Caring For Paraplegic Dogs
Mobility carts can extend and improve the lives of paraplegic dogs.
Nita was a standout among her Jack Russell terrier littermates, clearly the most vivacious of a lively bunch. Her owner, Lyn Dodd, still chuckles at the thought of her favorite dog, a happy companion in her customary shotgun seat, riding around in Dodds pickup truck. It wasnt until Nita was 14 1/2 years old that she began having health problems. One day I noticed that Nita was sitting in an odd way. Her hind leg looked funny the way it sprawled out to one side, her rump rolled under. I also noticed that she was not putting weight on one foot; that leg seemed weaker than the other, Dodd describes.
