Last week we provided an overview of our favorite, mobility harnesses for canine amputees. Now, we’ll get into specifics for each type of harness. Today we want to talk about the Custom Pet Support Suit by Animal Suspension Technologies.
Forget a Towel, The Pet Support Suit Has Arrived
Every dog has slightly different mobility needs. Tripawds who hardly need help getting around will find the Ruff Wear Webmaster is an ideal fit. But for others who need a higher level of assistance, the custom Pet Support Suit can be the perfect device to help restore quality of life.
Each Pet Support Suit is tailored with a specific dog in mind and custom built to size. For hard-to-fit breeds with exceptionally long or short torsos, or a very thin belly compared to the chest, this harness is the best way to ensure that you get the control and support needed for your dog.
We became fans of the Pet Support Suit when we tried it on Tripawds Founder Jerry (see video below). The suit is exactly as described:
- works for both front and rear leg amputees
- non-slip fabric won’t rotate
- complete wrap-around design
- full underbelly support
- design allows for male anatomy
- several points of adjustment
- adjustable handles for taller people
- easy to put on and remove
- USA-made to order in about 3 business days
An optional shoulder strap provides additional leverage for hoisting your dog up off the floor.
The harness can be worn all day if necessary, while allowing dogs to live life as normally as possible. Keep in mind that the Pet Support Suit’s durable fabric is thick, so monitor your dog when she’s wearing it during summer.
NOTE: Custom harness requires 3-5 business days for production. There are no returns allowed on this custom harness, so please make sure it’s what your Tripawd needs, then measure carefully.
Measure the girth of your dog’s chest, belly and body length to ensure a proper fit. Click the image below to view the sizing instructions at a larger size in a new window.
