COMMON QUESTIONS


How will putting my pet on a wheelchair improve his or her health? 

Getting your dog on 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. 


How long will it take for my pet to get used to the wheelchair? 

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. 


Can my pet go down steps while on a wheelchair? 

Yes. Your pet can go up and down some steps with help and supervision. 


How long can my pet stay in the 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. 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. 


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. 


Will a wheelchair-bound dog be able to interact with other healthy dogs? 

Definitely. Socialization is one of the key benefits in getting a handicapped pet a wheelchair. While non-wheelchair dogs may be uneasy around a wheelchair in the beginning, they soon get over it and get down to the business of playing. 


Can the wheelchair be used in various terrains? 

You can your take your wheelchair-bound pet to a grassy park, the beach, pebbly lakesides, or tramping in snow. Just keep in mind that supervision is key particularly in rougher terrains as bumps and ruts can tip the wheelchair over.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS


Blitzen

It was worth the price only to be able to see the joy it gave our GSP/ service dog for the last few months of her life. - Zinger

Shaggy

We strapped him in and off he went like he has had wheels all his life. No more sores on legs and belly, and grins all the time! He now cruises with the dogs, and cats love him.- Danette

Benny

Benny has quickly picked up using the SitGo wheelchair and is getting better about pushing up with his front legs from a "down" position. As he practices with the chair, we expect him to be an expert in no time. - Matt
