It’s hard to believe eight months have passed since we first launched this Tripawds Gear blog to help inform folks facing amputation for their pups about the best gear for three legged dogs. In that time we’ve reviewed a lot of helpful products, some of which members may have missed.
With that in mind, here’s are just a few favorite products readers may find useful for making the most of life with their three legged friends …
Best Gear for Three Legged Dogs
The Webmaster is our most popular general use support harness, ideal for helping dogs in and out of vehicles or up and down stairs. It was the first product we ever reviewed, with a demo video featuring Jerry. View our complete selection of recommended harnesses in the Tripawds Gear Shop.
The Grip Trex and Skyliner dog boots from Ruff Wear help provide traction on slippery surfaces and protect paws from developing pressure sores or other harm from hazardous terrain or dangerous road chemicals.
Pawz reusable rubber dog booties are an inexpensive option for those seeking a way to help their dogs from slipping on slick floors.
The innovative design of Pet Loader folding car steps provides easy access to vehicles for dogs without the bulk and weight of larger dog ramps. The Otto Step is another innovative, lightweight but effective option for rear-entry SUVs and pickup trucks.
Balance Pads and Balance Disks from FitPaws help three legged dogs exercise vital core body muscles and develop proper balance techniques. Just watch how easy Maggie makes it look in her Balance Pad exercise video.
These thermo-regulating dog beds feel good on aching bones, and help provide comfort with post-amputation pain management relief too.
Elevated dog bowls help maintain proper posture and make it easier for canine amputees to feed and drink. This selection of raised feeding stations from Fetch Dog include functional and stylish raised bowls for any dog or home decor.
