Caring for a Three Legged Dog or Cat
Tripawds is your home to learn how to care for a three legged dog or cat, with answers about dog leg amputation, and cat amputation recovery from many years of member experiences.
We have two large, and one small. The small Webmaster is a Webmaster Plus, with a Brush Guard.
As a reminder, the Webmaster is best for rear leg amputees. But if you're in a pinch and need a harness for your front-legger, this will work too. You just need to have your dog in a sit to put the harness on, as the right leg has to go through a leg loop. If your Tripawd is a front left amputee, then it's easy peasy to put on.
One per member please. All we ask is the recipient pays the shipping cost.
Interested in one? PM me for details.

Hi Jerry! I am new to this forum, sorry I couldn't figure out how to send a PM, so I am replying here. If you still have WebMaster in size Large, I would love to take it from you. Our 8-year-old 65 lbs goldendoodle had his hind leg amputated 2 weeks ago and there is a lot of weakness in the remaining leg, which is very concerning. He doesn't want to get up to go to the bathroom and when he does, the leg trembles a lot and it looks painful... I came across this forum while researching what should we do next. I hope having a harness could help. Thank you!
Hi Olga, welcome. Yes we do have one available. Now that you are a registered Tripawds member you can use the private messaging system. See the envelope icon on the toolbar above my reply? Click on it, and then just send me a note with your address.
Keep in mind that a harness will help you help him, but it won't solve the issue. Two weeks is not a long time and he does need time and good rehabilitation exercises to get stronger. Has he been seen by a rehab therapist yet? They can show you how to help him strengthen, and Tripawds Foundation can pay for your first rehab visit too so please take advantage of the program. There are lots of things you can do for him and they are the best people to show you how after evaluating him.
