure from the floor to your pet’s back at its hindquarters.  


Depending on your pet’s current capabilities and its willingness to cooperate, this can be a 1-person or 2-person job. If your pet has very little or no rear-limb strength, one person can be the support while the other does the measuring. You may also lay your dog on it's side, and measure as best you can that way.

STEP 2:  ESTIMATE YOUR DOG'S WEIGHT

How to Measure Dog for a Wheelchair

The standard rear support weight ranges are as follows:


1-10 lbs. = XXS Wheelchair

10-20 lbs. = XS Wheelchair

20-45 lbs. = Small Wheelchair

45-80 lbs. = Medium Wheelchair

75-100 lbs. = Large Wheelchair

90-140 lbs. = Extra Large Wheelchair

STEP 3:  SELECT THE RIGHT TYPE OF SUPPORT

STANDARD REAR SUPPORT


This is the right fit for the majority of people looking for dog wheelchairs. If this is your situation, what you need is a standard rear-support dog wheelchair. These chairs consist of two wheels at the back with a harness to attach the wheelchair to your dog. They’re suitable for dogs with strong front legs but no or limited use of their hind legs.

SITGO ENHANCED REAR SUPPORT


The SitGo enhanced mobility dog wheelchair offers the same experience and support of a standard rear-support wheelchair -- but offers the added value that pets and sit, or lay down while in their wheelchair! Made of the same durable, lightweight materials as our rear leg and quad support wheelchairs, the SitGo is the first of its kind to allow for voluntary sitting and lying down. And, because the rear section can be lowered it makes getting your dog in the wheelchair (especially if he or she is big and heavy) becomes an easier, no-lift operation.

FULL & QUAD SUPPORT


Full-support dog wheelchairs are designed for dogs who have limited use of all four legs. They’ll still need to have some use of their front legs to move themselves around, but these models can be set to take varying amounts of weight off the front legs (in addition to completely supporting the rear legs), making it much easier for injured or infirm dogs to move around.

DOG WHEELCHAIR FAQS

Q: How much does a dog wheelchair cost? 

Our dog wheelchairs vary in cost by type and by size. Our extra small rear support dog wheelchairs cost $167 and our large rear support wheelchairs cost $249. Our full support dog wheelchairs range between $325 and $535 for an extra small to large, and our SitGo rear support specialty dog wheelchairs cost between $329 for an extra small and $499 for a large/XL chair.

Q: How do I help my dog adjust to a wheelchair?

If your pet is just starting out on a wheelchair, we recommend short durations to get them used to being on one and to strengthen their forelegs. The basic regimen is a 10-minute session of walking while on the wheelchair over a hard surface, twice a day for the first few days. You can increase the sessions to three times a day once your pet has adapted. As your pet develops more strength, you can extend the time it spends on the wheelchair based on its stamina. 


Every pet is different. Some pets take to mobility aids the almost instantly while others will need a bit more time to get used to the idea and the actual physical sensation of being on one.Many other factors such as a pet’s age, the condition it suffers from, general health and strength, and even personality can determine the length of time a pet will take to get comfortable in a wheelchair. Observe you pet closely and follow the notes on the manual.

Q: How will my pet's health improve in a wheelchair? 

Getting your dog in a wheelchair can help improve many aspects of your pet’s life tremendously. At the forefront are the more obvious physical benefits, your pet will be able to move around, toughen its remaining functional limbs, and fight the other signs of deterioration by improving overall health.Then, there is also the emotional health aspect. Being unable to move around and feeling helpless is a sure downer, especially for once highly active pets. Giving your pet a chance to walk, run, play, and socialize will do wonders for your pet’s attitude and outlook, which in turn will reflect on his or her physical well-being as well.

Q: How long can my pet stay in the wheelchair? 

An important thing to keep in mind is that pet wheelchairs are not intended for use for long durations. Make the most out of them for your pet by using the wheelchairs for trips outside, playing, socialization, and exercise. After plenty of activity, your pet will most likely be ready to rest and relax at home and off the wheelchair. You also get your pet on the wheelchair more often in a day if he or she needs it.

Q: Can my pet relieve himself/herself while in the wheelchair? 

Yes. Our wheelchair is designed in a way that will not hamper your pet’s ability to relieve itself. Being on the wheelchair and going for a walk also reinforces their “bathroom” schedule.

Q: Where can I buy a dog wheelchair? 

You can order a dog wheelchair for any size dog, with support for either their rear legs, or all four legs, right from our website, greysnouts.com.
