For long term use, your dog may benefit from a custom wheelchair or cart. We can help you determine if your dog would benefit from a cart as well as help direct you to the right company for getting the cart.

Help’em Up Harness®
The Help’em Up Harness is designed as a mobility aid. This unique harness has two conveniently placed handles so that you can safely give your dog a lift anytime, anywhere. It’s the perfect choice to help your dog get into the car, go up or down steps or ramps, recuperate from surgery, assist your dog in his or her physical rehabilitation program or help your weak dog in being more mobile. Ideal for dogs with:
The fully adjustable and well-padded harness is designed to be worn for long periods of time during the day. We recommend you remove it at night for your pet’s comfort and for routine cleaning. The harness is machine washable, then simply air dry. The 5 point adjustable strap system combined with air flow fabrics, fastex fasteners and perforated neoprene allow for a comfortable fit. By lifting your dog’s weight from below, under the chest and under the pelvis, you reduce strain on joints and avoid compressing internal organs.
Available in small, medium, large and extra large the Help’em Up Harness fits dogs from 10-170 pounds. The “Conventional” unit is the best fit for most dogs, offering the most pelvic support. It fits all females and most males. Some males require the “U-band” version which allows for pelvic support without hindering urination when the penis sits further back.
