Pets can have accidents like people too. They could sustain a few minor cuts and bruises from a fight or worse have major injuries from being hit by a car.
When your pet gets injured or has to have surgery, it is of course very stressful on everyone. It’s hard not to worry about your fur baby as well as to wonder what the end cost is going to be to after seeing the Veterinarian. Pet insurance does ease the pain but is not guaranteed to cover everything.
Being calm as much as possible around your pet when they are hurt helps them to stay more relaxed. Your anxiety can rub off and cause them more stress. It’s tough dealing with animal injuries when they can’t tell you what exactly hurt in their bodies. And of course being poked and prodded by the Vet can be a very scary thing to your animal. Thankfully these days there are so many post surgery pet products out there to help during the recovery process.
One company called Walk About Harnesses in Santa Cruz, California creates slings and supports to aid your pet in so many ways. Not only will you be helping your pet recover quicker, you will also be helping yourself by saving your back from injury. Trying to solely support a large breed pet that needs your help to go outside to do his or her chores can be tough.
Another company that does wonders for disabled pets is called Eddie’s Wheels for Pets. They are based out of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
Eddie’s Wheels have been working with disabled pets for over 20 years and create custom fitted pet carts. They are a huge inspiration to everyone that has a permanently disabled pet. So many handicapped pets get put to sleep because their owners just can’t deal with their disability with all the extra care the pet needs. Having a pet wheel chair improves the quality of life of your pet. They have the freedom to get around on their own and don’t have to rely on their human for their every move.
