I was gifted a black, padded sling by Outward Hound and no longer need it. It is about 12 inches wide with wide velcro closure and straps that also velcro together. It was a bit too small for Fionn who is 85lbs (he wears an XL Ruffwear harness ) so it didn’t velcro shut, but I could use the handles well enough to support him after surgery. I’m guessing it’s a large, there is no size on it and the company doesn’t have it on their website. I can send a picture and take better measurements if someone wants it!

Hi,

 I have an 80 lb (but were working on weight) lab mix.  Do you think the sling might fit him?  He has an Osteosarcoma too and is having his amputation surgery tomorrow.  Thanks for being so generous!

Sorry for the late reply! I haven’t been active on the forums much lately. I gave the sling to UC Davis to use since I didn’t get any replies for so long. Sorry. I hope your pup is doing well though. The first few weeks are tough, but it DOES get better 🙂

Oh gosh no need to apologize. We’re glad the sling went to a good place!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
