Carts: Carts or wheelchairs for dogs, are a great way to help your dog cope with DM once the hind legs can no longer bear weight. A word of advice is to not wait for your dog to go down before measuring for a cart. Many cart companies custom build carts and accurate measurements are needed. It is much easier to measure and get accurate measurements if your dog can still stand as you take measurements. Each cart company is different so be sure to check with them on how you should measure your dog. There are many cart companies that exist and to help make a decision on which company to choose, look at return policies, costs, what you want in a cart, options to equip it as a quad cart, customer service and ease of use. A brand that works for one dog may not be what your dog is comfortable with. If you are based in the U.K. or U.S. take a look at our page for 'Cart/Wheelchair Companies and loan organisations.
