Dogs are a lifetime commitment and require a responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. They require time, attention, patience and lots and lots of love. This is especially so for owners of disabled dogs. Regardless of how your pup developed its disability—from birth, by accident or from old age — there are ways to make life as comfortable as possible for them.
As pawrents, you’d want your pup to live its best life regardless of the circumstances. While it might be tough on you to see your furkid go through life with a little more challenge than other pups, here is three useful equipment designed to provide your disabled pup with a leg up in life.Halo Source: prweb
Designed for visually impaired dogs, the halo protects your pup from injuring itself as it bumps into furniture, walls or humans. It essentially acts as your pup’s bump guard. This is especially useful for dogs in a new environment or those that are still familiarising themselves with its surrounding. Halos are usually lightweight, comfortable and will not hinder your dog’s daily movements. With a variety of designs available, you can find one that your furkid is comfortable with.Dog Wheelchair
Just like our human wheelchair, a dog wheelchair is for pups that have lost control or motion of their legs or had them amputated. The wheelchair provides your furkids with balance, mobility and the ability to remain independent. These wheelchairs tend to be fully adjustable to suit the size and build of your pup to ensure comfort and effectiveness.Lifting Harness Source: Kaboodle World
Lifting harnesses are for pups with spinal issues or arthritis that are still able to walk. With the harness, these dogs are able to stand with balance without causing unnecessary stress to its joints as it helps to take the weight off. This harness is also suitable for dogs who are still adjusting to having an amputated leg or those recovering from surgery. Depending on your pup’s needs, you may get a total body harness, a front lift or rear lift harness.
Though it might take your pup (and you) some time to adapt and adjust to these life changes, it can be done.
