Our sadie, a black lab, is a tripawd x 2 weeks.  Her front right leg was amputated.  She needs support for both her front and rear limbs, looking for a harness that would meet that requirement.  Any suggestions?

Welcome, and thanks for asking! You future forum posts will not require moderation.

Please review these harness comparison articles below in the Tripawds Gear Blog . We recommend the AST Get A Grip harness for most dogs requiring additional assistance. For a handle directly over the hips, we offer the Ruffwear Doubleback harness . The Help 'em Up may work for you, but we no longer carry that.

Which harness is right for my dog?

I have the Web Master harness if you want to try it.  I can send it to you, free of charge.  Just let me know!:)  Our Eddy was a front amputee and he weighed about 75 pounds.

Betsy Golden and Angel, Eddy.  Eddy was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma 7-23-14, had a left rear amputation 8-07-14, had 3 rounds of carboplatin chemotherapy,  a small lung met was discovered in October, had 2 rounds of doxorubicin, and unfortunately more lung mets were discovered.  Eddy fought cancer valiantly and went to the Rainbow Bridge 1-6-15, at the age of 7 years and 359 days, just six days short of his 8th birthday.   Best Dog, Ever....you will never be forgotten.
