How to Tell What Type of Wheelchair Your Pet Needs

Determining if your dog is ready for a wheelchair is as simple as using a towel. Grab a large bath towel or beach towel and place it in front of your dog's back legs. Are they able to walk while supported? If yes, than they need a rear dog wheelchair. If your dog can walk, but the front legs give out or splay outwards, they need a full support wheelchair with both front and back wheels.
