WHAT IS IT FOR?
The Balto Off-Road wheelchair was created to assist dogs with motor disabilities or difficulty walking due to disease or old age.
Hip dysplasia, degenerative myelopathy, severe arthritis of the hind legs, neurological disorders and deterioration of the rear joints that prevents the dog from standing unaided are the diseases for which it is most often indicated.
Made of anodized aluminum, the wheelchair is lightweight, strong and extremely stable. It comes in three sizes that can be adjusted in width, height and length.
Safety straps across the front ensure a superior fit to the dog. During use, an X-shaped harness at the rear comfortably supports the dog. In addition, the harness allows the dog to defecate and urinate without soiling the wheelchair (e.g.: cases of incontinence).
Balto Off-Road also comes with dual velour loops for the hind legs, designed to limit stress and relax the dog during walks.
The wheelchair is engineered to allow the dog to move on any type of terrain; the rubber wheels ensure excellent stability. It comes complete with an upper handle that can be attached, if needed; this allows the owner to lift the dog in cases of severe motor difficulty or to help the dog move over an obstacle, such as going up or down steps or getting on and off a curb.
All the safety straps are covered in soft, breathable Balto material and are hand-washable.
