My 11 yo german shepherd/english bulldog could really benefit from a cart. I have been in contact with gunnars wheels for over a year and none have surfaced his size. I am just looking to see if anyone has one here. My boy is about 70lbs. I would have to look up the measurements I gave them… Please let me know if you see any that may work. Thank you!

Hello Courtney, what’s going on with your dog? I’m assuming he’s a Tripawd?
If he hasn’t seen a canine rehabilitation therapist yet, please make sure you do before getting a wheelchair . The wrong size cart, even if it’s off by just an inch, could make his situation worse.

I have a 70 lb lab and found online a site named “Eddie’s Wheels”. I called them and they make carts for front leg amputes for dogs of any size, and provide a chart for measurements. I was thinking about having Brownie’s vet take the measurements if I decide to go that route. As Jerry said the measurements have to be exact.
