Hello,

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.

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

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.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!
