It is never easy to see your dog growing older. It becomes increasingly frustrating when you fail at making your dog comfortable with its growing age. In the past with the loss of mobility, the dogs were euthanized. As per people, this was the only way to get dogs out of their pain. However over the time, more options have been developed to cater this area. You can now help you dog regain mobility with dog wheelchairs. Although these wheelchairs have been in the market for over 40 years but people are still in the dark about the life changing power of these wheelchairs. These wheelchairs are present for every type of mobility issue. If you are not sure about the type of wheelchair that will be best for your dog then here is a simple guideline for you.

While buying the wheelchair for your dog, make sure that your dog must be able to walk strongly on its front legs. This can be checked by using a towel test by making sure that your dog is comfortable with him/herself. If your dog is small then you can use a small towel, cut two holes in it and adjust the legs of your dog through the holes. By keeping the back leveled, see if your dog can move easily.

Although wheelchairs for dogs can be used indoors but using them outdoor is more practical. In this regard, assess the amount of space you will have in order to accommodate the wheelchair. These wheelchairs are rugged and can be used over most terrains but bigger dogs will need bigger wheelchairs and greater space as well. So do assess the space available. Make sure that your dog has enough spirit to want to be mobile again. If your dog is bright and alert then you are halfway there.
