Trolley/cart for large Malamute who can no longer walk

622 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?

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

I have a 15 year old pup. She gets arthritis in her back legs. I use a heat pad on them on low heat. I suggest sit on the couch with her head in your lap so you can stroke her and talk to her and use the heat pad for her pain.
