Trolley/cart for large Malamute who can no longer walk

625 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  InkedMarie

My girl is old now and she's been walking less and less distance every day. She still wants to go out for walks, but now only makes it a few yerds, for a few minutes before either stumbling and falling, or simply laying down because she can't walk any more.
I'm giving her Glucosamine, Green tipped mussel powder and CBD oil. She's not eating much either, but still has an appetite for human foods (that'sfor another thread).

Anyway, I was thinking of buying a pull-along garden cart (something like what's in the links below) and putting loads of cusions in there for her comfort. At least she can come out and have a sniff about then.
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas, or experience with assisting large breeds like this?

Great, thanks! I have only just started on the mussel.
Vet said 540mg daily, with 750mg glucosamine and 500mg paracetamol

Have you gone to the vet? Pain meds and/or anti inflammatories may help.
Yeah she had some pain meds before but they were making her sick.

Tonight she is just laying here whining. It’s as if she’s trying to tell me something but I don’t know what. This is horrible.
I can’t ring the vet for around 8 hours until they open. Don’t know how to comfort her

It may be the time for you to think of her suffering. I’m trying to figure out how to say this so I’ll just say it may be time.
Yes, you were right. She’s gone to the spirit world
Thanks for all your help, guys.
