Canine Rehab Success Stories

Nothing gives us more pleasure than hearing from clients whose pets have rehabilitated and no longer need the assistance of a wheelchair.

Teddy, the 14 year old chow, used his cart for strengthening and rehab.

Nothing gives us more pleasure than hearing from clients whose pets have rehabilitated and no longer need the assistance of a wheelchair. Lately, we have been hearing about a number of dogs for whom a cart was a critical piece of their rehabilitation.

Teddy, a 14 year old chow who was a cancer survivor, showed up here with almost no coat (imagine – a naked chow!) and an inability to walk due to Wobblers Syndrome. Four months later,  and 6 lbs. heavier and with a renewed coat, he returned for a cart revision  and showed off his ability to walk briefly on his own.

An even more stunning rehab story is Chewy, a lab who initially needed a counterbalanced cart with training wheels to help him walk. Here he is when he first got his wheels:

Eight months later, Chewy is walking on his own without a cart! Chewbacca’s recovery shows how strengthening by getting adequate exercise in a cart can rehabilitate a dog. His owner writes: ” Here is Chewy without his wheels. He has gotten stronger and is raring to go. He is a little shaky, but getting better every day. Thanks to Eddie’s Wheels for his therapy wheels. We thought it would be a life long thing, but Chewy has shown us different.”

The lesson here? Eddie’s Wheels carts support healing. Healing can take time; but having a great quality of life, including the ability to go for walks can make the difference between a dog who gives up and a dog who gets better!
